“The night after the 2013 floods”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Booked about 10 days ahead, last available room; in between came the 2013 tidal surge, and on arrival still a surging North Sea and high winds. Comfortable room with plenty of tea and coffee. Restaurant meal excellent, with tapas, local fish (Skate wings, Local smoked salmon, mussel butter); Very satisfying wine list, hugely English breakfasts and friendly and competent staff. Small Hotel with young, local and enthusiastic team and a chef with pleasant surprises up his sleeve.

We stayed a couple of nights midweek at this gastro pub just outside Cromer and were very glad we did. However there were a couple of minor points. The ceiling light was set to one side of the room which made the other side very dark. There was a dressing table but no light.

The room was large and clean. Beer selection was a limited to standard run of the mill lagers. Overall an enjoyable experience and we would probably return.

Stayed here for the weekend with my partner for some r & r, absolutely lovely. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. There is free wifi throughout the hotel, bar and restaurant. Staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The food from the breakfast to the dinner menu was superb, great quality and cooked to perfection, not a great selection if you are vegetarian. It's only a few yards from the beach and the coastal footpaths.

Very disappointed to find only 1 room booked instead of 2, despite booking a table for 4 in the restaurant for New Year 13/14.......,3 weeks after querying that no confirmation had been sent....all rooms then full so had to cancel.

James promised to refund £40 deposit but 5 weeks later still no refund.

They have lost the plot !

Food excellent, room contemporary, staff lovely!! What a find! Reluctant to give a good review in case it becomes so popular, we can't get in again! Small friendly, contemporary hotel, a few minutes walk from the beach, will take dogs, close to Cromer and several popular tourist places. Just right for a few days away from it all!!

As my heading states, the food we had for Sunday lunch was very good, but the times between courses were very long, I am not sure if this was due to training of satff or lack of staff, for Saturday and Sunday you really do need plenty of staff, the owner may want to take note and although I would say not fantastic value for money, a bit on the pricey side for Norfolk, this review could have really been four or even five stars if the service had been that much better.
For a family with children, waiting this long would be a real challenge.
We would attend again, but the speed of service really needs to improve.

This was our third visit to The White Horse in Overstrand, and it did not disappoint. We love having a room above a bar and restaurant, where we can stay with our dog and walk along the beach to Cromer, or visit one of the other beaches along this lovely part of the country. We dined in the bar so that we could be with our dog, and the food was excellent. My only two points for improvement would be the cleanliness of the room (especially our bathroom) and the slow food service in the bar on Saturday night - but these points don't take away from another great stay.
