Staff at the Rose and Crown in Snettisham celebrate The Good Pub Guide award.

Two West Norfolk eateries  have been celebrated by The Good Pub Guide 2020.

The Rose and Crown in Snettisham, owned by  Anthony and Jeannette Goodrich, has been awarded Norfolk Dining Pub of the Year.

Praise was given for the pub’s “impressive,  imaginative food” and friendly staff.

Mr Goodrich said: “We greatly value our staff, both in the kitchen and front of house, who take such a pride in the business and create the friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere for which The Rose and Crown has become so well known.    

The Bank House in King’s Lynn.

“I am thrilled for all of them – they are a key element in winning this award and it is a great endorsement of their dedication and hard work.”

The pub sources its food from around Norfolk, with samphire and mussels from Brancaster, oysters from Thornham and crabs from Cromer.

Meanwhile, the Bank House in King’s Lynn, was named a UK Top Ten Town Pub for the fourth year running.

It was recognised for its “gently civilised but easy going atmosphere” and “excellent, imaginative food”.    

Michael Baldwin, of the Bank House, said: “We are delighted. The Good Pub Guide is the industry’s bible and this award is a real testament to the enthusiasm and dedication which we and our team put into the running of the Bank House.

“Our aim is to provide good food and a great bar, with friendly service in this wonderful historic and stylish building.”
