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.

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.

We went to the Crown yesterday for my wife's birthday and we all have fantastic food and service. It is only ten minutes by car from us and I wish we had found this little gem years ago. I would strongly recommend going there. We shall return there soon! Thanks The Macdonald family

Had the family down from Newcastle, struggled to find somewhere to eat so thought we would try The Buxhall Inn. I'm glad we did, food was fantastic and the staff were excellent. The manager/owner is very helpful and has an excellent wine collection including some quirky (but very tasty) choices. Would highly recommend .

Myself and my husband were getting bored of the local pubs and thought we would branch out for an evening and it was worth it! The landlord's wine suggestion was fantastic, the food was absolutely gorgeous and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Would definitely visit again - please keep up the good work all pubs should aim for these standards!
