My parents always buy their dressed crabs from the crab hut. They are the best I've had. Absolutely packed to the brim with nothing but fresh tasty meat. Can't wait for them to reopen to get the best crabs in town.

Good value seafood, crabs, shrimps etc from their own boats. Baguette with plenty of crab and salad £4.50. Will halve it if sharing. Tea/Coffee £1. We do not take a picnic if we know we are walking the coast near here.

Lucky, lucky, lucky - a bit late in the day but got the last 2 portions of crab, no baguettes left but had with salad and a tea. Really nice, tasty and fresh. Walked of to find a bench and had a lovely outdoor lunch....More

Best crayfish and mango baguette. A lovely hut which serves lovely baguettes and had a cup of tea in a proper mug. It's wonderful watching the tide come in, beautiful.

Buy the seafood boats or the crab baguette, eat at the harbour. It may be simple but it is delicious

Best ever seafood baguette and good value for money packed with cockles, muscles, prawns and crab. Only £5.50. Also had de-caf coffee for an unbelievable £1. It's a shame it closes at the end of October. I will definitely be calling again next spring.

Popped here for lunch on a very wet and windy day. Lovely sandwiches packed full of prawns. Followed by a tub of cockles. Have bought a dressed crab home for sandwiches tomorrow - can’t wait !
