About The Crown and Castle
The Crown and Castle is a restaurant with rooms and good quality, unpretentious food is at the heart of what we offer. With 2 AA rosettes, the 2018 Good Hotel Guide’s Editor’s Choice for Restaurant with Rooms and a Sawday’s award for Fabulous food, guests often cite the restaurant as a major reason for staying with us. Our wine list also wins many plaudits in the guides, not least for the reasonable prices.
Really great stay, with a special thanks to the host John, who was engaging and most helpful. The rest of the staff were equally hospitable, the food was good and the room excellent. We will definitely return
We were very impressed by the whole team at the Crown and Castle, nothing was too much trouble Thank you Beryl Dyer
Unacceptable delays for breakfast although it was refunded on the second morning due to the 45 minute delay
Wonderful place to stay and eat will return many times in the future
Very good, will visit again despite one poor breakfast experience when food not cooked properly (must have been a bad morning). Room as e4xpected, service coul;d not been faulted.
The cuisine and staff are superb! Orford is a beautiful village and a delight to visit.
Doggie table a bit isolated.
5th August Breakfast below standard, Toast was not browned, white with a bit of a crunch, mini croissants missed of plate, my wife's breakfast order muddled and the poached eggs not cooked properly and the glass of water asked for not forthcoming. Must have been an off morning, everything else was fine. Also, had somebody else's food and drink bill added to ours, but all resolved OK. will definitely go back again
Food is back to previous owners standard. The service needs to improve. Reception needs to communicate with Maitre D. Bar staff need to know about drinks. All in all a tighter slicker front of house approach is needed.
Good food, good atmosphere, good service.
Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Interesting, locally-sourced food menu - reasonably priced given the quality of ingredients. Staff were very attentive and service was good - food came too quickly in my opinion, however I understand that they had a second sitting coming in later due to social distancing restrictions and were perhaps watching the clock more than normal. Main issue for me was that all of our food, despite looking amazing, was underseasoned. With a little more attention to this, I would find little to complain about!
Great service , great food and relaxing atmosphere as always.
This is our 3rd stay at the Crown and Castle in beautiful Orford. As usual the food was excellent.
Thank you so much for your warm welcome back to Orford! We could have easily stayed a couple of weeks rather than just a couple of nights. You made it a thoroughly delightful time for us and our dog, even in spite of all the restrictions of the pandemic.
It is always a pleasure to stay here and even in these tough times . Everyone from John leading them do a great job Thank you
A lovely birthday meal, great food and service.
We had an excellent evening at the Crown and Castle. The menu was excellent, quality was superb. The service was attentive but not too much and the social distancing was well managed.
Menu was quite limited - a wider choice would be better, especially mains. Food was well cooked, nicely presented. Service friendly and prompt, felt safe in the restaurant.
Where do you get your staff??!! And what are they taking , to make them without exception friendly helpful and (even behind the masks) 'smiley'. They do you proud, all of them. (And the food isn't bad either!)
Given the restrictions imposed post lock down the staff were very helpful throughout
Despite having to implement all the new regulations it was still a very relaxed and enjoyable experience. The food was very good, as always, with a very good wine selection. High quality. reasonably priced
Having stayed and eaten at the crown and Castle many times we found the quality of food had deteriorated. Portion sizes...very small. Example, goats cheese and beetroot starter...it was difficult to find the goats cheese on the plate. It was apparent the focus has changed to acquiring profit rather than providing quality to customers. Menus are now very basic, low quality ingredients and uninspiring. What a shame to see the change in what used to be a great place to eat and stay.
It was lovely to be back after lockdown to this little haven of good food, friendly staff, relaxing room and peace!
