|In September 1933, Albert Einstein was brought to live in a small hut on Roughton Heath after fleeing Nazi Germany. Commander Oliver Locker-Lampson MP offered Einstein a refuge in Norfolk before he travelled to the United States. While here, he was sculpted by Jacob Epstein. A blue plaque commemorating Einstein's stay can be found at the entrance of the New Inn public house in the village. On 7 October 1933, he set sail from Southampton, for a new life in the United States and never returned to Europe. So there you have it, folks.|

|Roweton. Old English. Village by the stream. |

|Incidentally, is that pronounced "Rawton", "Rooton", "Ruffton", "Rofton", "Roeton", "Routon" or none of these?|

|Well, ladies and gentlemen, there's not a single coherent comment on this pub here, and yet it's an impressive, traditional, flint-and-pantile, period Norfolk building, sporting the Casque Marque sign.|
Its website says that it doubles as a Chinese restaurant too.
Given its billing and its location, I'd have thought that it would be pretty successful. Perhaps it is, but the locals are not very internet-familiar, or just a bit shy?
