Diners were asked to rate meals for taste, presentation and originality to be in with a chance of winning a main course for two, with the eateries gaining the most votes presented with certificates by Sheringham Carnival Association.

Overall winner was Station Road café The Kitchen, whose chef, Andy Clitheroe, cooked up a crab and prawn tart with a breadcrumb, parsley and parmesan topping with sweet chilli sauce.
