It was our Anniversary and so we had booked a holiday away on the Norfolk coast. My husband LOVES seafood and Wells Crab House had a good reputation that they certainly lived up to. We had a lovely card at our table wishing us a Happy Anniversary and a a very attentive waitress. Plus they had been mindful of my request for a private table and gave us a lovely window seat and did not seat anyone near us our whole lovely and delicious meal. The seafood was delicious. Would love to come again. It was a memorable occasion

Really lovely evening- everything was excellent apart from the lobster which was a little over cooked. I’ve had it before and it was fine so just a one off. It won’t put me off going back

Having had dinner at the Crab House earlier this year to celebrate our wedding anniversary, on a return visit to North Norfolk we decided to return to the Crab House. Please don’t change - the meal was as fabulous as ever!

What an amazing little restaurant! We ordered the muscles to share for starter followed by the smoked fish platter. The muscles were full of flavour and the smoked platter was incredible, there was so much fish we had to take some home with us. I also got to try eel for the 1st time and was pleasantly surprised, I wouldn't have even tried it were it not for the encouragement from the brilliant front of house staff. Unfortunately I didn't catch the name of our waitress but she was excellent, she went above and beyond and made time for everyone. Finally the price was very reasonable, i rate this according to how the husband feels when we pay for the meal and he wasn't too upset with the price which is unusual... I suppose being full and still taking home fish was a bonus in his eyes. I would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant when you venture to Wells!!!

Everything from booking, the ambiance , friendliness and knowledge of the staff , food choice, portions and presentation was excellent. Just one point of note desperate having an extensive Gin list, for me the choice of tonic of offer, one I have never heard of, did really spoil my Gin and Tonic as it tasted synthetic. You cannot beat normal traditional tonic , without advertising any brands. SSHHH Having said all that we will return. looking to what will be on the specials next time.

Beautiful lunch at Wells Crab House. Could not fault the service or the quality of the food we were served. A particular complement for the beautiful turbot, it was the perfect dish.
