SquareMeal Review of The Crab Shed Salcombe

Like its sibling in Bigbury, Salcombe’s oyster shed reels in the punters, and it’s easy to understand why. The clean-cut, no-frills dining room is done out in a mildly nautical manner, while tables on the deck area overlooking the creek are a top bag, particularly when the tide’s high. There’s no arguing with the freshness of the catch, and crowds are lured by the prospect of oysters every which way; whole crabs and lobsters served with nothing more than Marie Rose sauce, bread and salad, or mussels in garlic, smoked bacon, vermouth and cream. Our top pick? A moreish seafood bisque.
