Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have visited the Crown and Thistle a number of times and always enjoyed it. Last night it really exceptional: all 5 of us chose different dishes and they were all absolutely delicious. We shared green beans, also fantasticly cooked to perfection. The service was superb and friendly. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

We were on our way back south from Norfolk and popped in on the off chance. not far from the M11. Food was excellent nice cross over between pizza and Thai. Definitely recommend it. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Nice village as well.

What a disappointing evening we had at this Thai restaurant. From being rushed to our table, even though we were early, to sitting in a cold room, it was a really poor experience. The staff didn't seem to know what they were doing and the service was very rushed. The food was served in small portions and very average with not much flavour. Particularly bad were the tempura vegetables - 6 pieces of predominantly carrot and onion smothered in thick batter - completely inauthentic. Not much better was the side of broccoli which was steamed with what seemed like soy sauce poured over it. £5 not well spent. Other dishes were all disappointing. Will not be returning.

My husband and I were staying nearby so stopped for an evening meal. Booking a table online was easy. Staff friendly and the food was not only delicious but there was a wide range and good descriptions to aid choosing. Would recommend.

I often come here when I am in the area for work. It is such a professionally run, friendly and tidy place. The food is excellent and the service is so fast even when busy. The ales are kept very well and the ambiance excellent.

Visited for early evening meal whilst staying at Saffron Walden. Lovely food and excellent service in quiet village venue. I had a chicken green curry and my partner a prawn red curry. Both excellent. The rice portion was exactly right for me but my partner would have liked more, which reflects fact she comes from India where rice portions are typically (too) large for good health!

Six of my family ate at The Crown & Thistle last evening, and had a lovely supper - one of the best commercial Thai meals I've had. My daughter-in- law is Thai, and a trained chef so I have high standards! We met the chef, and she excelled with the food she provided us - my mixed curry was delicious and had a very generous portion of mixed meat and prawns. The young woman who served us deserves special mention as she was friendly and courteous throughout. The pub was very busy (a good sign, especially on a Wednesday) and for anyone interested in such matters, is a dog-friendly zone. We had a two month old baby with us, so we contributed to the general hubbub! Top marks to The Crown altogether

First time here. The food was fresh and fantastic. I have to say, I ordered a vegetable massaman and it was the best I’d had since visiting Thailand. I would highly recommend, shame we don’t live closer. Almost all tables full and no issue with service from the two helpful waitresses. The photos in Tripadvisor don’t do this place justice.

Really disappointed with whole experience. Clearly not enough staff for the volume of people booked in for food. 2 young ladies trying to do it all, an hour & half wait for a main, no apologies & no one overseeing or taking responsibility. Won’t be going back!

The Crown and Thistle opened up early to accommodate us for my mother-in-laws wake and made us feel extremely welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and the teas and coffees went down well very when we arrived. The staff were all very professional, friendly and helpful right from the moment I contacted them on the phone through to the end of the evening. The range of drinks is excellent and I would highly recommend this pub if you are looking for somewhere to hold a wake or indeed for any occasion. We look forward to returning to the pub again soon.

Visiting friends and I had a fabulous early evening Thai meal where, as seasoned travellers, they remarked how good the food was. Ella, our waiting staff was unobtrusive yet attentive. I’ve never disappointed when eating there. As testament to this, the restaurant filled as the evening progressed.

It’s been a little while since we have visited this pub. However it’s nice to find that the Thai food is still up to its tasty high standard.
