Have used this pub twice in last five weeks for lunch time food. Food was reasonably good , we had buffet, which is good for money. but. The dining room was freezing. Which in turn means your food gets cold very quickly. It was not a pleasant experience. . So needless to say we won't be going back until summer.the...

Home cooked Sunday carvery, 3 selection of meats on offer with all the veggies you could want. Two sizes of plates determine the cost of the meal. A very sensible sign over the carvery suggests to put on your plate only what you can eat, most diners took notice, some sadly did not. Good food, varied deserts on offer, even...

We stayed here with our dog on Saturday night. Firstly, can I say that the staff were lovely and friendly and we had no issues on that front. Some of the issues we did have - * We spent the latter part of the afternoon in the bar area. A few locals made up the crowd. They were very loud...

There is some confusion on the TripAdvisor search which seems to have combined Gayton in Norfolk with Gayton in Northamptonshire. This is the Norfolk Gayton Crown. We called in for lunch on a Wednesday and chose the buffet which was just under a tenner. For that you had a choice of a couple of meats, a pie and a vegetarian...

Our reservation was made before Christmas. On arrival (29 December) we were informed that there'd be no Carrots with our main course as 'it's been very busy [our table was for 7.30pm] and there are no carrots left'. Why no carrots? The dining room wasn't that full. Why not a substitute vegetable? I chose the beef from the Carvery [a...

We opted for the 3 course Christmas Carvery.. 3 decided on the Garlic Mushrooms however when they arrived they were served in a large breakfast bowl and they more closely resembled soup no nice presentation. 2 opted for the Smoked Salmon served on a bed of mixed leaves (shredded ice burg lettuce that had been sat around for a while)...

I didn't really enjoy this stay. We felt we were being scolded by the staff as we arrived late and made to feel guilty. The welcome was minimal. The TV was small. To be fair there was plenty of sockets in the room and the shower was nice but there was nowhere to sit. Now let me get to breakfast....

Disappointed at first that we were sharing a bathroom with another room (a mistake in our booking) but in the event it was fine. Cosy room, very comfortable bed. We did have to put the bed rug over the window though as there was a courtyard lamp directly outside the window. Slept very well. The pub itself was cosy and...

We stayed here for one night. The room was basic but clean.The pub is nice with no background music and good real ale. The food is all cooked fresh and good quality.We had garlic mushrooms which were very tasty but we did get bread envy when the table next to us got a large basket of sliced bread and we...
