Many congratulations to all the other winners  - without a doubt, we are so lucky to live in such a superb county as Devon which is filled with fabulous food and delicious drink.

We are absolutely thrilled to receive this recognition for all the hard work, dedication and enthusiasm of our wonderful Crab Shed team both in our factory and the restaurant at Crab Shed Salcombe.

We supplied our white hand picked crab meat for the pre-dinner canopes  - the head chef at the Crowne Plaza Plymouth where the dinner was held, created these lovely pastry tartlets filled with our delicious flaky crab meat topped with delicious Ebbtide ‘Seaweed Caviar’ for the drinks before the dinner. Even though we do say so ourselves, the canopes were really delicious and the Ebbtide ‘Seaweed Caviar’ was soooo nice and worked really well with our crab meat.

Thank you to the head chef, Ted,  at the Crowne Plaza for these delicious Crab Tartlet canopes

A big thanks also goes to our wonderful diners who come back to see us time and time again  - thank you ! We love receiving your feedback - here are just a few words from our diners.

"Great food - fresh & tasty. Amiable, helpful staff and a relaxed feel in an intimate setting. Feels full of heart from the chefs in the kitchen to the food on the plate."

"We were at Scott’s of Mayfair recently. We ate a very similar sharing platter. The price is irrelevant as the quality of the two dining experiences were similar. However, the food at the Crab Shed was without doubt far superior. The scallops and lobster were absolutely to die for. The service was friendly and exceptional. We love this restaurant and will continue to dine there."

"Very enjoyable atmosphere with great seafood and fish and very good service. Would definitely recommend but don't tell the world!"
