We had a delicious lunch on the terrace on Saturday. The menu was perfect and not over priced and the waiting staff were really lovely.

I had the Burger which was nice, however my wife had the fish and it was mostly batter. Not impressed with that.
Over all it was OK but could have been better for the price.

It was lovely to be able to go to the pub after so many months closed in lockdown . We sat outside on the heated terrace and had dinner . It was delicious . The service was very good and the atmosphere was buoyant

Fantastic food and very good service. A delight to taste Rav's food again. Such a shame we were the only ones there - Covid is really harming these friendly rural pubs. They went to a lot of trouble to serve just the two of us and really deserve and need our support. Unreservedly recommend this place for fantastic food and great service.

We had a fabulous stay at the Hopton Crown. From start to finish, the small team we’re all attentive, courteous and friendly.

The room was lovely and quiet, nice decor and all the amenities we needed.

Our evening meal was superb! There’s a good choice of options for each course. Quality, presentation and taste was spot on. My partner said it’s one of the nicest meals he’s had out in a long while.

Not a huge choice for breakfast but there would be a suitable option for most people and the server was more than happy for me to swap items around.

Overall, a great and much needed break away for us. We will be recommending to others.

Thank you Hopton Crown!!

It was ok! Expensive for pub grub.
The photos in pictures must have been done by a good photographer. The room was dated. We were seated in the middle of the room which was a little uncomfortable. The waitress brought me some vinegar and they were empty sachets. Which under circumstances it wasn't good. Had the fish and chips the fish was big and quite greasy. The peas were just a puree. The chips were just large frozen chips.

Covid 19 measures well practised and as low key as possible. Food and service excellent, one of the best meals we've had recently. It is a very nice pub, tastefully decorated and friendly atmosphere. If we lived in the area we would go back time and time again.

Very good service and great food, one of the best fillet steaks I’ve ever had and my wife’s fish was cooked to perfection.
Tables in the main part of the pub were well laid out with plenty of social distancing.

My father is very elderly and in a wheelchair. We had a lovely table by the window. The staff were all very genuine and helpful and did not rush us at all. As the dining room filled service obviously became slower so we were pleased to have been there early.
The only criticism from my father had was that there was no chocolate with the coffee! Thank you, it was great food and felt very ‘safe’.

We had dined here just after the initial refurbishments, but had had such an awe full meal we hadn’t visited again, when we saw the chef had moved from the Baiting House we thought we’d give it another try. We were not disappointed.
Even with the Covid restrictions we had an enjoyable relaxing evening, being able to have a drink by the bar & not hassled straight to our table.
The meal we had was beautifully presented, very good choice. Couldn’t fault our meal (mackerel pate, whitebait, duck breast, crab & shared a pudding) except one tiny criticism could have done with a little more bread with the pate.
Will definitely be back again very soon.

Passed this place many times but never been in. Now I'm glad we have - great food and very friendly staff. We had mains and a pudding, both of which were well cooked and flavoursome. If you're of a nervous disposition then there are enough face masks and sanitiser to keep you happy. For the rest of us then be assured it still feels like a restaurant rather than a hospital that serves food.

We'll certainly be returning.
