Description: Voted "Best Restaurant 2015" by Food & Drink Devon. The Crab Shed is a new waterside seafood restaurant near The Fish Quay in the heart of Salcombe, Devon. Our restaurant sits alongside our very own Crab Factory where we produce 100% hand-picked crab meat, crab cakes and crab stock for our bisque and sauces. All our fish arrives daily from sustainable stocks from "Day Boats" that land to local Fish Markets, mainly Plymouth and Salcombe.

The shed, is well named, a little cold in the winter,to sit outside in the summmer would much better. They could do a lot more with the inside.
The food was really good, not a lot there if you don’t lick fish,the few diners I talked to, all said there meal was superb.I chose the bouillabaisse, and it was Superb. Also the service was very friendly,and polite.

Visited Salcombe as we do every year, what a gem. As the Galley has now closed we were looking for a new special eatery and i think we have definitely found it. we were staying in Fore street so not too far to walk, we were greeted and shown to a very nice table at the back, choice of food wasn't huge but had some nice choices, especially on the specials board,starters were very nice, for the main meal i opted for the lobster and my wife went for the crab linguine, both were superb, service was good as was the atmosphere and it didn't cost a fortune, i dont think i can recommend this restaurant enough, so if you visit Salcome please give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

Ate here on an evening, I had the two courses for 18 which was good value and enjoyable, our son had fish n chips,he said they were much better than those in a pub in the town he had earlier in week. Husband had crab salad which came served without bread, surprising considering the £17 price, but some was provided on request. My Dessert of plum and apple tart was delicious.
