“Simply Delicious!”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

Spoilt for choice at lunchtime on Wednesday, we decided to return for lunch on Sunday, and weren't disappointed.......just amazed that we managed to eat so much!
Four of us each ordered a different main course (surely a chef's nightmare), all four arrived at the same time, along with a selection of fresh local vegetables. All beautifully cooked & presented and absolutely delicious.
Would we like a desert? Of course - and these were equally delicious. The only problem was choosing between treacle tart, pavlova, panacotta, and a whole list of other temptations.
I should also mention the beers - a good selection on draught, and it was a treat to see them served in the correct glasses.
The service was provided by cheerful smiling staff.
Would we return? Can't wait until our next visit to North Norfolk.

“2nd visit hen party meal”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

Came here as part of my hen day it was y second visit following a very good experience first time. Food was very good as always. Ony complaint was my best friend had just had a baby and had a pushchair, staff not very accommodating in making room for it, almost felt as if it was an inconvieniance. We managed to fit it in thankfully but didn't feel that staff were too interested. Other then that a good time had by all. Beware if you have a pushchair or wheelchair, the place is not too accessible.

“Great place to eat.”
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”
Reviewed October 28, 2013 via mobile

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
