Bob Davies's Crab Shop, run by Bob and Billy Davies, stood proudly on The Gangway, just by the seafront, selling the famous Cromer crabs.

It was featured in a BBC TV programme called Now and Then, in 1978, where famous fisherman Henry 'Shrimp' Davies toured the streets of Cromer and showed viewers the shop.

In the programme the front of the shop announced that it was featured in the popular TV game show, the Generation Game.

It is a Grade II listed building and has a maisonette above the shop and a seating area outside for customers.
