Interesting beers on Norfolk's conservation coastline
At a glance
Open all year
A firm fixture of the charming Victorian resort of Cromer; guests can gaze through the inn's front windows directly over the fine beach to the sturdy pier. Fishing boats drawn up on the shingle bank may provide the wherewithal for the pub's renowned seafood dishes – try the fish chowder, Norfolk ale battered cod or Cromer crab – whilst sharing platters overflow with produce from Norfolk's generous inland larder. The playful menu has suggestions for wines to accompany dishes, whilst beer-lovers will delight at a choice that includes cutting edge local breweries like Wolf and Cromer's own Poppyland. Some of the bedrooms have sea views.
