One of my favourite places to eat. Great food if you like fish. Fantastic view from the window of the harbour which is worth a visit . Friendly staff. Can't wait until after Christmas so I can go and have fish and chips.. Yum

2 slightly foodie blokes went to The Lobster Shack which was inexplicably closed so retreated to The Crab and Winkle. Jolly nice it was too!

Scallops, black pudding and chorizo starter was top drawer.

Boullabaise just right with classic content and premium quality ingredients.

Creme Brulee also just right (but 7.95!) so pud and coffee at 4 quid ish turned a good value high quality meal into one that felt just a tad pricey.

Disabled access not ideal due to location but an effort has been made with a stair lift.

Service excellent. Comfort excellent. I feel a bit mean giving only stars but there's no 4.5 star.

Just had one of my best meals out. We had the scallop starter..... mmmmm, and then skate wing and Dover sole for mains..... I can’t wait to go back as there was a lot more on the menu that just looked so nice. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

We were visting friends and booked a table for four in the restaurant.

Started with the scallops which although small were very tasty...

Main course was the main course platter . When it arrived it looked spectacular. It had a bit of everything and didn't fail to impress . Was an experience .

Finished with the chocolate box with caramel which was very nice.

Price for 3 courses for the 4 of us with a couple of drinks and a tea was £250 . So it's not the cheapest night out but it was good quality and we will be going back .

Staff welcoming and Service very good.I had the Fillet of Turbot, which was fantastic. On a bed of mashed potato and a delicate sauce. Unfortunately, my wife ordered Dover Sole. A dish which is a particular favourite, which she has order in numerous restaurants around the country, so we both knew what the dish, when it arrived, should have looked like.. However, what arrived had us both quite confused. The size was more like a Lemon Sole and the individual fillets about the size of Sea Bass. The taste was also quite distant from the meaty, succulent Dover Sole that we have both experienced. At £25 plus any side orders, while not the most expensive on the menu, was most dissapointing,
