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.

The meal we had was good but not exceptional I felt that the fish stew was slightly under cooked and under-seasoned, Staff were super, attentive but not intrusive. Drinks were nice as usual. Price....well certainly not cheap.

We had a lovely room with old beams and a view over the street. The room was very clean and well equipped. We ate in the restaurant and loved the food, the staff were attentive and friendly. The breakfast was probably the best we have had in any hotel we have stayed in. All in all we loved our stay and are planning to go back. Excellent value for money.
