I have visited this pub several times in the past with family and friends and have never felt able to afford it the praise that many other reviewers feel able to attribute it. Last Saturday afternoon it managed to sink to new depths. I called in with a group of friends for a drink. The service was diabolically slow with... More

Lovely birthday lunch with the family. Pub was very busy on a Saturday lunch time which was good to see. Great welcome and staff very friendly. Food bit slow to arrive but understand home cooked and was delicious so well worth the wait.

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
