it's a very long story why we were in the area, suffice to say our ancestors have lived in the local area for 200 years at least, and we were "digging" around today. We booked the Crown for Sunday lunch after searching the Internet for location, menu and price. We hit the jackpot! Our server Vanessa was exceptional, not only... More

I've been meaning to write a review of the Crown for some time, having visited several times over the last few years and it has always been most enjoyable. The proprietor, Sean, is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wine, beer and whisky, I enjoy listening to his descriptions and his suggestions have always been spot on. I am inspired to... More

Thought we'd give "The Crown" a try, due to the good reviews. Only moved to the area a couple of months ago and wanted to find some top quality restaraunts. This is definitely fits into the category. The menu changes with the seasons / availability of local produce. A great variety is to be had, the Venison is fantastic, also... More

We are lucky to live only a few minutes by car from the Buxhall Crown. In two visits we have been delighted by the great food, lovely ambience on the timber framed building, and really good service, all for a reasonable price. Its a bit out of the way for many, but well worth the effort to get there. Full... More

recently went there with my wife and my son for sunday lunch. Excellent to find that the outdoor tables were wheelchair friendly, not often you come across that !! Meal was very good and service was excellent and with a smile. Our only gripe...... we sat in the garden and couldnt see the beautiful suffolk countryside because the fence around... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food and the menu was very comprehensive but may I make a 'helpful' suggestion - it was a very hot evening and the choices were rather 'wintry'. More fish and lighter summery' dishes would have given you 5 stars! Apart from that the garden courtyard was beautifully kept and the staff very helpful and pleasant.

Sorry to disagree with previous reviews but my roast beef was ruined by the sweet gravy. I think there is a new trend for using balsamic vinegar or sugar ? My Yorkshire pudding was overcooked and no tasteOne of my friends thought her belly of pork could have been better.

Was out in the countryside on a lovely day, asked our satnav (sally traffic) for restaurants and this was the closest. A soon as we stepped in we knew we were in for a treat. The menu's looked fab, the attention to detail on the wines are the best I have had in this country in a pub, the owner... More

We went to the Crown for the first time this week and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the welcome and attention to detail of the service, complimented it.. The day had turned a bit cool and they had even put the heating on. We would recommend it on the basis of our experience.
