We are so happy to welcome you back to Crabshakk!

Thank you so much for supporting us.

Extra measures continue in our little shakk to ensure the safety and comfort of all our lovely customers and staff.

These include:

- full tracing details of all guests

- abundant sanitising stations, spare masks for those without

- ramped up and recorded cleaning schedule

- QR code and laminated menus

- 15-minute turnaround between tables to ensure thorough cleaning

- half capacity internal bookings

- clear screens separating bar guests

- improved air conditioning unit

- all tables comply with 1m social distancing

- strictly staggered and controlled guest arrival times

We ask that all customers adhere to our HOUSE RULES which will be in place during your visit. This includes complying with social distancing. We ask that all customers and staff wear facial coverings when in transit through the premises; masks need NOT be worn when at your table. We will have a supply of masks should you forget your own. We ask that you arrive promptly for your booking and respect the stricter need for a prompt leave-time we have been forced to impose; sadly we cannot offer an exception to the 1hr45 allocation.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SADLY WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT WALK-INS. All internal seats must be pre-booked. However, should we be blessed with a bit of sunshine, we have an extended outside area available for spontaneous indulgence!

Due to the latest government restrictions, we are sadly unable to accommodate bookings larger than 4 inside, 6 outside. Any size party may only comprise of *2 households* else we are liable. For the first few weeks, all guests are required to comply with the 8pm curfew and alcohol is only permitted outside. From May 17th, alcohol returns to all areas and the curfew extends to 10.30pm. We regret we cannot currently take bookings via phone, if you would like to chat you can send us an email to

Every seat is crucial in this recovery, so we hope you will understand that we have imposed a necessity for all bookings to provide bank details upon booking. No moneys will be taken upon booking. In the case of a no-show or a severely reduced party size, we will manually charge the holder a standard £20/head in compensation.

Most importantly, if you or anyone in your party displays any symptoms or suspected symptoms of Covid19, on the days leading up to or day of your booking, please, we ask you to remain at home and delay your visit to us in compliance with government guidelines.

Thank you so much! We can’t wait to see you!
