Situated on the North Norfolk coast, The Grove offers the perfect setting for your ideal occasion, whether you’re arranging an exciting family occasion or a romantic getaway The Grove in Cromer has it all.
Award-winning fine dining in North Norfolk
We believe our two AA rosettes are a tribute to our commitment to serving seasonally inspired and locally sourced food, which is in abundance here in Norfolk. Dining at The Grove is an award winning experience that should not be missed.
Our strong belief in supporting local producers and showcasing local, seasonal flavours have helped place The Grove firmly in the spotlight as one of Norfolk’s most sought after dining experiences.
Much of the produce we bring to the plate can be found growing only hours before in The Grove’s very own fruit and vegetable gardens, glasshouse or poly-tunnel. Lovingly cared for by octogenarian and former owner, John Graveling and team. Featuring a seasonally inspired and locally sourced menu, we make good use of the abundance of delicious Norfolk ingredients to be found around us. We believe the quality of produce available to us in Norfolk is the finest in the country, which is why all of our meat and fish is sourced from local suppliers including Graves Butchers and Cromer’s mighty crab fishing fleet.
The Grove offers a choice of two restaurants for diners – the wood-panelled study and the original Georgian dining room. Both have their unique character and features but one thing that remains the same is the quality of the food and the service we provide – these award-winning qualities mean that we are fast becoming one of the top food and drink destinations not only in Cromer, but throughout Norfolk.
As owner, Richard Graveling, says: “As a small restaurant we have the luxury of being able to give each individual dish real care and attention, which is what our guests really appreciate”.
Our restaurant is open seven days a week, but closes for the first three weeks of January.
Dinner is served from 5pm, bookings online from 2pm till 4pm is for afternoon tea only.
