Crab Tavern - London Restaurant Bar Review

Crab Tavern - London Restaurant Bar Review

I have a bit of an obsession with seafood, to the point where I actually want to be buried at sea to be among the crab, mussels, and squid forever. So when I found out that the Crab Tavern might just have the best crab in town – hailing from...

Crab tavern was in a great location but I expected it to be a bit better based on what I've heard. I love seafood but found it somewhat average and quite pricey for what it was.

Can't recommend this place enough if you like seafood - the portions are big and the fish couldn't be fresher. The staff are super-friendly and it's also in a very convenient location.

Very tasty and fresh seafood - we tried squids, cold platter, sliders they were absolutely amazing, crab and waffle. Also very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Highly recommended place for visit with friends

The food here was absolutely incredible! Between 4 of us we ploughed our way through the tasting platters and sampled all the crab there was. Also spotted the soft shell crab burger coming out and was extremely jealous. I shall definitely be getting that next time. Service was impeccable and the atmosphere was perfect. Crab Tav is the one.

It was a good evening. The free food differed from advertised but we ordered extra food and it was delicious. Service could have been better but it didn't impact us too much; drinks were reasonably prices and as it was Wednesday, the venue was quite quiet which was suitable for us. Bathrooms are lovely but a light had gone in both the disabled toilet on the ground floor and one in the Ladies. It meant my colleague had to walk downstairs following a knee operation which is quite disappointing but luckily he didn't complain. I would return in the future.
