We visited The Buxhall Crown and when I booked, I asked if they had vegan and vegetarian options (there were four of us eating there - two meateaters, a veggie and a vegan). I expected the usual offhand disinterest that I get at a lot of restaurants, as some chefs are nervous or just can't be bothered to cater for... More

Since we last visited two years ago there have been some changes to some of the furniture, the general atmosphere is still one of a pub trying to be something better than a pub. The food is ok, the choice of beer and wine, not very exciting and the general atmosphere feels like it could do with some envigorating, such... More

A cousin recommended the Buxhall Crown, so we decided to try it. It has a small car park, the building is 17th century with later additions we were told by the landlord. The décor is very good, with exposed beams, and plaster covered walls. It offers a good selection of wines and beers, at reasonable prices. The menu, although not... More

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 original range of ice creams ( beetroot - tasted like a... More

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
