“Oh dear, what has happened??!!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

I think that this fish bar has changed hands since we visited last year. We couldn't fault our meal last year, but my fiance and I both left our food and so did other diners we noticed. It appears that there are youngsters frying the fish and they were noisy and loud, which we found very offputting.

We won't be hurrying back!

“Soggy chips and greasy fish”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

I was told this was the best chippy around, so thought we'd give it a go. Not impressed - the chips were soggy and the fish greasy with a very 'dead' batter. Was expecting a lot better.

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We have used Mary Janes restaurant for the past 2 weeks ( and on previous occasions) and we have never had a bad meal.. The fish is very tasty ( and it does state on the menu that there maybe bones in it) and the curry sauce is too die for. The portions are big and the place is clean and friendly staff. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone and will definitely be eating there in the near future.

“Fish and chips”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We are on holiday in Norfolk and went to Cromer for the day, after having a nice morning along the sea front we then went on a shopping expedition, feeling very hungry we went to Mary Janes fish and chip restaurant, what a huge disappointment, the service was good and pleasant but the fish was a big big let down , we had cod minus skin but all four of us had lots of bones in it which spoilt our meal completely we had to leave it

“Very Disappointed”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Used to visit this fish and chip restaurant whenever the family were in Cromer. This last visit was disappointing to say the least particularly when we were expecting the excellent service that we had previously had. Attitudes were poor, food was over greasy, and although the restaurant was not busy it was still overcrowded.
