About The Crown, Southwold

The Crown in Southwold is justly famous as a place to eat, drink and relax in a great atmosphere. The menu offers simple, outstandingly tasty dishes, unfussy and untampered with, made with the best quality, local ingredients.

With an extensive wine list, you will be spoilt for choice for wines to pair with your delicious dishes. Or you might prefer an Adnams cocktail or pint of Adnams beer.

Our chef and the team have a close relationship with local farmers and fishermen to ensure all our food and produce is as fresh, local and as seasonal as possible.

The Crown’s menu changes regularly, depending on what our chefs have brought in fresh that morning from our local suppliers. However, we do keep some of our house favorites on the menu at all times.

Under the circumstances (Covid-19) all ok. My wife had the Mussels but no Finger Bowl, although our waitress did apologise on behalf of her boss!!

Disappointing. Five small bits of dried up mackerel lost in a bed of greasy new potatoes with a couple of spinach leaves. Poached egg was ok! On arrival at table waitress spoke to quickly about scanning something. No good for us oldies! Come on Crown, you used to be excellent.

This was the first time we’d eaten out since before lockdown and the whole experience felt very safe. Booking online was really easy, the tables were socially distanced and the staff were friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely lovely. If we were in the area for longer, we’d definitely book again.

If you are going to have the menus online only, then you must make the wi fi accessible.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Crown for a special meal. The food was delicious. The overall cost was a little expensive but worth it for a special occasion. The staff were very busy so the food and drinks took time to arrive. We didn't mind as we were not in a hurry. We recommend booking ahead at peak times or you may be part of the queue at the door. Southwold was lovely.

Every where was being cleaned as guests left. Staff wore masks and very polite prompt service. Relaxed atmosphere with attention to detail with service just right. Good was amazing as was presentation and portion size. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time as a family and were not rushed, would certainly book again and recommend. Thank you to the team at the crown who worked so hard to make our visit a pleasant and memorable one.

So nice to be back! Food was as good always . Service so friendly. Just a little less atmosphere than normal due to sitting in the other room and spacing x
