The new addition is based at 18 Vinicombe Street, in the old garage building.

Speaking earlier this year about what the new restaurant will offer, manager Lily Brown, said: “It’s going to be much bigger, over 100 covers, so that’s quite a big step for us.

“We’re going to very much take the same core values and menu from Crabshakk as we want people to come in and feel like it’s familiar.

“The menu will have all kinds of Crabshakk classics on there but we will be scaling up, so there will be a few changes in the menu.

“We’ll also going to focus more on the drinks side of things, and offer an extensive wine list and cocktails. We really want it to be a space where people can come and enjoy a lovely bottle of wine or cocktails and end up staying for a while and getting some oysters or something from the new evening snacks offering.

“The kitchen is much bigger so it will be really interesting to see how we develop in this new space.”
