Crown Inn Catfield
We are an unspoilt traditional village pub in the Broadland village of Catfield, Norfolk.
Real Ales and Home Cooked food by Scott. We are within nice easy reach from the popular Norfolk Broads, Norwich, Great Yarmouth, adjacent market town of Stalham and the neighbouring towns and villages.
The pub is centrally located and set back just off the road that twists and turns through our beautiful village. Our detached all year round holiday cottages are peacefully located to the rear of the property.
We have indoor and outdoor seating available and have a small function room available for private parties or meetings which can be reserved by contacting us.
The Crown has been serving pints since 1836 when George Watts was the 1st recorded licensee and was at that time worked by Coltishall Brewery. The pub was supplied by Steward and Patterson from 1841, Bullards by 1863 and by the Great Yarmouth brewer
Lacons Brewery from February 1932. The Lacons plaque was at sometime incorporated into the exterior of the building where it can still be seen today. Lacons Brewery was bought by Whitbread in 1965 and The Crown Inn turned into a Freehouse in 1993. We often have Lacon’s ale again as they have restarted and are brewing some original receipes.
We have 2 self catering holiday cottages:
Holly has a double bedroom and a double sofa bed, a kitchen, lounge diner, a separate toilet and shower room.
Pear has 2 single beds, a kitchen, toilet and shower room and a lounge with a double sofa bed making it perfect for families.
Both cottages have an outside seating range. Pets are welcome with prior arrangement.
Catfield is a perfect place for your North Norfolk occasion it is near to most every one of the attractions however sufficiently far away to still be genuinely peaceful. We have a post office and shop the pub. All Saints Church, which the majority of the building dates from the fourteenth century. On the rood screen there are 16 artistic creations of Kings. On the north wall of the sanctuary there is a tablet by the artist William Graves depicting a peepul tree at the top and a sheated sword beneath dedicated to Lt Thomas Cubitt who passed on in 1848.
