Cromer Crab

No visit to North Norfolk would be complete without some delicious Cromer crab, the true taste of the sea.

"The best thing I have eaten this year is Cromer crab in Norfolk. We all talk about fresh food but when the journey from boat, to boiling water, to mouth is so short you really can tell the difference."
Nadiya Hussain (Winner of GBBO & Food Writer), The Guardian, 2007.

We get our crabs direct from JJ & CAS Davies, the nationally renowned fishmongers who have been in Cromer for generations. They're literally around the corner from us and fish with their own boat, so the crabs we serve simply could not be fresher. But that also means that if the weather's been bad, there's no crab to be had - sorry!


We believe Cromer Crab is best served fresh and simple. Enjoy one of our ever-popular crab salads with new potatoes, coleslaw and a baguette Alternatively, tuck into a crusty baguette, sandwich or hearty baked potato filled with Crab Mayonnaise.

If you're planning to drop in and already know you want crab, feel free to call ahead and reserve your crab to avoid disappointment.
