“A Great Lunch, with a wonderful view, pity about the flies!”

We were on a visit to Polzeath, and just happened to notice the sign for this place. It was really good, the food superb, the drinks interesting, and the service really good.
The only reason that we did not award 5 stars, was the number of flies on the inside of the windows.

The Cracking Crab is a vibrant, jolly beach bar and restaurant that has a great view of the surfers on Polzeith beach below. Lunch was tasty and very reasonable. My husband's whole dressed crab was a sight to behold! The children's menu is very good indeed and certainly not overpriced. There is a grass area with tables and benches so there is plenty of space for kids and dogs to let off steam.

Came here for dinner twice in the week we were staying in polzeath. Absolutely love this place all the staff were very friendly and accommodating and couldn't do enough for us during our visit. Had the steak with blue cheese sauce which was delicious. Also a dog friendly restaurant and they had their own bowl of water and some biscuits on arrival. Will definitely be back next season

perched on the cliff top above Polzeith and accessed via the council car park (no discount for diners) It has a light and airy beach vibe. the food is seafood and very good the shrimp with chilly sauce is excelent and the crab lovely. the fact that the salad served with the crab is also excelent elevates the whole meal

add to this the fact that prices wont break the bank and it is well worth a visit

Lunch for a family of three with great views across the beach. The soup was really tasty and the sandwiches were really well filled. A little expensive but the food was good.
