This review is not about the warm comforting feeling you get when you arrive at Crab manor. The warm reception you recieve by the staff at Crab manor. This review is not about the wonderful rooms you are escorted to by the staff of Crab Manor. Or the beautiful gardens you walk through to get to your room. Neither is... More

Decided last minute to go for lunch at the Crab and Lobster. Phoned ahead and reserved a table as even through the week it gets very busy. Arrived an hour later to a warm reception at the newly refurbished bar area. We ordered drinks and took advantage of the hot chipolata sausages on the bar, that are free to anyone... More

Food was of high quality with choices not typically Christmas fare. The service was also of high quality and all of it with a smile and a chat. Could be remedied as expensive but can justify the prices with quality and service. Try just eating in the bar with the amazing collection of paraphernalia on the walls.

It's some time since my last visit here but I'm afraid I won't hurry back - at least not on a Sunday lunchtime. Lovely venue but conversation was impossible when the musicians were in the room. It was just TOO loud. Nice menu but a bit expensive. The food was nowhere near as good at it used to be. Disappointed... More

The big draw for this restaurant is its novel decoration, very unique and interesting. The food prices are what you would pay in a Michelin star restaurant but the food is nothing special. The ingredients are good solid and flavoursome, the cooking could be better to enhance the flavours. The dishes we had were under seasoned and ordinary. The service... More

This was our sixth stay. We stayed in the bird island room. The decor is beautiful. As always, the bed was very comfortable with lovely high quality bedding. The hot tub and sauna were just perfect. The staff here are all great; especially the man who showed us down to our room. We had dinner and breakfast, both were faultless.

Simply stunning food in a great atmosphere and attentive staff. Specialising in fish, there was a superb menu to choose from both the regular menu and a range of specials. We were there for two nights so I tried "Posh fish and chips" one night and the plate of Lamb done different ways the next. Both were amazing, perfectly cooked.... More

Broke our journey back from Hogmanay in Edinburgh to home in Leeds with lunch in this brilliant restaurant. Lovely food, fabulous food, and the standard as high as ever. Every time we return, we are not disappointed.

We have been eating at the Crab & Lobster for over 10 years, and it's always been a favourite, but recently we have been disappointed with the standard of food and service. We have regularly ordered the half lobster but noticed over the last 12 months this dish is very much padded out with other seafood. This dish is now... More
