“Great place to eat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We visited Saturday evening for a family meal to celebrate my mother in-laws birthday. We chose Banningham Crown as we have visited before.
Staff were very friendly and very helpful. We all had a selection of meals from the menu. All meals were excellent. We had a excellent time and would come again to experience a great friendly atmosphere.

“Last minute light lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Arrived at short notice for a light lunch. Staff were so welcoming and friendly. The pub was packed yet service was so friendly and attentive. Admittedly we just had a couple of baguettes and some chips, but it arrived so quickly. We didn't feel pressure to order big meals - staff found us a table quickly and were so genuinely friendly and willing to help.
The pub is being refurbished/mended but in spite of this, it was full on a Monday lunch. They make families and young children very welcome- this was evident in amount of young families in the pub. This pub suits any age - many pensioners were enjoying their lunch as well!
The pub is old fashioned and traditional- a refreshing break from all the usual stripped floor, minimalist gastro pubs that litter Norfolk.
You will get tasty honest pub grub at a good price. There is a homely feel here and you will be well looked after.
There is a good selection of wine and real ales. We particularly enjoyed the Cabernet Sauvignon and Trafalgar ale

“A right good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Visited this restaurant last Sunday for lunch with relatives. Luckily we had booked, as they were turning people away, it was very busy, but did not seem over crowded. We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table. We ate in the bar. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We had a selection of meals, including the suet pudding, roast of the day, and the beef wellington. This was cooked to order, so we had to wait, but were advised of this as soon as we ordered and it was well worth the wait. Delicious. The portions sizes were large and we all struggled to finish. Two of us had pudding, which again was well presented and tasty. All in all a very good experience from beginning to end, and the bill at the end was very reasonable. Thanks to all involved. We will definitely make a return visit.

“It cannot be faulted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We visited here with some friends who have been several times and recommended the place. It is a pub/restaurant but the atmosphere is good, the place is busy and the staff are friendly and helpful. The seared scallops were cooked to perfection and the pheasant was beautifully moist and tender. I would have no hesitation in visiting again and would certainly recommend to anyone. The menu is quite large which generally puts me off as I wonder whether everything is freshly cooked but I had no doubts here that everything was prepared to order. Thank you for an excellent meal in a lovely setting.
