A chance booking but a wonderful outcome. It doesn't look the part from the outside but, Oh Boy, on the inside it fair takes your breath away. An unpretentious entrance into a simple bar and restaurant leaves you unprepared for the menus which are simply huge for such a small number of tables. At first you are suspicious that it... More

I have previously posted a glowing review of The Buxhall Crown but, having today had another exceptional experience there, I felt compelled to post another review. My wife and I took two friends for lunch and all four of us had the most exquisite food. The menu is a delight to ponder over and the food when it arrives at... More

This country pub is in a very remote but gorgeous setting. The pub itself is very atmospheric with beams and lovely old fireplace. It was spotlessly clean. We were warmly welcomed and seated in a quaint little restaurant. I had a mini trio of fish which consisted of three little dishes of smoked salmon mousse, crayfish tails and trout with... More

My wife and I visited the Buxhall crown whilst staying at a local B&B and enjoyed 2 beautiful meals. Everything is fresh well prepared and very well presented. The landlord was very friendly and showed a good knowledge of wine and had a real passion for the produce on the menu. You might think the prices just a little expensive... More

Having read the glowing reports for this restaurant my wife and I were full of anticipation for what was to come. Indeed first impressions were great - the menu is good and varied, the choice of wines is impressive and it was spotlessly clean. Our waitress explained that all meals were freshly cooked which was rather unfortunate as one of... More

This is a beautiful pub in a stunning location. With very good food and drink, personal attentive service and a warm atmosphere, this makes a lovely venue for a special evening out. The landlord will leave you in no doubt about his knowledge and passion for the source and quality of his drinks and cooking ingredients.

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... More
