The Crab & Lobster

Mill Lane, SIDLESHAM, PO20 7NB

2 rosettes

The whitewashed 17th-century pub has become an upscale restaurant with rooms, and is looking spruce from top to bottom. On the edge of the Pagham Harbour nature reserve, it offers a stylish restaurant that aims to impress with ambitious, upscale modern British food that looks good on the plate and delivers bang-on flavours. Poached and deep-fried duck egg with black pudding and pea purée is a classy opener. Main courses run to well-timed, crisp-skinned halibut with braised salsify, button onions, girolles and pancetta in an intense red wine fish jus. Finish with gingery treacle tart and clotted cream ice cream.
