The Crab Shed, Salcombe, Devon
What would you expect to find in a restaurant right on the quayside in Salcombe? Seafood, of course, and The Crab Shed is riding high on its reputation for serving the freshest and the finest. Their speciality is 100% hand picked local crab meat, landed just outside the door, to eat in or to collect and take back to your holiday house.
Inside is vibrant and relaxed, infused with coastal light that adds to the ambience; the views are of the calm waters of the Kingsbridge estuary and the rolling hills of the South Hams. It’s a good place to be. The menu isn’t enormous, which is testament to how fresh the food is; go along for Whole Salcombe Cracked Crab, served with fries and bread, hot or cold, with garlic butter. What a treat! Tuck into a Fruits de Mer sharing board for two – as well as the whole Salcombe crab you get lobster, mussels, clams, scallops and prawns, served warm with fries, dips and bread. There’s Fish and chips with fresh day boat fish, Crab Bouillabaisse, and a very tempting Salcombe Crab and prawn sandwich. If it’s warm, eat outside on the deck and savour every mouthful as you sit there watching the boats and the dinghies sailing by.
