Fantastic! Really great food, lovely place

The best lunch I've had in a long time. Lovely food, lots of interesting dishes, flavours beautifully blended. The mushrooms with Parmesan cream is the best mushroom dish I can remember having, neither too mushroomy nor too cheesy. We were both tempted into having puddings as well. Amazing and... read more

recently visited here with family , food portions are small and overpriced for what they are . you could definitely eat a 3 course meal here no problem , I usually only manage 1 course ! the food is presented nice but for that you pay a premium , I would rather see a bit more on the plate personally...

We have truly found a gem in Suffolk. The food is the best we have ever had and we can clearly taste the ingredients are fresh. The hosts and staff are fantastic with exquisite service skills. The first meal made my partners birthday really memorable and we will certainly be going back time and time again.

We have recently moved to the area & have visited The Buxhall Crown a few times. Today we walked across the local fields & had Sunday lunch. It was by far the best meal we have ever had. We had 3 course that were perfect in every way. Another tip is to listen too Shaun as he knows his wines... More

Visited for lunch and ate from the the a la carte menu. Service was fantastic throughout from both the landlord and the waitress. All three courses were fantastic and all enjoyed their meals. A true gem in Suffolk with food verging on being worthy of a Michelin star.

It was the first time my husband and I had been to the Crown and on arrival you were made welcome by a cosy fire and a friendly landlord. The menu was very appealing and the food was excellent along with the service from the waitresses who were very helpful but not intrusive. My husband and I thought all in... More

First time at the Buxhall Crown on Saturday night with friends. Perfect service, great atmosphere in a country pub and fine dining without formality. The landlord told us a week before we dined that all food is prepared on the premises except the sausages which he gets from a local butcher. The food was excellent, well prepared, perfectly presented and... More
