Testimonials

We were visiting Cromer and wanted lunch out and found the Banningham Crown. Never been before but was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and atmosphere of the pub. No problem with fitting us in and basically we could sit either in the restaurant or bar. We chose the bar. The menu is extensive offering good selection of fish, meat or vegetarian. Two of us had the steak and kidney pudding and one the pork. We were all impressed with the food. The pudding was brilliant, full of meat. The suet was just right. The food was well priced. Great selection of real ales and lager. The restaurant was very busy but still the staff managed to be helpful, friendly and extremely professional. Well done! Would certainly recommend the Crown.

Visited here for the second time and on each occasion sat in the garden area. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the food was excellent. We will always look to go there each time we are in north Norfolk.

We went here as a party of five for a birthday celebration. From start to finish the whole experience was probably the best we have ever had in this country! We booked online and had confirmation soon after. We were greeted by a very friendly guy and sat outside in the lovely garden in the sun for drinks first. Menus were brought to us. When the time came that our table was booked, they came and took our order and were extremely informativel and friendly. We chose to eat inside and what a lovely place it is. Huge. Far bigger than we thought. The food was outstanding and massive portions and excellent value for money. The vegetarian options were better than other pubs in Norfolk too. We can’t find a single fault with this restaurant and will most definitely be returning on a regular basis. Thank you for such wonderful meals! Oh and it is dog friendly should you have a pooch.

My family had lunch at the Crown yesterday and I was very impressed. The service was superb and the staff were very knowledgeable. After Jason had taken our meal order he told us what new beer was going on after one barrel finished. This all happened at our table-he just knew and didn't have to check with the bar staff.

What a lovely place, it was New Years Eve and very busy but all the staff were so friendly and accommodating .We had an amazing Roast sat by the fire, I had a nut roast which was superb.
I was very impressed with the Gin menu.

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.

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.

Upon our arrival we were received by very welcoming and friendly staff who were genuine and pleasant throughout our entire visit. We had the Steak and Kidney Puddings which we both thought were very good but defeated us both! We will definitely visit again
