The food, ambience and service were good, but we were amazed when the waitress said that the Christmas Special Menu that was on the table was not available on Sundays. Nowhere on the Christmas Menu did it say that it was not available on Sundays. We were informed that we could order the same food on the a-la-carte menu (at... More

Very enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere and a tasty pub lunch with generous portions. Staff were attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Would like to visit again in the summer rather than November as I suspect an afternoon in the garden with wine would be an afternoon well spent!

Whenever I eat at this country pub I come away smiling. The food is lovely and never fails to please. Visited on Saturday for lunch and had the most delicious roast beef and emental cheese sandwich.

Wasn't that struck with this place, I think they are trying to be a bit clever with the menu, overthinking things when they could be a bit simpler, I had the chicken breast described with a salad, their version of a salad was hot and brown, not very well explained in the menu or by the server as I asked...

My wife and I have had lunch here every Autumn for the past four years, while visiting family in the area. The food has been consistently excellent, and the beer and service as well. Many so-called gastropubs could learn from this place. The food is worthy of a Michelin star in my view, and the Purity Pure Ubu real ale... More

Delightful old world pub. We had 3 courses and each one was excellent. The waitress was very helpful and friendly and the food arrived quickly. We sat on wicker chairs with faux sheepskin throws to sit on. Very unusual. Will certainly go again.

Dylan our maitre'd and Holly who served us, made our evening The food was absolutely wonderful, and we had tuna tataki, and a lobster bisque to start with a burger and red mullet for main, but the attentive staff from start to finish just brought the Crabmill alive. Top, top, top marks.

Thank Jem J

This charming traditional country pub and restaurant has an unmistakable warmth about it, as seen in the furnishings and the menu. The atmosphere is friendly and informal, while the overall impression is of a pub which is comfortable, light and open. The lounge area has sumptuous tub chairs clustered in conversational groups and among the interestingly themed rooms is the New “Chocolate Rude room” with slightly risqué caricature pictures. Each room has its own individual appeal and any can be reserved for private diners. We are in our tenth year and to celebrate, come and see our refurbished al fresco dining area!The Crabmill is Good Pub Guide Approved and has won awards for food and wine. The Crabmill has also been selected for inclusion in the UK’s top 50 Gastro pubs with The Independent.
