The Crabshell Inn is uniquely situated with a waterside location in Kingsbridge Devon. South facing aspect & glorious estuary views, plenty of seating inside & out creating the ideal spot to spend time enjoying the well prepared & presented food & drink. Watch the boats, stand up paddlers & the delighted smiles of children as they crab along the embankment, a truly family friendly destination. The owner, Simon Harrow brings a genuine passion for this privileged location, a love for food, ales & wine & a commitment to providing unrivalled customer service & satisfaction! The inn has ample car parking & is a five min. stroll from Kingsbridge town centre or a 30 min. boat trip from Salcombe.
The menu is well thought through with a local bias, specialising in seafood, but with choices to suit all tastes including the renowned sour dough pizzas. Always at the heart of the community, affectionately known as The Crabbie, a genuinely welcoming place to enjoy great times all year round

    I had the Bouillabaisse which was amazing could have done with more bread to accompany it though. My husband had fish and chips but found the portion of fish rather small for the price. Mussels were deemed excellent by my daughter in law. Children were very happy with their meals. Shame the weather wasn't good enough to have the doors open onto the terrace. Service was pretty good and friendly.

    The food was good and it was a repeat visit because we had enjoyed it before but the service was terrible. The waitress was very rude and when we challenged her about it she did not apologise but made us feel awkward and the evening was soured. We will not go back

    I ate here on Sunday lunch with my boyfriend as our valentines meal out! The view was gorgeous and the food stunning, even though there was a big party in the ambience was great and all the waiting staff and front of house were so friendly we felt very at ease and relaxed! We will definitely be returning. 😀

    Our pizza was disappointing. The vegetables that were meant to be on the top weren’t recognisable as such.

    I'm lucky enough to live locally, so eat at the Crabshell often. The view over the Creek is lovely, and sitting outside in the summer is a real pleasure. Ambience is relaxed and friendly, food is great.

    I don't know why the booking form asked if it was a special occasion because I put it was a Birthday Celebration and no mention or acknowledgement of that took place
