My husband and I visit here as much as we can, the atmosphere is great, the food is fantastic and the service is top notch!! You can't beat the quality of the food, and as for the ice cream, well we order in tubs and take it home!!! You can't fault this place, it's our favourite!!

First visit and not disappointed. Lovely fresh ingredients and tasty food. I especially recommend the millionaire chocolate mousse to die for! The only slight downside is it's not very big and we were on a table for two so we're pretty close to the table next to is so not very private but I know they can't help this. Would... More

The meal was lovely especially the steak cooked exactly as we wished and that was large portion. The menu is not large but the variety very good. The sweets were awesome defiantly go back just for those. A bit pricey but enjoyable all the same. The landlord was extremely knowledgeable about his wines

My husband and I enjoyed a special anniversary meal here. The menu is way above the usual pub fare, offering something just that bit different. We had a pre-meal drink in the lovely garden and then enjoyed a wonderful in the comfortable interior. The lemon posset with a rhubarb sauce and melt-in-the-mouth citrus biscuits was superb. Service was also extremely... More

Friends took us out for a meal and you would only find this place if you was lost as it is in the middle of nowhere, but it is well worth going. The landlord is a most helpful and informative person and the staff are most helpful and the ambiance is excellent. In the winter they have a few chairs... More

If you want top quality locally sourced ingredients, great service and fantastic choice of drinks in a wonderful setting then you must visit the crown at Buxhall. The menu is not overally busy and this makes what is on offer that much more special. We live approximately 75 mile from here but would think nothing of driving here just to... More

A lovely meal and wine had here again (and a plethora of gins to choose from for pre-dinner drinks). My husband advises that this was one of the three best steaks he has ever eaten and my choices were great too. There is a really personal touch here. Highly recommended

Our date night choice and wow, this has to be one of our favourite places to eat this year. Very comfortable eating environment, service superb by every single member of staff, and the food delivered new tasting sensations! The strawberry chutney with the mini Camembert was divine and the smoking on the guinea fowl was terrific. Don't even get me... More
