Just gets better and better!

This is the second time we have been to the Crown and it only get's better - this time for Sunday lunch. The Sunday roast of beef was stunning, so often Sunday lunch is one of quantity but this was the perfect size and I will say this again the beef was stunning - supported by a range of fresh... read more

Stayed locally in B and B and they recommended this pub and booked a table on our behalf. We were not disappointed. This is a family run pub and had been owned by them for the past few years. Dad is the landlord, wife is one of the chefs and daughter works in the bar. The pubs itself is a... More

A delicious lunch in lovely surroundings. Everything is home made, including the gorgeous ice cream (especially the honeycomb flavour). This is a delightful, informal place to go for lunch, with good food, a warm welcome and excellent service. We'll definitely be back, maybe dinner next time.

Wedding Anniversary meal. Very good food and a step up average pub grub, definitely posh pub. Good wine list. Was a little lacking in atmosphere - 4 other tables but rather than space us out so we all has a little space we were all in one side of the dining room and I now know more about the ins... More

The Buxhall Crown seems to have maintained its country pub feel, not too posh or pushy for it surely is a gastro pub. You receive a warm personal welcome from the owner and the staff are extremely courteous and everything is done to make you feel at ease and I found I relaxed as soon as I walked through the...

Loved everything!! The setting was cosy, the food was out of this world, the waitress didn't hassle us and the barman knew everything about the food that was being served, A little pricey to do it every weekend but worth every penny!
