Crabshell Inn


The Crabshell Inn, Kingsbridge’s only waterside restaurant and bar and the perfect place to spend time, from sun up to sun down throughout the year - with a genuine and charming welcome guaranteed and a relaxed contemporary ambience. Loved by locals and visitors to the area alike.

A truly family friendly destination and the perfect spot to watch all the bustle of the boats on the water, whilst enjoying the inspired local and seasonal menu created by head chef Gareth Head and the kitchen team. Or fresh, stylish salad choices from the Zest Deli - perfect for sunny days and picnics too.

The owner, Simon Harrow, brings a genuine passion for this privileged location, a love for food, ales and wine along with a commitment to providing unrivalled customer service and satisfaction. With ample car parking and a mere five minute stroll from Kingsbridge town centre or 30 minute boat trip from Salcombe, you can arrive any way that suits your mood or mode of transport…

From Kingsbridge, take the clearly signed road towards Dartmouth (A379) with the Estuary on your right for about 600 yards. The Crabshell Inn is past the first group of buildings you'll come to on your right. By the Crabshell sign, turn right into the pub's (free) quayside car park.
