Cromer pub set to reopen

An historic North Norfolk pub that has operated since Victorian times, but which closed unexpectedly in October, is set to reopen.

Mystery surrounded the reasons for the closure of The King's Head on High Street in Cromer.

It closed without warning, shortly after being re-launched as an American-themed pub and diner after a makeover. For more than two months, the curtains have been closed and the doors locked.

But now the pub's owner Punch Taverns has confirmed that a new, as yet unnamed licensee has been lined up to take over.

A spokesman said: 'We are pleased to confirm we have a new licensee and plan to re-open as soon as possible.'
