Crab & Lobster, Sidlesham

A stunning rural location, and cosy fine dining that champions local fresh fish. After supper you can stay in one of the luxury bedrooms, or book the self-catering cottage next door.

Weekend Escapes
Read our review of Crab & Lobster, Sidlesham

Sitting pretty on the banks of the picturesque Pagham Harbour in Sidlesham, the Crab & Lobster is a 350-year-old pub turned fine dining restaurant with rooms. With a menu that (shocker!) puts a big emphasis on fresh fish, ingredients are where possible all sourced from local producers, presented in a mix of Mediterranean and traditional British dishes. Selsey crab cakes, battered hake, rump of lamb — it’s good stuff. Vegetarian options are creative and don’t feel like an afterthought. Plus, crucially for the sake of your Instagram feed, everything’s gorgeous!

If you fancy staying the night once suitably stuffed, there’s a selection of comfy bedrooms (standard or deluxe), as well as the Crab Cottage next door. This has cosy weekend escape written all over it: done up in a mix of modern and traditional stylings, it has two plush double bedrooms and a fully-fitted kitchen. The clincher? You’re still entitled to the slap-up full English served in the main pub.
