Stopped for lunch, had not booked. 70 in for lunch and a 'wake' in the conservatory but the staff still found us a table next to the lovely log fire. Lunch was delicious and despite being extremely busy the service was excellent.

Have known and frequented the Crown for a few years now and our latest recent (evening) meal here was, as usual, l generous, tasty and served with plenty of warmth and smiles. We normally go here alone but this time we were part of a relatively large party. It made no difference; the kitchen and waiting staff coped admirably and... More

Walked here with the kids and the dogs on a chilly November afternoon, to be welcomed by a roaring warm fire, lovely friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble and they fully accommodated three dogs and two children! Food was outstanding, huge portions, hot fresh and tasty and incredibly good value for money! So happy this...

As two local people we most certainly prefer the Crown to all other local pubs because of their warm, friendly welcome; the efficient service either in the bar or restaurant; and best of all, the truly wonderful varied menu that always offers well cooked, great value for money dishes. Without being too biased, the "His" Steak & Kidney Pudding is... More

Popped in for lunch on a Friday. There was a lovely friendly atmosphere and the welcoming smell of a real fire. We sat in the bar area and both had whole tail scampi and chips - beautifully cooked and speedy smiling service. Can't fault it and will definitely be back.

We visited the Banningham Crown recently as a group of 7. We also took 3 dogs with us as we were on holiday and they were made to feel just as welcome as us. The service was prompt, efficient and polite, with all the staff making the effort to have conversations with us. The food came in good time and... More

Great food and service! (Many a restaurant could learn a thing or two from the team here - service was impeccable from a very friendly team!) Perfect for Sunday afternoon and a plus not to be restricted to traditional Norfolk Sunday eating times. 100% recommend a visit here!
