Situated in the heart of the countryside between Newbury and Oxford the Crab is a peaceful haven for wonderful leisurely sumptuous seafood. The decor is appropriate with lobster pots and fishing nets and many unusual objet d'arts to catch the eye. The chef's were originally trained by Richard Corrigan and this definitley shows and were awarded with Best Seafood Resaurant in UK aqfter only being open for just over one year. Extensive range of seafood on the menu along with some beautifully cooked meat for the carnivores. Service is impeccable. Attention to detail is perfect and also excellent value for money. To top it all there are varoious themed bedrooms available, themed on famous places such as Treetops or Raffles and all with either extraordinary bathrooms or private hot tubs. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough.

The Restaurant was busy when we visited and we were seated upstairs. Excellent decor with ample space between tables. Roaring fire, which although gas was very welcoming. Service was outstanding with a close attention to detail. Attentive but not overbearing service. Excellent choice of bread. My wife had the lobster dish which was beautifully presented and a real depth of flavour. I had the lunch special of 2 courses and a half bottle of wine for approx £19. This was excellent value, the duck was beautifully cooked with a stunning sauce. The desserts were gorgeous and again beautifully presented. I cannot fault the meal for flavour or value and I will return. Next time I shall book early for a table in the conservatory area which looked lovely.
