The Kings Head pub in Cromer is a fantastic little seaside pub just a stone’s throw from the beach in this popular Norfolk holiday destination. The building itself is over 200 years old and has recently been refurbished, with the introduction of a brand new patio area for our guests to enjoy drinking and dining outside, while retaining the pub’s traditional features and character. We serve a wide range of lagers, ales and ciders, as well as wines, spirits and soft drinks and tasty pub food is served daily from 12 noon until 9pm, including our epic Sunday roast. On Friday and Saturday evenings we host live music and entertainment too, so come along and join in the fun!

Food was excellent however NYE music was extremely loud and started just when we had our meal 7.30. We had been told band would not start until 9pm. Spoilt the evening for us.

We were staying in Cromer for Christmas and had Christmas Day Dinner at the Kings Head. The service was excellent and friendly, the food was fantastic and plentiful, it was like an episode of Man vs Food. The pub was clean and covid safe. We enjoyed our dinner and the locals were friendly. We returned before we left for a couple of drinks having enjoy our dinner there. We will return and would recommend to friends and family.

We arrived early and the staff were happy to arrange for us to eat at that time instead of waiting. We enjoyed the 2 course Christmas Menu and the food was great. Steaks cooked exactly as we'd asked.

We regularly go in season but this is our first out of season visit. Staff are lovely, food is brilliant, hot, plenty of it and served quickly.
We take our little dog with us and she’s always welcomed by staff and other customers.
Can’t wait to see you all again in the new year. X

We had a very pleasurable experience at the Kings Head. The staff were very friendly helpful and and welcoming. The food was very good with a good selection of vegan/vegetarian options. Particularly recommend the vegan cheesecake! We didn't have to wait very long for the food either.
We will certainly be visiting again.

We have never been here before
The bar service and ordering process was great
Good value food and served very quickly
The pub was extremely loud as there was a karaoke in the bar
Our main issue was the servers constantly asking if you had finished both drinks and food so much so that it became annoying
Reaching to take glasses and plates that were not finished with

The Kings Head is an old building with character in the old part of town. It can get busy and so it is worth booking. On the day we went, most of the customers were large groups and so we had a small table near the door. This didn't worry us as we were given prompt service and the food was good.

Booked a table for Sunday dinner, website said roast only. When we got there only 1 pork1 beef or turkey available. We were a party of 4 who all would have chosen beef. We were eating our food and waitress insisted on removing the cushions from the seats, we had to get up to do this and it did not rain. We were left sitting on Velcro which caught our clothes.
A coach pulled up in the lane right next to where we were eating and left it’s engine running, covering us in fumes, I asked a member of staff to speak to the driver which eventually they did.
No table condiments provided even though we asked for them.
