We booked table for four. It was very busy on the night we chose, so good job we booked. Everyone enjoyed their meals which included scampi, gammon, chicken and burger! Highly recommend you try this place.

Another great meal. Super food, fantastic staff and atmosphere. 13 of my family had Mother's Day at the Crown, and thoroughly enjoyed it. As always Megan is very attentive although very busy still managed to spend time with us. This is definitely our favourite pub. Keep coming back. Thanks to all involved see you soon xx.

The rural setting for this pub couldn't be more idyllic but the menu was definitely cosmopolitan. The service was friendly as well as efficient. I would recommend it for couples and families as the meals were fantastic at a reasonable cost. This hidden gem is worth looking for.

Always lovely fresh food and friendly staff. The dining area is warm and cosy making this an ideal place for comfort eating. No loud music too so conversations can be heard.

We visited here after a lovely trip to Blickling Estate and it was lovely. Good quality children's menu & lovely garden for children to run around. Homemade good quality pub food and the staff / service was incredibly welcoming. Thank you to those involved. See you again.
