Local, Fresh & Delicious Seafood in Teignmouth, Devon

Welcome to the Crab Shack website.  At the Crab Shack we have first hand experience in seafood and have owned our own fishing boats for over 30 years.  Team this with our chef, Charlie Goddard, and our hero crabbing crew we bring only the finest catch to your plate. Located in Teignmouth in beautiful South Devon Seafood this way

Our Promise

  • Fresh from our own boats, delivered direct to your table

    Our boats, named 'La Vagabonde Des Mer' & 'The Royal Escape', fish off the fast tidal waters in the English channel. They are called a 'vivier boat' which is french for 'live holding tank'. The centre of our boats are full of water, enabling us to keep the crabs and lobsters alive.

  • Sustainable fishing methods are used

    Crab, Spider Crab and Lobster are not a precious stock species, therefore they’re not quotered like other fish stocks.

  • Our by-catch is released alive

    The process of catching the crabs is a very environmentally friendly procedure. We lay baited pots on the seabed not harming the corals or bed itself. We only select the best quality crab and lobster and return the remainder back to the sea alive.

Our Fishing Boats battle the waves ..

Our largest vivier crabber 'La Vagabonde des mer' lands its catch mainly in Cherbourg, France. She battles the waves to catch the finest and best quality crabs and lobsters .. The French adore seafood, therefore making us extremely busy all year round ! We would like to say a huge thank you to our hero crabbing crew for providing us with the best catch as always and wish them happy and safe fishing during these winter months.
They are true men with a real passion and commitment to the job they do. Without them, the Crabshack would not exist, and we truly appreciate the daily battle they endure to put the food on our beautifully laid tables !
