Great Meal

It's our local so tend not to eat as we normally go further afield and service has been hit and miss in the past , called in for a beer and watched the food come out and couldn't resist. Between us we had oysters and crab bisque and 2 half lobsters. Excellent , simply prepared and better for it... read more

Decided to give the Crown another try after our last unsatisfactory meal. Arrived early with about 6 people at the bar and four staff evident. Was told we could have a table as long as we were quick as the were fully booked. We agreed to that then sat there for 30 mins before our order was taken. Unusually be... More

We called in for lunch whilst in Wells. It is a lovely old rustic inn which serves lovely meals especially their own curries and the monkfish risotto. The staff were all very friendly. We have subsequently stayed there. Great breakfasts although rooms rather small.

Called in by chance for lunch. Very friendly staff. Thought of having a sandwich but changed our mind when we saw the menu. My burger was one of the best I have tasted and my wife's curry was excellent as well. Only wish this was closer to our home as would use it more often.

The Crown was recommended by friends as a more upmarket Gastro Pub! Unfortunately we found the food to be disappointingly average and the service was very slow. We wouldn't be in a rush to return.

We have been to the Crown several times over the last 5 years as we own a holiday home in the village and we so want it to be good, but sadly find it pretty hit and miss. The basic problem, regardless of who is managing it, is the lack of waiting staff and the fact that the kitchen never... More

We were recommended to The Crown at East Rudham, so decided to go there for dinner on the last night of our holiday in Norfolk. The ambience was great, such a busy, popular pub. There were 5 in our party and we were pleased that we had pre-booked, as the restaurant was very crowded. The service was friendly and efficient,... More

Nicely smart pub restaurant, more of a quality dining destination than a pub. On weekday lunchtime, having completed a hike we entered to find tables set for multiple courses, wine and water glasses, lit candles even - and all we wanted was a sandwich and beer. We were shown to an unreserved table and the excess table items were removed.... More
