covid-19 closure

With a heavy heart, we've shut the doors of our lovely and newly refurbished restaurant for the time being.

We'll continue to monitor the situation closely and hope to re-open just as soon as it is safe to do so for our customers and staff  - check back here and on Facebook for updated information.

In the meantime, thanks to all our customers for your support - take care of yourselves and your families and we look forward to brighter times in the future.

5 minutes with: Sous Chef Micha

We put 5 lockdown questions in 5 minutes to our Sous Chef Micha:

What is the first thing you will do once you are no longer in self isolation?

The first thing I will do is drive to my favourite beach for a lovely swim in the sea.

What is the thing you are most looking forward to on your return to working in the Crab Shed once we have re-opened?

I can’t wait to turn on the grill again and fill my days with what I am most passionate about fresh fish & seafood for everyone to enjoy.

What is your favourite fish to cook at home and what do you serve it with?

My favourite is sea bass, I simply pan fry the fillets to get a crispy skin, then add a little sea salt, butter and lemon juice. I serve it with fresh asparagus, buttered new potatoes and a lemon wedge, it is super easy and filled with flavours.

What activities are you doing to keep occupied during this lockdown period?

If I am not cooking or baking, I make use of my lovely garden. I also make sure to use the daily 1 hour exercise allowance to explore local walks to keep me fit and sane.

Can you suggest a few tips for a BBQ during this warm, sunny spring weather?

No matter what meats or fish are on offer I always make room on the BBQ for a few sliced onions, mushrooms and chopped potatoes. I cook these all spread out on some foil with lots of whole garlic gloves, fresh herbs and some butter - delicious!
