Review on The Buxhall Crown

This seventeenth-century village pub is tucked away near Buxhall's 'no sails' windmill. Inside, the Crown manages to combines the virtues of a thriving traditional hostelry (open fires, hop-garlanded beams) with the style of an upmarket gastro pub.

The food is a similar mix of old favourites and more modish offerings with pronounced Mediterranean overtones and a strong emphasis on local produce. Traditionalists might go for beer-battered fish with hand-cut chips or beef and mushroom pie with short crust pastry, while those with more cosmopolitan tastes could try seared scallops with black pudding and coriander-infused porridge, herb-crusted calf's liver with spring onion mash and Marsala jus or fillet of sea bass with saffron risotto, spinach and tomato dressing.

Prime steaks from the Scottish Highlands are given the char-grill treatment, and you can round it all of with a homemade dessert, Suffolk ice cream or a plate of British cheeses. To drink, there are real ales from East Anglian breweries plus a good choice of wines. The Crown also has the bonus of a secluded, heated patio with bags of room.
