Restaurants serving Fresh Crab in Bournemouth

We are visiting Bournemouth next weekend. My wife loves Fresh Crab as a main course but since Corkers in Poole closed we have been unable to find any restaurant in the area that serves crab as a main course. Can anyone suggest somewhere within easy reach of Bournemouth please

2. Re: Restaurants serving Fresh Crab in Bournemouth

I've not eaten at The Crab Restaurant in the centre of town (Park Central Hotel) but they do list crab as a main course as well as fruits de mer etc.

The places I can recommend for a special crab meal would include: The Ship in Distress, Christchurch; Rick Stein's, Sandbanks; The Pig on the Beach, Studland; the Priory, Wareham; and the Guildhall Tavern, Poole. However, none of these guarantees crab as a season-round main course. If the weather is stormy, potters won't be able to go to sea anyway, so supply of really fresh crab is never guaranteed and it's worth ringing the restaurant to check if they have it, and if reserve if you really want to eat it.

If you're looking further afield, The Crab House Cafe, in Portland, is also pretty good.
