Our first visit to the Crown, although we only live 10 miles away !! we chose the three course menu which I may say was varied and excellent. When the starter arrived, the waitress explained the components of the starter, it was superb...the main was also excellent and well presented. The dessert was well presented and very tasty. The wine list was varied and explained well...we chose a Muscadet and for £24 was excellent.
I will definitely make a second visit....the service was good...and we were welcomed into the restaurant by Frank....who we had met at restaurants in Bury St Edmunds....he provides excellent customer service and I am sure is an added bonus to the Crown.
We had a really lovely evening for our Wedding Anniversary and I am sure will be returning to this lovely restaurant.
