CrabShack, Worthing

Get stuck into top seafood, from casual crispy squid to fish platters and chowders (plus cocktails and takeaway ice-cream) right opposite the beach

Weekend Escapes
Read our review of CrabShack, Worthing

Situated just opposite Worthing’s beach, close to the pier and theatre, this unpretentious family-run restaurant and bar serves up quality seafood on a wooden deck and in a cosy cabin-like interior.

Stop in for casual grazing on the likes of cockle popcorn, moules mariniere, crispy squid with garlic chips and creamy Sussex smokie with dunking ciabatta. Relax over dinner – perhaps dressed crab or the catch of the day, landed by a local fishing fleet, or a fish platter for two featuring South Downs-smoked salmon.

Pair your choice with a Sussex sparkling wine or a cocktail from the bar. You can even get a drink after the kitchen has closed.

Crabshack is off a coastal cycle path, so you can plan it as a reward when you’ve pedalled from Brighton or beyond. In winter, think chowder or fish stew and a trip to the retro cinema nearby.

Closed Mondays. Kitchen closed between 16.00 and 17.00
