Had a couple of meals here whilst staying at Fasbourn Hall. The food is excellent, the owner is very knowledgeable about his stock of wines, and the service from our waitress was brilliant. One thing to check, however - they are not open every night for food, nor are they open all day, as we townies have come to expect,... More

A gorgeous balmy Saturday evening spent at this lovely Inn. We have never been before but this is now going to be a destination for us. A lovely welcome, great Gin selection and we sat in the decked garden which had a magical atmosphere. Then there was the food I could tell by the presentation of the menu that this... More

Wheelchair accessible. Large but odd shaped car park to the rear. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The food is of top quality. There is a lovely atmosphere, always warm and welcoming. By far the best place to eat in Stowmarket.

We decided to take a friend for lunch and my partner remembered going here 15 years ago but apparently it has changed hugely. The dining area is quite intimate and i would say brilliant for a private meal for several people. We were welcomed by a man we later discovered to be the owner and were seated immediately. We were... More

We visited the Buxhall Crown today for lunch. Great service, lovely food and beautiful old pub. Bill was reasonably priced, roast beef was fab and we had lots of potatoes and veg. Couldn't fault the staff - very hospitable and we will definitely come back again.

When we arrived we were warmly greeted and the land lord was very friendly. We took our drinks to the table and were given a menu. We then waited and waited for our order to be taken. The waitress returned to our seating area but completely ignored us. It was a good 30 minutes later that I said to my... More

The Staff were really friendly and efficient and the selection of wines and drinks etc are very extensive. The Owners knowledge of drinks and food was great too, helped us to decide. We ordered the racks of lamb,... More

First time here but certainly not the last. Even the weather was good. All the food served was hot. We all had roast beef and it was cooked exactly to our personal taste. We sat in the garden which is lovely. Lots of flowers and shrubs. Staff were very helpful and friendly. They actually seemed to enjoy their job! Definitely... More

Meeting up with a cousin who I hadn't seen for over 55 years, I wanted somewhere that served excellent food . The Buxhall Crown certainly fulfilled and exceeded all expectations
