“…a rare beast: a thriving local pub with contemporary rooms and great food”
Country Living


We love food…
…and we are delighted to be The Good Food Guide’s Norfolk Dining Pub of the Year 2020

The same delicious menu is served throughout The R&C. The menu changes regularly and we also offer daily specials.

As far as possible all our ingredients are sourced locally, making full use of the wonderful produce of the area in season: mussels, oysters and samphire from Brancaster, asparagus and strawberries from local farmers, herbs from the allotments of Snettisham and game from the gentlemen in wellies in the back bar!

With our many different eating areas we are happy to welcome larger parties.

Teas, coffees and cakes are available all day.

Need a night off from cooking? We now also offer a delicious takeaway menu.

On Sundays we offer a terrific traditional roast lunch from 12 noon until the roasts runs out, £15.00 and £5.75 for children. This is very popular and booking is essential.

The Rose & Crown’s famous Great British Breakfast is open to non residents.

We welcome children to The Rose & Crown with open arms, and offer a quality children’s menu, with all dishes cooked from fresh. We can also offer smaller portions of most dishes on the main menu.

Contact reception to reserve your table.


and we quite like a drink too!

Built in the 14th century to cater for the builders working on St. Mary’s church up the road, The R&C has been looking after thirsty drinkers for around 700 years!

The Rose & Crown is still a village local drinking pub at heart. We take great pride in our ales, which include Adnams, Woodforde’s Wherry, London Pride plus a regularly changing guest ale.

We have an excellent wine list put together by an independent wine merchant friend of ours, and offer a large number of wines by the glass.

On a sunny day there is no better place to enjoy a jug of Pimm’s with friends than in our lovely walled garden.
