The Crab House is a wonderfully informal seafood eatery, with bare board tables and friendly staff. In warm weather there are many tables outside. The food is good, not exceptional, and the wine list is well chosen and reasonably priced. Recommended.

Went here whilst on holiday in Dorset and have to say I had one of the tastiest meals I have ever had! I had the Moroccan gurnard which was the first time I'd eaten this fish and it was delicious. My husband had the Chinese whole crab and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Friendly staff and very accommodating as we hadn't... More

Went to celebrate our anniversary, staff helpful, food very good, nice ambience about it, you had people in shorts to suits but it was great, only thing that disappointed me personally was 3 scallops on the starter dish when they are charging £11.00 ! Should of been at least 4 . Wouldn't stop me going again though. Not cheap .

Had dinner for four (2 adults, 2 children). Food was excellent, in particular a moroccan-flavoured gurnard. Really loved the informal atmosphere and friendly welcome. Very appealing to see the chefs at work right in front of us. Staff was very helpful in explaining our 15 year old how to crack and eat a whole crab (which was very tasty). Overall... More

I was worried we would only get one course in but the staff were so efficient we had three courses with time to spare. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food excellent. Good quality seafood does not need... More

Quirky decor, chesil beach view, fun to crack the crab with a hammer. Fish dishes are excellent cooked. Big portions. The dessert is top notch too! Love the passion fruit sobert, unlike any other sobert i had.
