Mystery as historic Cromer pub closes

There were doubts about the future of a long-standing Cromer pub this week after it was suddenly shut down.

The King's Head on High Street has been a pub since Victorian times, but closed a couple of weeks ago without warning.

The pub recently relaunched as an American-themed diner after a makeover. But there are now no signs of life, with the curtains closed and the doors locked.

A spokesman for pub owner Punch Taverns said: 'Our priority is to reopen the King's Head. We are currently in discussions with our leaseholders about the closure of the pub and hope to resolve the situation as soon as possible.'
