The Crown Hotel in Mundford fits easily into a aged drunk category. There’s a darts board, timber burner, creaking beams, indifferent wine, a ditzy barmaid and a arrangement of whiskies that flattering many accounts for a whole essence of a cosy bar on a right as we travel in.

Dating behind to 1652, a building was once a magistrates’ court.

Today, it’s a take-it-as-you-find-it arrange of place, a frigid conflicting to Home Counties chi-chi.

On arrival, we sidestep a bets and ask to see a room before signing adult for BB. Almost 10 mins after we’re still watchful for someone to arrive with keys.

Finally, Miss Ditzo, who doesn’t do many in a approach of tiny talk, shows us dual bedrooms in an adjacent building. We dedicate to a smaller one since it has a new lavatory and overlooks a encampment green, with a paper shop, hairdresser’s and chapel.

Mundford?

It’s on a corner of Thetford Forest in Norfolk, down a highway from a Cromwell Tank commemorative to a 7th Armoured Division (the Desert Rats) formed here in World War II.

There’s a lot of brownish-red going on in a room and a pillows are like slabs of lard, though it’s spotlessly clean. For atmosphere, we lapse to a pub and sequence prawn cocktails and beef and kidney pie.

Quantity is generous, peculiarity controversial and not many people are in.

But it’s a Monday night, and we’re gratified to be here – since this is a arrange of place a skill association would adore to cackle adult and reinstate with half a dozen ‘luxury flats’ with a assistance of a pale selling aphorism such as ‘live a future’.

We’re chuffed to be tasting a bit of a past, frankly.

Which is because we sequence boiled bread with my eggs in a morning. The cook (a former soldier) doubles adult as a waiter and wants to know if a eggs are accurately right. They are.

The Crown is not accurately a end hotel, though some-more than adequate if you’re flitting through.
