Took my wife here over her birthday weekend and surprised her by meeting her friend there. Have to say that once again the staff (Especially Anna and Katie) were very friendly and efficient, the food was very good and room 6 was great, room 7 was fantastic!

We have dined here many times over the years when visiting Cromer. I have to say that it knocks spots off all other restaurants in the area in my opinion, even No1.
