Should have worn a tie, out of place in my hiking clothes

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... read more

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

Love this place and call in often, though not as often as Tom who goes every day. Usually the chef has provided a superbly flavour matched snack or meal, but gosh things did slip this time, the same dish of squid that was exquisitly flavoured last time, was monotonously boring this time, and my husbands fish was tasteless and too...

Thank you for your recent posting. I am sorry you did not enjoy your squid and fish and chips, clearly we did not get it right that day, and it certainly wasn`t due to a young chef being left in charge! I do hope you will come back and try us again, Tom has had the fish and chips today... More

We called in at the Crown on the spur of the moment. Service was about to begin and we were welcomed and shown to a table immediately. The staff were very friendly, attentive and obliging. We placed orders for starters and mains. I chose Whisky cured salmon and my wife the chicken caesar salad to start with. The salmon was... More

Have eaten here 3 times now and its always superb. The menu, food quality, service and value for money are really good. There's some right rubbish round here (see my other reviews!) but The Crown is currently the best place I have visited locally (just). If I was to criticise anything - its now 95% a restaurant and only 5%... More

We had a very nice meal here although it is a it pricey. The staff were very friendly and the pub is very quaint with lots of little areas to eat in.

We enjoyed our evening meal at the Crown while on holiday in north Norfolk. I had local asparagus and then sea bass niçoise, which was different, but delicious. The wine was top quality and moderately priced. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his steak and real ale. Service was very friendly but a bit slow. We did wonder if our table in... More
