Everything was amazing as usual and a high standard of service. The smoked haddock chowder was really tasty. The tuna was fresh and complemented with the ginger and Asian slaw. The venison faggot was the highlight, juicy and yummy. The smoked bacon loin and chips and poached egg was very good and the homemade tomato ketchup was fantastic ( it... More

Being part of the Lovely Pub group, i was hoping that the Crabmill had a Price fix menu. It did. We were shown to a lovely table by the window. All the seats in the restaurant had a sheepskin covering making them extremely comfortable. The service was excellent as was the food. I would recommend booking for a table here... More

We booked this having been to The Boot previously which is in the same chain. The food was great - freshly cooked local produce and the beer was very well kept. Service was top notch - all staff were very pleasant and couldn't do enough to help. One of our party had special dietary needs and I mailed them beforehand... More

We hadn't visited the Crabmill for around 5 years so we didn't really know what to expect. Fortunately, we were not disappointed, it is still a smashing country pub and the food was excellent. A nice pint of Atlantic pale ale too! Not sure why the waiter had shorts on though!

We have visited the Crabmill, Preston Bagot for lunch, on three separate occasions over the last seven months. Consistently good food, service and always a warm welcome from the staff. Love the cosy fire in the winter months. We have tried a few of the Lovely Pubs in the chain and this is our favourite.

As I only live a mile away from this gastro pub I forget to write a review! We eat out a lot & yet we end up returning here. It is consistently excellent with an imaginative seasonal menu and a daily specials menu. There are items for all palettes including the most picky. The side veggies are lovely. My only... More

Visited here for the second time yesterday and it's was still as great as my first visit! Really friendly staff and fabulous food. We had rustic breads which came with a tasty pesto and a slow roasted garlic bulb, followed by roast Pork Sunday lunch - was delicious. Highly recommended!!

Went with some friends who live locally for Sunday lunch. It is a very busy pub with a great atmosphere. We all chose the traditional roast and it was excellent. service was friendly and efficient from a young team. Recommended.

Description
This charming traditional country pub and restaurant has an unmistakable warmth about it, as seen in the furnishings and the menu. The atmosphere is friendly and informal, while the overall impression is of a pub which is comfortable, light and open. The lounge area has sumptuous tub chairs clustered in conversational groups and among the interestingly themed rooms is the New “Chocolate Rude room” with slightly risqué caricature pictures. Each room has its own individual appeal and any can be reserved for private diners. We are in our tenth year and to celebrate, come and see our refurbished al fresco dining area!The Crabmill is Good Pub Guide Approved and has won awards for food and wine. The Crabmill has also been selected for inclusion in the UK’s top 50 Gastro pubs with The Independent.
