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.

I booked lunch for two as a birthday treat for a friend. We were rather early but this was no problem for the staff and we were warmly welcomed. We skipped a starter as it was lunch and we knew we’d probably have dessert. Mains were both v good (chicken with leek and calves liver) well presented and good portion sizes. We both opted for the banoffee mousse dessert which was outstanding, gorgeous combination of flavours and textures, in fact we were enthusing so much that a lady in adjoining table also ordered it and cane to the same conclusion re it’s perfection as a dessert! We ended with generous cups of good coffee. In all a delicious lunch with good service. Only possible points for improvement were that both daily specials were steaks (although the main menu is extensive so not huge issue) and possibly the bread could have been a little fresher with a choice of maybe two for a lunch in this price range. In conclusion a delicious lunch with the expected quality and attentive staff Thank you

Both my wife and I really enjoyed our lunch at The Crown, I’d requested a window table when booking and said we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We got the window table which had little celebration decorations on it. We were welcomed very warmly by our waitress who was very charming throughout our meal. The food was as always excellent, my wife had Merlot which was served at the correct temperature which she appreciated, she enjoyed it so much that we called into The Kitchen Shop and bought some for Christmas. Thanks to everybody at The Crown for a wonderful meal.
