Lynn-born owner Will Clayton is excited for the year ahead, having taken over the 280-year-old Grade II listed pub in August last year.He said: “Following a sympathetic refurbishment in January, we have reopened our historic doors once again and are determined to make The Crown & Mitre the destination pub in Lynn for food, drink, or a simple catch-up with friends.“Seasonal produce and delicious food will be the cornerstone of what we will be offering, and we aim to be the jewel in the crown of the West Norfolk culinary scene.”

“The nautical character of this incredible freehouse is something that we are tasked with retaining and celebrating, particularly with so many faceless and bland commercial pubs around these days.”
