We’re world-famous for our Cromer Crab – a delicious, sweet, tender seafood served in sandwiches, salads or simply dressed, you can’t leave for home without sampling it.
That aside, Cromer, Sheringham and North Norfolk has a rich restaurant, fine dining and food scene. From the very best in British pub food, fish & chips soaked in vinegar and served straight from the newspaper to Michelin starred chefs – there is something for everyone!
If you’re not looking to wander too far, don’t forget that Forester’s Clubhouse is onsite and our sister hotel’s restaurant Repton’s Restaurant is just a short walk away. So if you’re looking for award-winning breakfasts, light lunches, afternoon tea on the lawn to Sunday Roasts, children’s favourites and pub classics – just ask one of our team for further details.
Below is a handful of our other top spots:
Rocket House Café Cromer – Located right on the beach, with a balcony overlooking the stunning coast, this is a personal favourite with us for a leisurely lunch. With a wide range of sandwiches, baguettes, burgers, hog roast and a great children’s menu, this bright beachside café also exhibits works from local artists.
No.1 Cromer – Renowned chef Galton Blackiston, owner and chef at Michelin starred Morston Hall, has opened a chip shop with a difference. Locally sourced produce is at the heart of the menu, with all potatoes grown on their own farm. Sample the delicious crab cakes (Cromer of course!) or mushy pea fritters. Children will love it too – their meals are served in a bucket & spade.
Ice Cromer – Serving up no fewer than 33 flavours of ice cream. Also owned by Galton Blackiston, it’s the only place you’ll find Norfolk Farmhouse Ice Cream in the town. Scrumptious!
The Red Lion – Overlooking Cromer Pier, this 200 year old hotel with its wood panelling and log fires is a lovely spot to enjoy a pub meal beside the sea. Serving an impressive range of Suffolk and Norfolk real ales at the bar, delicious Norfolk Fayre includes Crab (of course!), venison, Morston Mussels, seasonal salads and a seafood platter for two.
Morston Hall – A little drive away, but for a special occasion, Morston Hall offers one of the finest food experiences in Norfolk. Two miles from Blakeney, it boasts three red rosettes and a Michelin star. Norfolk fine dining at its best.
Marmalade’s Bistro – If you’re looking to enjoy a meal in Sheringham with outstanding service, you can’t go far wrong with a visit to husband and wife run Marmalade’s. A charming restaurant serving locally sourced produce, and homemade dishes, it’s built up a strong customer base with locals and visitors alike. Open for lunch (most days) and evening meals, booking is advised.
