Came here with local friends on a damp Sunday. A very traditional style pub with a huge open brick fireplace, like several around here, and a good local buzz. A varied menu with daily specials, unusually, we opted for the Sunday roast lamb, which came in a generous amount, with very good roast potatoes and a huge plate of mixed... More

The Crown offers a varied and interesting menu, providing restaurant quality food at a good price. This is not pub grub. The pub with its open fire has a very cosy atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

This place is a hidden gem. The atmosphere is great & the staff always smiling when they welcome you. There's also a superb, sensibly priced menu which can be enjoyed in either the restaurant or bar. The chef is one of the best in Norfolk & they certainly deserve their success. We will definitely be back.

I took my family yesterday to the Crown in Burston and discovered one fantastic place to eat. The menu offers something for everyone and there are specials on the board. My wife had Seabass and I had Cod. It was fresh and well cooked. The atmosphere in the place was warm and welcoming and I can't understand why a previous... More

This pub is faultless and so deserves best community pub award. After a recent health issue Steve the chef went out of his way to make sure that despite complicated food requirements I was able to have a number of excellent meals. Awesome hosts and great staff!!

We also appreciated that the crackers and napkins were not cheap and nasty....Overall good value Service was good with extra veg provided where required. Small improvements from my point of view would be a yorkshire pudding with a... More

We'd been recommended this pub but it did not live up to expectations! It took a long time to be seated, the food wasn't good, and to top it off the land lady was rude to us on a number of occasions! When we complained about the food we were told it was our there was a problem with our... More

Yes running a pub can be tough, But we love it the smooth and the rough, These revellers wouldn't budge, And they left with a grudge, They clearly don't love us, that's enough! More

We had trouble getting to the Bar on arrival as it was so busy! But once we got our drinks and sat at the table it was superb. Our waiter was charming and very helpful. The food was all very good and we had several different choices. The restaurant was full and but the service was still very good.

The Burston Crown is located in South Norfolk near to Diss. The pub is located in the village and has good parking facilities. The pub is very cozy, with a choice of rooms and seating areas. There's a good range of beers and spirits. The menu is very varied from roast partridge to scampi and chips; all at reasonable prices.... More
