This rustic little eatery doesn’t just stick to the adage of serving fresh shellfish straight from the boat, it goes one step further by having just three simple local seafood dishes on the menu – Bryher crab, mussels and scallops. The only additions are wine, coffee, bread, fries, mixed salad, a cheese board and Eton mess.

Served informally in Portuguese cataplanas, it’s the sort of meal for which you need to put your apron on and be prepared to get messy.

The Crab Shack is closed for the 2018 season and set to reopen mid May 2019.
