Ok we walked into a completely empty restaurant that was serving food but was told they were fully booked inside and garden for the entire day/night. This may lead you to believe that we must have walked in looking like hobos, possibly drunk, rude, loud,...More

Very tasty crab & crayfish open sandwich. The bread is homemade and tastes wonderful. The goats cheese salad was excellent too. The staff were very welcoming and the atmosphere was relaxing, especially after our scenic walk halfway around Pagham Harbour. We very much wish to...More

Stylish restaurant with seafood and fish which is hard to beat. The freshest crab with tiger prawns for starter and lovely local lobster with superb chips as main, lovely hazelnut ice cream to finish, everything we had was delicious.

We were short of somewhere to eat and had had a recommendation for this restaurant, we turned up without a booking and although they were fully booked they managed to fit us in for a couple of courses, One was enough, it was simply divine....More

Very friendly staff and on the whole the food was good with the exception of my son's steak which he asked for medium-rare and it was very overcooked. He can't bear to make a fuss so didn't say anything which was a pity as I...More

Lovely well cooked and fresh food and a nice place to go for a special occasion. Nice decor in an interesting old building.

I live in France and come to Chichester five or six times a year. I am very pleased that I found the Crab & Lobster, tucked away at the end of a winding road leading to the harbour. Great sea food, good service, pleasant ambience...More

Had the 3 course fixed price menu which was OK. Lovely area, shame there is no view from the restaurant. Nice atmosphere. Portions on the small side, was this due to it being the cheaper lunch at £26.50 compared to the A la Carte? Was...More

Hello. Although you can almost see the Crab & Lobster from Church Farm, it will take you just over 20 minutes to drive, as you will have to go via Runcton & Hunston. But it will be well worth the visit. We were there again... More
Hi How about the accommodation? What was good / not so good about your room? Thanks.

We didn't use the accommodation. But if the restaurant was anything to go by I'd say the accommodation would be good! It's in a lovely location

Not a question... I do quite agree about the "Who's the Cod?" approach..... at the prices charged (for excellent food it must be said), the courtesy of noting which diner has which dish - like the "sort your own cutlery out" - doesn't live up to £50-60 per head we paid. It's not "more friendly" to have to stop your conversation to answer such a question when the food arrives.
