About the Welly
The Wellington Hotel is set in the heart of Cromer and is a pebble’s throw from the beach and town. There has been a pub on this site for over 200 hundred years; however the original site burnt down in the late 1800’s, before being rebuilt not long after. The Wellington comprises of a large Victorian bar, pool room and a large courtyard garden which seats up to 40 people.
The Wellington is a friendly pub and always has a great atmosphere. Sky Sports is shown daily and we will be happy to accommodate any requests (as long as nothing else is showing!). We also have dual Sky boxes, so can show two matches at the same time. We have great staff who are always polite and friendly. We also have four letting rooms, which are all en-suite and have a television, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities.
