My partner and I ate here on a whim and were very impressed with our meals. We both had a starter and main meal and found them to be very tasty with very generous portions. The premises were clean and well kept and as it is not in the main pub it was a quieter atmosphere to eat.

We sat in the Courtyard and can recommend the crab cakes, were superb. Was very impressed that the outdoor area had umbrellas with heating lights you could control, although August was a autumn like day! Burgers children had were nice and service quick, staff polite and helpful.

We were pleased with the variety of the menu and the quality of the food in the Courtyard restaurant but above all such friendly service. It is so good to find a reasonably priced restaurant with good food which rises above so much generally on offer in a family seaside resort. We ate twice there in a week!

The hospitality displayed by all of the staff was above and beyond - they could not have been any better. We were warmly greeted and immediately informed there may be a delay in serving food (this delay was no more than most restaurants). The food was excellent and the dessert was out of this galaxy - Greg Wallace would have... More

We had an excellent lunch here today at The Courtyard on the last day of a little mini jaunt around the country. My wife and I both had the haddock chowder to start. It was delicious, full of flavour and with great texture. I had seafood linguine for my main course. It came out a little on the tepid side.... More

Went for Saturday lunch on a busy, summers day. First impressions were of a slightly daunting, 'boozer' but inside, the staff were all excellent and efficient. We were warned that it would be up to thirty minutes for lunch (understandable and acceptable) but it arrived much sooner, to everyone's delight. The manager was buzzing about, checking on the customers and... More

We visited here twice during our stay in Cromer, and had great experiences both times. The staff are a real credit to the business and both the girls serving worked together brilliantly (I didn't get their names but one had light blond hair pinned up and the other girl had darker blond hair in a bun) thanks for a great...

We visited the Wellington on the strength of the reviews on trip advisor, however we found both the food and the service average. We won't be going back as there is plenty of other places to try in Cromer!!

Food was fantastic, prices were reasonable but something wasn't quite right. The staff seemed more interested in their phones and each other, the music wasn't overalls suitable for the clientele and despite a nice setting, there was no real atmosphere.

We are so glad you enjoyed your meal with us! I would like to point out that the staff were actually choosing music on an I- phone which we use behind the bar! Im sorry if they were not attentive enough for you, but have to say on a whole we have superb staff, maybe you caught them on an... More
