Set on Brixham quayside in the open air beneath umbrellas, this is an ideal lunchtime spot on a warm day. The Seafood Salad platter is a good sized meal for 2 people, the fresh seafood includes all the seafood one could imagine, most of it caught fresh locally. As there were 3 of us we also had a crab salad... More

If you're looking for seafood and a cheeky vino then look no further. First class food and service in the sun.

Simply the best crab sandwiches in the county. Claws is one of the main reasons we go to Brixham and have often taken a 100 mile detour just to eat here and now there is a "Claws indoors" opposite if the weather is not good. Simply the best and really good prices.

We come to Brixham every October and visit Claws for a prawn cocktail lunch. Brilliant as ever this year. Lots of tasty prawns and sauce. Really good value. Only one very small criticism, please use butter rather than margarine? Everything else is great. Thanks CJ

Had the seafood platter, was by far the best I have ever tasted. Presentation was excellent, nothing could be faulted, the waitress waz very helpful and cheerful. The seafood platter is more than enough for one person at lunchtime, coming with bread and butter and a large bowl of salad.
