The Isle of Wight’s landmark seafood pub, The Crab and Lobster Inn offers a delicious menu, first class service and spectacular views out to sea. Family run over four generations, we pride ourselves on serving up the freshest catch, the warmest welcome and a great night's sleep, with five cosy en-suite rooms available upstairs. From the warm sun and salty breeze across our terrace in summer, to a roaring log fire in winter, The Crab and Lobster is a destination pub year round. Enjoy a well curated menu of seasonal dishes, from a seafood platter to a hearty roast and your favourite tipple from behind the bar. Find us in the pretty coastal village of Bembridge overlooking the bay. 


Tasty Food & Spectacular Views…

Choose from a seasonal menu of fresh seafood, locally reared meats and the best local produce, served up as beautifully refined dishes and pub classics. Not sure what to order? The Crab and Lobster is famous for its impressive hot and cold seafood platters, perfectly accompanied by a crisp white wine or the Island’s own Mermaid Gin and tonic against the backdrop of the sea. Our succulent steaks, pork chops and sausages come direct from Woodfords, the local village butcher, served up with a luxurious truffle mash, in a rich steak, red wine and thyme pie or with bubble and squeak. Don’t forget to check out our daily specials board and set menus.
