This was my second visit to this pub. The first time was in the summer and I enjoyed a sumptuous sharing platter of fish with my husband. I was a little disappointed to find this not on the menu now, but presume this is due to limited supplies in winter months. I had crab sandwiches, which were tasty, however the... More

In the midst of a refit when we went so always impressed if a cafe can carry on serving good food which it was. Not spectacular , just good. There was a large party in the restauarant that night which were incredibly loud - but not Crabshells fault! Like the ambiance and I imagine in the summer its lovely by... More

We have been visiting The South Hams for the last 6 years over New Year and driven past the Crabshell Inn so many times. Our usual haunts in Salcombe were closed and we decided to give it a try and we were delighted with everything; service; food; ambience. We enjoyed it so much we returned two days later and once...

After wandering through Kingsbridge and consulting TripAdvisor we found The crab shell. Lovely dog friendly rustic pub right on the waterfront. Food was yum, service very friendly and swift! Highly recommended!

I visit regularly mostly for lunch with a friend and the food and service is always just perfect. This evening me and husband visited for dinner and again as expected the food was to die for and the service super friendly 😁 see you again soon.

We stopped at the Crabshell for lunch and had a really lovely meal. Very impressed with the food although it wasn't a big menu and contained a lot of fish dishes which I don't like. However, I did find a fishless meals and thoroughly enjoyed it.

A trip out for a pub lunch brought us to this lovely place , right by the riverbank. The service is great and the food is fabulous ! I have a small appetite and their 'smaller plates' was a delight! I had the Ham hock , and it was sublime ! Hubby chose from the mains and was well satisfied... More

Stopped for lunch; brilliant view of the river/ estuary from the window tables. Pleasant atmosphere and really helpful, cheerful staff. On site car park is a plus but I've passed the place in summer and it gets very full. Food was delicious and right size portions. A bit different (beef hotpot with rosti & sea bass with crab linguine) with... More
