The Rose & Crown, Snettisham
Idyllic rose-covered, village pub with 16 stylish bedrooms and award-winning food close to the stunning Norfolk coast. Children and dogs are very welcome too!
Dating back to the 14th Century, The Rose & Crown was built to service the builders working on the neighbouring church and has been wetting the locals’ whistle ever since – Amen to that!
700 years later, it’s become very much a destination pub and it’s not hard to see why. Awarded a place in the coveted Michelin Guide with a 2021 Michelin Plate and named The Good Food Guide’s Norfolk Dining Pub of the Year 2020 – these guys know what great cooking is. Choose between one of the three bars, garden room, formal restaurant or conservatory, each with it’s own charm including low beamed ceilings, twisting passages, hidden snugs, pamment floors and log fires.
It’s the type of pub where you could easily lose a whole weekend and with 16 stylish bedrooms, you can. It’s a great base to explore the North Norfolk coastline and definitely sits at the top end of B&B with its stylish coastal themed bedrooms, crisp white linen, fluffy towels and Molton Brown toiletries. For a small extra charge, children and well behaved dogs can stay in the same room.
We love the fabulous bold print wallpapers and quirky objects – injecting a spark of modern personality into this picture perfect, rose clad village pub. The light and airy conservatory is an excellent addition, coming into its own in the summer when the doors open onto the pretty walled garden. South facing, it’s a fabulous sun trap – perfect for enjoying a jug of Pimms and letting the kids run wild in the pirate themed play area. Named The Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice Family Hotel 2019, R&C is perfect for family get togethers and Sunday lunches (booking essential).
Norfolk eateries are spoiled for choice when it comes to local produce and you can expect to see fresh 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!
Still very much at the heart of the village, there’s a real community buzz. But don’t worry, visitors are very welcome and if you’re lucky, you might get to ‘mardle’ with the locals over a pint of the locally brewed Woodforde’s Wherry.
10 miles North of King’s Lynn, just off the A149 with 2 chargers for electric cars. Hourly trains run from King’s Lynn to London King’s Cross (1 hour 40 mins) so great for no hassle, car-free travel too.
