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

We took my mother for a traditional Sunday lunch and had a great time. The staff are very welcoming and the food is great.

What a gem! we have just dined at The Crown at Burston for the first time and cannot recommend it enough. A roaring fire in the woodburner, and a warm welcome from Jess was a fine start - his wit and demeanor as front of house was a lovely welcome. Attentive at the table, but not over the top -... More

A group of about 9 of us were away in Diss for the weekend for a birthday and ended up in The Crown after a nice country walk. We arrived too late for lunch which was a shame but you can't expect country pubs to serve all afternoon so we weren't bothered. We spent about 4 hours at the pub... More

Thanks for your comments. A few days before you came in to The Burston Crown and were so rude, we were given the award for Community Pub of the Year 2016. This evening our wonderful pub will be full of lovely people and you will not be there by definition and because of your behaviour. More

Another great meal at Burston Crown, warm welcome from Beverly, and a fantastic meal cooked by the chef. Always a pleasure to eat here.

Traditional, unpretentious, proper village pub serving home made (not just home cooked) food of good quality at a fair price. Nice menu selection, rather than the usual Brake brothers fayre. Can't wait to return.

Emailed The Crown late in the week to book Friday evening at a pub/restaurant we've known for 34 years; pleasant response confirming booking. We arrived when the place was packed and very busy, but were made welcome with excellent wines. Menu brief, but well-balanced. Garlic field mushroom starter on rocket was perfect; mains: chicken and ham pie, and chicken with... More

Fabulous place in an idyllic Norfolk village. Lovely Staff - couldn't be friendlier. Food disappointing, I had the fish with pea risotto. - Fish was served upside down on top of a block of cheesy rice with frozen peas stuck in it. The fish tasted of cheese due to this! I returned almost all of the meal without a question... More
