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.

All our tables are ‘first come first served’ – with plenty of space outside and inside for everyone… please note that we will not be taking any reservations for dining from now until the end of August, inclusive.


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 and chill out over lovely food.


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