Cromer Crab Season 2020


We are very lucky living on the North Norfolk Coast and having easy access to the truly delicious Cromer Crab.

Cromer crabs are caught in the North Sea around the Norfolk town of Cromer. The nutrient-rich waters and chalk shelf in this area mean the crabs are particularly flavoursome, fragrant and tender and are one of Norfolk's most famous exports.

The crabbing season has grown and now lasts for eight months of the year, from March to October, peaking in May and June and declining slightly in July and August, when the crabs breed, moult and grow new shells.

While in lockdown and restaurants closing it’s even more important to support our local Crab Fisherman. Its probably fair to say on previous years demand has far outstripped supply but this year is going to be the other way.

We are now stocking Cromer Crabs both Dressed and Boiled throughout the summer visit our shop in King’s Lynn or click here to buy Fresh crab from our online shop.
