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

We enjoyed a friends get together at the Buxhall Crown on a Saturday evening and were lucky to be seated in a private dining area with access to the bar. Service was excellent and the food was great. You must go and try some of their home made ice-cream. Expect the unexpected! A fantastic selection of Gins with the local... More

The food here is usually very good and the roast beef (+ the roast spuds) on Sunday particularly scrummy. Service very good and located in a lovely village. All in all, worth a visit.

From the outside, The Buxhall Crown lit up the night sky and looked old, charming and welcoming. We were not to be disappointed as it was even better when we got inside, saw all the wooden beams and timbers, and felt the heat from the fires that were burning in the hearths. The welcome from the landlord was just as... More

Just went for Sunday lunch at the Buxhall Crown and really enjoyed it. Both my friend and I had the roast beef followed by chocolate fondant dessert and everything was delicious. Also, a very friendly service which made it extra special. Would recommend!

We had been to the crown for lunch whilst house hunting and having moved knew we wanted to try their evening menu. So finally we booked for a Friday in Feb. We had really enjoyed lunch the last time we were here so hopes were high. We were not disappointed. A lovely unusual gin for a drink before dinner, beautiful... More

Everything was just perfect. Great service, great beer, great food and great wine. We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we entered the pub. We will definitely go back again!
