A Snettisham pub has been named as one of the top 10 taverns in the country in a prestigious new publication.
The Rose and Crown in Old Church Road is given the accolade in the 2014 Good Pub Guide, which was published last week.
The establishment is used to being singled out for praise. Previously it had been named Anglian Pub of the Year and Norfolk Dining pub of the year and it is also listed in the Good Hotel Guide, Charming Small Hotels and Alastair Sawday’s Special Places to Stay.
Owner Jeannette Goodrich said: “We are very proud to be named as one of the top ten pubs in the country.
“This national award fully endorses our strategy of keeping the Rose and Crown as a proper drinking pub at heart, with a large and loyal band of regular locals, whilst offering great food in a friendly relaxed setting, and 16 delightful bedrooms.
“It is a tremendous accolade for our manager Kim Tinkler, head chef Jamie Clarke and the rest of the staff who work so hard to ensure that the Rose and Crown continues to offer such a high quality product and service to our customers.”
A quintessentially English village pub, the Rose and Crown is a 14th-century building that was originally built to house workers on Snettisham’s church and can be found opposite the village cricket pitch.
