The Erpingham Arms was recommended to us by the owner of our holiday accommodation nearby and well worth a visit it was too. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the manager who was very keen that we relax and chill out when it looked like three of our party might not make the cut off time for ordering... More

It's a large place - more like a motel feel which is odd for a village pub but not unpleasant of itself. Inside it has that motel feel but outside there is a nice garden. The guy behind the bar was really friendly - possibly a bit over the top with the constant quips - but quite genuine. The menu... More

I returned and as promised there is a new menu and it is better. The Manager re the comment from "Glutenfreefan" is hands on and does serve everyone himself from the kitchen as your comment " that he came out of the kitchen" indicated. However, as a Cuban he perhaps does not fully understand "gluten free" Yes of course restaurants... More

My husband always chooses fish and he said the batter was excellent and fish very fresh tasting again served with plenty of chips.... More

Having been to The Erpingham a few times we headed back there to see how the new chef was getting on. Really love the new menus! Had a lovely Chicken Caesar salad and my husband had a burger. Both served really promptly and were delicious. Looking forward to taking our friends next week.

We were travelling back from Cromer and wanted a dog friendly family pub/restaurant with real ales, and Erpingham arms seemed to fit the bill. As I wandered to the bar I saw food being served and it looked delicious. I waited at the bar some time and nobody was about at first but then a more noticeable large group arrived... More

While camping in the area, we went to the Erpingham Arms for a drink, and after looking at the menu decided to book a table for the following evening to end our holiday. So glad we did. We had the sharing starters, which were a bit like tapas- you could pick serval for a set price. The tai crab fish... More

We happened on the Erpingham Arms by accident on the way out of Cromer. It was very quiet, but the food was lovely and reasonably priced, the service was great and the kids had the run of the play area. Would definately recommend rather than fighting your way into Cromer!!

Being local to this pub, you would think it would be our most frequently visited, however since its refurbishment a few years ago, we have never been made to feel welcome, though we have tried on more than one occasion, even one year on Christmas Day and yet no one could even wish us a happy Christmas, our previous last...
