The Crabshell Inn is gloriously situated on the quayside, and with its south westerly aspect basks in the sun all day. Our menu is full of local favourites with plenty of seafood, as you’d expect, daily changing specials, the locally renowned pizzas and a fantastic array of salads in the Zest Deli.

Family friendly

Watch the to and fro of estuary life, whilst taking time to enjoy the well-prepared and full of flavour choices on our menu.

Life & good times

That is our motto – to enjoy the joys of Devon and welcome you to our humble place on the quay, where you will find the atmosphere relaxed and the team waiting to welcome you.

About Us

Keeping it Crabby

We are a truly family friendly destination and the perfect spot to watch all the bustle of the boats on the water… with plenty of seating inside and out – creating the ideal spot to spend time enjoying all that’s on offer at the South Hams’ most happening location.


Joyous, indulgent, freshly prepared fine food that loves to be enjoyed with friends and family – that’s our philosophy… breakfast, lunch, dinner and take-aways from Zest, treats for the tastebuds.


Setting the style for informal and exquisitely created salads, interesting nibbles and fresh breads, Zest is the go-to place in town to take it easy, chill out over lovely food and, if you’re off to the beaches or anywhere else, we can box up a picnic for you to enjoy en plein air!


Looking for the perfect location for a staycation? Then may we humbly recommend our all-new super stylish apartment above the Crabby.
