“A very warm welcome”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

You will have to try hard to beat the Rose & Crown in Harpley, Kings Lynn.
After a day following the East coast, what better that a warm and inviting local village pub.
It certainly warrants it's top 10 status for the area and we weren't disappointed.
Admittedly we timed it just right, they were very busy but managed to look after 2 weary travellers (including 3hours in the wonderful Cromer Hospital!).
Thanks for some fabulous food, a lovely drink and the genial host!

“Fantastic Sunday lunch!”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Cannot fault the Sunday lunch here!
Roast beef was plentiful and at least 5 veg to go with it!
Desserts are all homemade which is great to see!
Service was great from start to finish and very reasonably priced too!
Beer is kept very well too!
Definitely worth a visit!

“Saturday lunchtime”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Popped in for lunch one Saturday. my elderly mother and I wanted a light lunch and had the starter size prawn and crayfish whilst my other half had the pulled pork and chicken burger. This was a good sized portion with great chips and hot crispy onion rings.
Traditional village pub with extensive menu of reasonable price.
Very good on service.
Have been recommended the Steak Night on a Tuesday.
Will will return.....

“Book specific tables!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

The Rose and Crown is a lovely country pub with delicious food and welcoming staff. We feasted on game – so much that we could hardly finish our dinners the portions were so generous. The staff were very friendly and attentive, making top notch suggestions.

If you can go here do but ask where you’ll be seated. I suggest trying to be in the old section of the building. We ended up in the garden room which is completely at odds with the rest of the pub décor. It had none of the charm but the staff did make up for it and we did book last minute.

Had we booked ahead and managed to be in the old section of the pub I would have given a 5/5 for Atmosphere and 4/5 for Romance.

“Curry Night”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Well done to Ian and his catering team, posted a very good comment on Sunday Lunch's a while ago. Whilst passing on a Thursday evening popped in for a drink, the food being served made me hungry and enjoyed a delightful rogan josh.
