The Crown Hotel Mundford

The Crown Hotel Mundford is situated in the heart of Norfolk’s Thetford Forest. Sitting opposite the village green, we offer an informal welcome to all, whether you are travelling on business or enjoying a more relaxing stay in the area. Dating back to 1652 the Crown has seen many guises over the centuries, in particular as a renowned hunting inn playing host to the local magistrates court. What is particularly unusual for this part of the country is that the Crown is built into a hill, where you can equally walk in on ground floor level to the bars and to the first floor restaurant & garden.

We serve food daily, from an extensive bar menu and specials menu of the day, using as much locally sourced produce as possible. All menus are available in the bars, restaurants and garden, where we welcome families. In addition, we are dog friendly in our bars, garden and accommodation.


The village of Mundford is close to four main travel routes, making it ideally suited as a base, whether it is for business or pleasure. The local towns are a short commute and for those wishing to experience Norfolk’s city feel, Norwich is just forty minutes away. The fine Norfolk coastline boasts beautiful beaches and nature reserves, and can be reached in under an hour.

Being located within the forest makes us an ideal place to come in for a coffee, then enjoy a walk and return for lunch. We welcome groups of all sizes, any day of the week and offer a menu which caters for all appetites.
