The Crab & Winkle Restaurant

The Crab & Winkle Restaurant


0.5 miles
South Quay, The Harbour, Whitstable, CT5 1AB
Based at Whitstable's historic harbour, The Crab & Winkle is a must for all seafood lovers. Born out of the famous Whitstable Fish Market, this acclaimed establishment has now introduced the Wee Willie Winkle Kitchen, which offers delicious harbour side eating including fish and chips (open weekends from November until April, and all week in summer).

Awarded an AA rosette for 2011-2012, the restaurant effortlessly retains its fabulous reputation. Overlooking a working harbour, diners enjoy beautiful panoramic sea views and outstanding sunsets - many guests have reportedly claimed they have rarely seen such magnificent sights.

As it is placed right on top of the fish market, the restaurant is supplied with an incredible range of fresh ingredients. For starters choose from a wealth of delicacies, served according to your preference. Pick half a dozen oysters, battered, grilled or au natural - the choice is yours. Or dive into the fish market platter, piled high with oysters, winkles, cockles, whelks, prawns and hot smoked salmon (also served as a main course). Mouth-watering mains include everything from Dover sole and whole-baked bream, to smoked haddock with poached eggs and beer-battered fish and chips.

For dessert, choose from a selection of homemade desserts as well as a cheeseboard - which includes locally made Ashmore and baby Stilton. Like every offering here, this is simply the best any food-lover could ask for.
