Welcome to the Crown
During these difficult times, The Burston Crown is offering to deliver supplies and meals in the village and neighbouring Shimpling. You can also come by the 'shop' as we will try to stock some basic essentials. Call 01379 741257 for more information.
We are now open!
Please note our new opening hours and read our Covid–19 guidelines.
Bev and Steve welcome you to The Burston Crown. We are situated in the picture book Norfolk village of Burston, 21 miles from Norwich, 2.9 miles from Diss and 28 miles from Ipswich.
The Crown is a 16th Century building and features several open fireplaces, oak beams, an expansive beer garden and most of all a warm welcome from your hosts Bev and Steve (more about us later!).
We cater for a wide choice of dining and drinking experiences — all designed to offer you to chance to relax and enjoy yourselves. We have a roomy lounge bar with comfortable settees next to a lovely stone hearth. A public bar with a pool table and, our treasured pearl, a separate restaurant with both a la carte and bar menus available at all times.
We are proud to boast a chef ‘with a past’! Steve has toured extensively as a chef with rock and roll stars such as U2 and Bruce Springsteen amongst many other famous (and fussy!) musicians. This worldwide touring has allowed Steve to sample an eclectic range of cuisines and styles which we are proud to feature throughout our menus as well as some more traditional fare.
In the Norfolk tradition Steve insist on local, fresh produce and meats. These provide the core for a home-cooked, mouth watering bar menu that complements the continually refreshed a la carte menu.
Whilst Steve is slaving over several hot stoves, his wife Bev and her front of house team are here to help you with anything you need. Please do not hesitate to ask them about our ‘Special Occasions’ or absolutely any other event such as personalised menus, buffets or a barbeque in our lovely beer garden.
The choice is yours — pop in for a quiet drink, a more serious night out with friends, a relax after walking your hounds or a beautiful meal in our restaurant. Children are welcome.
Whatever you choose The Crown guarantees you a warm and wonderful place in which to relax and unwind. We look forward to seeing you very soon.
