Look out for local Mussels, when in season, Blakeney whitebait, Norfolk game pie, soft herring roes on toast and the superb Cromer crab salads that are such a feature of the area. You can eat in or out, and on hot days the cool from the stream offers welcome freshness. A short but enterprising wine list is well supplied with wine by the glass. On first impressions, The Red Lion at Stiffkey is a traditional Norfolk Pub in almost every sense of the word, from the rustic wooden pews and four log fires to the original stone floor and selection of local brews on offer.
