Four of us had a fabulous meal here today - 2 x beer battered cod, 1 x ploughmans, 1 x (small) steak & kidney pie. All of them were delicious and the servings extremely generous. Managed to find enough space for 3 puddings though, all superb. One of the best pub meals I've had for quite a long time.

We came to this fantastic pub for a family celebration for a 50th Birthday. We were a large group and all enjoyed a fantastic lunch which was served by friendly and efficient staff. We all had puddings which were amazing too. Although the weather was not good outside a rather lovely roaring fire was welcoming and a fantastic atmosphere inside too. We will definitely be returning soon.

A huge THANK YOU for the most wonderful service and patience for my son's 21st birthday party held on the 5th Feb 2016. We all had a grand time, it was unhurried, fabulous food and really marked the occassion for us in a very special way. People travelled from Ireland, Surrey and......Sheringham for it!! So, well done to the Chef and kitchen staff, the table waiter and waitresses and to Tilly whose organisation was seamless. See you again soon.

We had a fantastic meal tonight. (the best this year!) I had the Hevingham chicken, delicious, followed by the chocolate creme brulee. Wow! Great atmosphere and staff. Thanks again for the perfect finish to our day off. We will be back soon!
Service was very good, everyone was very friendly from bar staff through to customers having a drink. The pub is clean and well looked after. I looked like a right scruff when I walked in but no-one batted an eye, I was treated like a local ( I think ).

Food was excellent and my son reckoned it was the best pasta he'd ever had....... If you do go to this pub, I do not think you'll leave disappointed
Although we live close to Banningham I hadn't been to the Crown for years. They have extended it and made it into a fabulous eating place. The food itself was lovely and an extensive menu, not too pricey either. It was the extra touches that made this place so outstanding- staff friendly and dressed well, the kitchen open to view, and the water and rolls put on the table without being requested and at no extra cost. It also impressed me that although it is mainly an eating place there is still a bar where you can just sit and have a drink. I really can't speak highly enough of this place.

Had dinner last night with our 2 girls. We loved it from the minute we walked in. Had to wait for 30 minutes to get restaurant ready but ordered immediately some drinks and sat next to the fire. Girls were thrilled with the Elsa colouring page they received ;-) The fish was very nice and children had the lasagna. It changes from other pubs. Also lot of toys for children to play. The staff is extremely friendly. If we wouldn't live that far, we would come regularly! I also loved the kitchen which was nicely integrated in the restaurant! Address to remember X

Just a note to thank all at the Crown for a thoroughly enjoyable Valentine's dinner. As usual food and service were excellent.

Going to the Crown is always a pleasure as you are always made so welcome.
The 7 of us have just been to Banningham Crown for our friends annual get together! Unfortunately the others who couldn't make it missed out on an excellent time!

Our choice meals were superb in every way and we certainly did not go hungry.
It was fantastic not to be rushed between our courses and to take our time to enjoy the food and atmosphere.
This was our first time of visiting and certainly we will come again.
Excellent location, food and staff...Megan...loved your penguin jumper!!
Would recommend to any friends, family or anyone who wants to visit a great place for fabulous food.
