Yarmouth surprisingly doesn't actually have a fish and chip shop but the Blue Crab will do a take away option for you if you are prepared to wait - the reason for the wait is the food is cooked to order and is therefore completely fresh.

I ordered one fish and chips and one fish cake and chips for lunch but while I was waiting my other half arrived with our dog. As the owner said our dog was welcome we decided to switch to eating in and they quickly adapated our meal for us.

The food was really good quality and the atmosphere light and welcoming. We have already recommended the Blue Crab to others and will be going back for a another meal sometime soon.

On Sunday it was the Old Gaffers festival in Yarmouth very busy, four of us found the Blue Crab off the High street and they manage to fit us in for lunch. It was super, beautifully cooked fish large portions and fresh salad. Staff great even though they were so busy nothing was so much trouble for them. Would certainly go again.

Visited this restaurant on a Sunday evening with family and wasn't disappointed. Decor maybe a bit subdued but all our fish was fresh, cooked well, and extremely tasty. Staff were polite and friendly. would visit again when staying nearby.

Total rip off.... went there after seeing a friend enjoying a takeaway... ordered a large cod and chips. For £9.. had to wait twenty minutes before the takeaway was wrapped and ready.... what a rip off
... !!!!!! ..... the portion eventually was wrapped and it was a fish smaller than the small cod our friend bought minutes before... tiny little last scrap of the day fish covered in a huge portion of soggy chips..... the large portion of chips giving the appearance of a big fish.... dont go here ....
