We had a lunch here - beer was good, food good and reasonably priced, service and landlord were good and it was a pleasent experience. It was a Monday lunch time and there were only another couple and ourselves here. The pub is in the middle of no where so not totally suprised that they were not rushed off there... More

Having been to the Buxhall Crown on several occasions it never fails to deliver. A simple but well put together menu, food is always top quality and great friendly service. A lovely welcoming atmosphere with a country pub feeling with the log burner. You can always guarantee a great meal and we would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone... More

We reserved a table for Thursday lunch joined by two of our friends. I cannot praise the Buxhall Crown enough, we had a wonderful warm welcome both by the staff and the wood log burner, we soon settled around the fire with drinks in one hand and menus in the other. We were then shown into the dining room which... More

As soon as we arrived we were quickly attended to.Food arrived very promptly after ordering and was delicious. Serving staff were very pleasant and efficient, allowing us the right balance of service and privacy.We both had the belly of pork for our main dish which was cooked just right. We would certainly recommend The Crown to others and hope to... More

Popped into the Buxhall Crown for lunch on a Tuesday and it was a great meal. On a cold day we were greeted by the warmth only a wood fire can give, which promotes a really homely atmosphere. As a party of two we had a smoked duck starter, and a salmon starter that were both very good. We both... More

Visited here midweek with a friend, restaurateur was very quiet, which was worrying but a lot of people may not eat out after Christmas. Very warm and cozy setting, friendly staff who are not over attentive as some over reviews have said Food was amazing, I'm not easily impressed but the food was cooked perfect and flavours were spot on....

We couldn't fault the phenomenal food or the friends attentive service from both the lovely gentleman serving us or the younger girl running food. Well done, we'll be back.

The food at the Crown is good - but it should be at those prices. The service was over-attentive, which is really irritating when you're trying to have a chat with your family! But when we got near the end of our meal the waitress kept peeping out through the kitchen window at us to see if we'd gone yet.... More

Yet again had a fantastic meal here. The Christmas menu offered an excellent choice and our chosen dishes were well presented and full of flavour - in particular the scallops which we both had as starters. The open fire and low beams, together with attentive and friendly staff make this a perfect location for a fantastic evening.

We went on a Saturday night and had the last table in the restaurant at 8:15. We decided to arrive for 6:45 to have drinks beforehand and these were enjoyed seated at the fireside. A lovely place with a lovely ambience. Mein Host was extremely friendly and spoke a lot to us and we noticed how good he was with... More
