Good health and safety measures in place in relation to Covid-19, with full table screening etc. As a party of four we all very much enjoyed our various dishes, which were deliciously fresh and tasty. I did not give five stars for value for money only because the trifle dessert, nice as it was, seemed very over-priced. Overall, however, a lovely lunch.

Wells Crab House is the most Covid safe restaurant I have visited. The famous crab platter is huge and amazing, but try to make room for the starters - the Squid beignets with Sicilian lemon pesto is worth the visit alone. The staff are all friendly and welcoming, the food is locally sourced, but book early!

A fantastic experience & one Sarah & I will repeat the next time we are in North Norfolk. To put into context: menu good choice, wine list comprehensive & majority by the glass, we came for the crab/lobster main which was excellent, the service attentive/knowledgeable together with extensive & imaginative[traffic light system to go to the loo]. We felt safe. Thank you WCH

Wonderful food, wonderful service. Covid 19 measures very strictly enforced which is reassuring however it does have an obvious impact on the ambience. No criticism of the team at the restaurant however.

On arrival I was really impressed by the lengths that the staff at The Wells Crab House have gone to with their safety measures to protect against Covid. Better than I have seen anywhere else. The food was excellent throughout but special mention for the Swordfish with Honey Garlic and Grapefruit which was absolutely superb.

Great food and equally great service. 3 star atmosphere solely due to the very necessary & professional Covid precautions. We all know they don't add to the vibe. We will be back.....
