Our first visit to the Crab House, just 50 miles away, for dinner and the bottom line is if we could give the place 6 or even 10 stars, we would. The food was out of this world - the skate was just stunning. Perfectly...More

I travelled especially to Weymouth on a couple of occaisions especially to spend the night and eat at the "Crab House Cafe". Great setting, really good food and lovely staff. Looking forward to many nights (and crabs) in 2018.

Worth going slightly off the beaten track and, actually, enhanced by quieter location right next to the water. Great ambience, attentive staff and an interesting menu including a good range of oysters, fish, recipes and wines. Ambience enhanced by cooking in view of the restaurant.
