We ate in the restaurant prior to the show and received 10% off the total bill with our show tickets. The menu is quite limited (maybe because it's out of season), however the meal was very nice and reasonably priced with lovely views across the bay. The bar at the end of the pier is quite pricey.

Whenever we come to Cromer I like to have a walk along the pier. At the top a RNLI Lifeboat is positioned so tourists, can get a better look at what's on the boat, complete with local history. Good for families with young children as they could go crabbing off the side of the pier.

Saw the tribute band Think Floyd here on a blustery March night. Through the wind and the rain and the sea spray splashing over onto the boardwalk, there was a beacon of light at the end of the pier. The bar and theatre. Didn't have a drink but went straight into the theatre and found our seats for the concert.... More

Visited the Pier in March on a beautifully sunny spring day, though the wind was keen. The Pier, like the area it is in, is clearly being showered with not inexpensive tlc that is resulting in a delightfully presented, traditional sea side staple. Great for a stroll, angling, a snack or even the much anticipated end of Pier show it... More
