Eat & Drink – Evening Restaurant closed in 2021

A Taste of Norfolk: Dining in Cromer

Due to COVID-19 and government restrictions the hotel restaurant is currently closed until further notice for evening meals.

The Virginia Court Hotel has created The Dining Room restaurant in Cromer which offers ‘A Taste of Norfolk’, with local farm and sea produce in both our evening and breakfast menus.

Our Cromer restaurant serves evening meals between 6.00pm and 8.30pm and is open to residents and non residents who want to enjoy eating out in Cromer in a warm friendly bistro style restaurant. Depending on the time of year and numbers, we use the mirrored dining room or the main dining room. Either way you’ll enjoy great food and friendly professional service in a beautifully decorated calming environment.

Our chef has an enviable local reputation recreating classic English dishes using fresh locally sourced produce. Our menus change on a regular basis but always includes fresh Cromer Crab when in season and available.

Having two restaurant spaces allows us to offer exclusive bookings for family occasions, business meetings and networking events. We also organise local group meals and lunch stops for coach parties whether touring North Norfolk or visiting the Pavilion theatre on Cromer Pier.


Start your day the right way! With our freshly prepared home cooked ‘Taste of Norfolk’ breakfasts no one leaves hungry!

Start with a choice of cereals, fruit and juices from the buffet. Be sure to try our muslei, homemade in the kitchens, one not to miss. Then it’s on to the main course. We locally source our eggs (fresher than any you will get in a supermarket), bacon & sausages and Cromer smoked whole kippers, a must when staying on the North Sea coast.

For those feeling a little more decadent try our fluffy light pancakes with fresh fruit and lashings of maple syrup. Round the whole meal off with unlimited freshly brewed coffee/tea and toast – be sure not to miss out on our delicious homemade jams and preserves the carrot and cardamom jam is especially popular!

Breakfast is served 8-9.30 am daily and 8-10 am at weekends and bank holidays.

The full breakfast is available to non-residents if booked in advance for £10 per person.
