Well run with a kitchen that knows how to properly cook fish

Ate here 4 weeks ago and it was very good. The baked figs and blue cheese starter was delicious and light. The monkfish risotto was also well cooked and tasty. We decided to re-visit for a meal this week. The pub was quieter than our first visit, but there was still a good atmosphere. Bar service was a tad slow,... More

Some years ago we were recommended to this hostelry by friends from Kings Lynn. We visit this area once or twice a year and always eat at the Crown - if we can get in. Last night's meal was one to remember. Charming Irish waitress got the mix of information, chat, and leaving us alone just right. My calves liver... More

We have passed this pub a few times now and said "we must try it !". Today, on our way back from Norwich, we finally did. Lovely Sunday lunch. I had roast pork and my partner had roast beef. Both meals came with a lovely selection of vegetables and were delicious ! It made such a nice change to have... More

Having asked for my mushy peas to be substituted for a small salad, we were later charged. When asked if the meal was ok, I reported that I found the fish to be totally tasteless, having eaten less than half the meal. At the beginning of the evening there was some kind of confusion which resulted in us receiving an... More

Greeted by the delightful and efficient managaress (who, rumour has it, is the power behind the throne of what must rank as the most charming village fête in Norfolk at Gunthorpe PS last weekend in July)), my friends from a country even further below sea-level than West Norfolk and I were shown to a table close, but not too close,...

We have visited the crown many times and are yet to be disappointed. Decor is very homely and reminds you of a local pub. Good selection of wines and ales every time. Food is slightly more up market but definitely worth its cost and is made with locally sourced ingredients Portion size is good. Im sure we will be back... More

Visited the crown for a New year's eve meal as we we were unable to find other options at late notice. As we had not been before we did not know what to expect. The meal was pretty good overall apart from the canapes which were not too impressive nor the champagne which had obviously been opened a while. Both... More

We visited the crown back in July and had a really great meal. Although the menu was limited we all managed to find something to eat and enjoyed it. So going on a previous visit we thought we would go back. What a mistake! Menu choice extremely limited, and very much over priced (£20 for an 8oz rib eye and... More
