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.

The staff at the restaurant ensured that my husband's 60th birthday was celebrated in a special way. From the hand washing as we entered the restaurant, to the service at the table, we could not have wished for a more pleasant evening. The "big one" platter was superb, we only just managed to finish the meal! Thank you.

The restaurant had adjusted to working during the current coronavirus situation very well. They had provided hand washing facilities at the entrance and reduced the number of tables so that they were at least 2m apart. The meal was excellent and the staff very efficient and friendly. We will certainly return when we are next in the area.

We had a a very enjoyable meal on Friday evening, We had an early sitting of 6:30pm. We were told to vacant the table by 8pm. It did seem a little rushed, however after finishing our main course we were told that the nest booking had cancelled and we were told to stay as long as we liked. The staff were very friendly, the food delicious and the atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

Thank you for a wonderful birthday treat! Four of us enjoyed everything we ate. I haven’t eaten oysters for years and those served at the crab house were perfect! I also particularly enjoyed a delicious crab curry. Staff were attentive and Knowledgable and next time we visit Wells we’ll be sure to book.

This is our favourite restaurant with a menu you could never get tired of as continually creative, original and innovative. Service is, as always, spot on.

Loved the whole experience , the only thing we weren't keen on was the decision to play music in the restaurant! Everything else was great though, food was delicious and staff were friendly, attentive and amazing service! Thank you!

During a recent holiday in North Norfolk we visited the Wells Crab House. We had tried to book last year and were unable to as they were fully booked. So very happy we could visit this time. It was well worth the wait. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Food was fabulous. I had Thai Crab curry and my husband had Lemon Sole. Food was so good we went back for a second visit the next night. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The whole experience: staff, food, and atmosphere made it thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you.

Fantastic food and service with knowledgeable staff. Best seafood platter I’ve ever had, too much for one person though, definitely a sharing meal for two. Will be back for sure.

This was our first visit to Norfolk and the Wells Crab House was recommended to us. It totally lived up to expectations, of course I had the local Dressed crab which was excellent and my partner had the Red mullet fillets in an Asian Broth which he exclaimed was lovely. There was also a good selection of reasonable priced wines to wash it all down with. Service was quick and smiley!

This is the second time I’ve been to the crab house and have thoroughly enjoyed it both times. We were a table with quite a few food requirements and they were spot on every time, with no fuss and great service and of course wonderful food. Highly recommend.

The Wells Crab House is in my opinion the best seafood restaurant on the Norfolk Coast, the Lobster Thermidor is to die for, service is excellent I would recommend this restaurant to be tried do that you can make your own mind up.

Staff are a bit sarcastic, but it does depend who you are. Booked a table for two through the website, rang up four days before to change it to three people which was completely fine. When we arrived the table hadn’t been changed to a three a bit of tutting went on and the staff wanted to know who I spoke to so they could reprimand the member of staff. It made us feel a little awkward . Food was nice and plenty to choose from.
