Having just returned from visiting family in the Midlands, we called in for a late Sunday lunch. It was really busy but they fitted us in. Food was lovely followed by live music. Will be back. Friendly staff. Only hiccup is shortage of car parking facilities. We were lucky and took a just abated space.

Fantastic! Great food, good wine, service spot on. Very welcoming place. We came in sheepishly due to being late for our booked table, but it was no problem. The norfolk board for starter was very good! Along with the chicken liver. Mains curry and duck, perfect amount of food, lovely to get veg!! We will be back.

I booked a table to celebrate a friend's bump (aka Baby Shower) this month and was not disappointed with the results! Friends had not been to the Burston Crown before and all said they would return soon, after they were welcomed (not just by staff but locals!), well fed and well watered! Great food and great times, would certainly recommend... More

We are down on holiday at the moment and I have to say that finding a good place to eat is somewhat difficult without going to Norwich, however after visiting the coast a couple we met recommended the Burston crown and we weren't disappointed I had a burger and my wife had the lasagne both of which were great! I... More

After nearly an hour after being served we finally got our lunch and two of us out of four were very poorly 15 minutes after eating it!! Strange how we both had the same for our lunch??!! After confronting the manager/land lady the next day she totally disagreed and was very rude and refused to discus the situation which we... More

Go to this excellent pub and order the Sticky Toffee Pudding. I'm tired of establishments putting things on their menu like "award winning" "famous" "world's best" etc. It's all gimmicky and quite off putting. However on browsing the special board, the banana and black pepper tarte tatin caught my eye. I was then reliably informed that the Sticky Toffee pudding... More

A fabulous little place! On a recky of the area for a possible house move we chanced upon this pub and they very kindly fitted us in for Sunday lunch (they were packed!). Nice food, nothing special but a lovely little pub. Worth a visit.

I just love this pub - great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and the food is scrumptious. What more could you want on a lovely sunny day than to be sitting in beautiful surroundings, eating lovely food and being waited on hand and foot! Highy recommended. PS - he didn't pay for the drinks up... More
