All covid precautions were adhered to and comprehensive which were reassuring but as expected did alter the atmosphere. Fabulous selection of local gin and mixers. Helpful and friendly staff.

Same friendly welcome and same faultless service and food. Layout slightly different of course, but does not detract from a great meal in the loveliest of restaurants. If you are thinking of going my advice would be not to hesitate, you will be looked after superbly by Kelly and her team.

A really enjoyable lunch ,nothing too much trouble,this was our 1st time out for a meal after lockdown. The Crab House has taken a lot of trouble to keep social distancing in the restaurant ,without loss of the atmosphere that has always been there.Menu as good as before ,will definitely be going back .

Absolutely Fabulous! The staff are fantastic and this restaurant gets 6 stars for their approach to COVID. Best food we have had all holiday, in fact one of the best fish platters my husband and I have and we have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world!! Really an exciting find! Will definitely come back to Norfolk just to eat here again!

What a pleasure to be back at the much missed Crab House once it reopened after lockdown. Our food was excellent as always. Kelly and her front of house team were welcoming, making the experience complete.

One of the very best restaurants in North Norfolk, combining friendly attentive service with excellent food and a really pleasant atmosphere. Covid precautions were present and sensible without being ludicrously obtrusive. 100% recommended.

Excellent food, the best Lobster I've had in years. Wine choices were perfect. Only complaint, my Partner's Kimchi was volcanic with chilli and if eaten would have ruined the fantastic Swordfish. Weird toilet system. Our first restaurant visit since February gave us everything we wanted

We went on the first night of opening after Covid, and they were very efficient and took time to explain the systems they had in place. Food and service were excellent.

We always adore going to The Crab House, but were a bit worried about social distance when we went on the re-opening night. However, it was brilliantly organised and we felt very safe & relaxed. The new arrangement s did not dent the fabulous welcoming atmosphere, & staff, gins and food were top notch as ever. Couldn’t recommend more highly!

This was our first visit to Wells Crab House and from our experience, we will certainly be making return visits from our home in Suffolk! Particularly impressed by the prevalence of local supplies (the Norfolk Whinn Hill Cider was a firm favourite!). Both food and service was excellent ... fantastic staff. Thank you for making our weekend in Wells so special.
