This little cafe is in fact in the car park of the RNLI station at Selsey. It is run by the wives of the fisherman who go out overnight and return with the catch from which the lobster, crabs and prawns are selected so it does not come much fresher than this. Obviously if the catch is poor then less will be available for the cafe to sell. They also buy in some other items from either Portsmouth or Billingsgate to ensure a wider range of seafood. You can have a sandwich, etc. or various selections of seafood at very reasonable prices. They can do them in a box so you can take them home or walk 50 metres to the seafront and sit on one of the many benches there by the RNLI boat. They only have 3-4 tables outside their serving hut so seating is quite limited although people don’t stay that long. Also try the local ice cream from a dairy just a few miles up the road, it is also delicious. Teas, coffees and other drinks are available. We drove some 50 miles just to try it and we weren’t disappointed. Just be aware that they are only open Wed - Sun, 10.30- 14.30 and likely to be closed Dec & Jan. Might be worth phoning them if you are uncertain whether they are open as Selsey is a little remote (Chichester 8 miles). The good news is that Bus 51 from Chichester stops just outside the RNLI building.
