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.

It’s a very difficult time with Covid worsening ,that reflects amongst everybody. Food , service and the usual joyful banter with serving staff lifts the gloom.

The Crown is, in my opinion, excellent in all respects. The menu has some very nice choices and seems to cater for all tastes. I had a lovely meal accompanied by a glass of one of Adnams' Malbec (Guggenheim). The service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was great, despite the fact that the numbers of tables has been reduced because of the pandemic. Adnams have done a really good job of maintaining standards despite all the problems that they're faced with at the moment. Very well done

Excellent home cooked food, generous portions, and efficient friendly service. Food is seasonal and uses local ingredients. Parlour was cosy, the other dining room not so, but maybe a low background music would improve the ambience as due to spacing of tables it feels a bit empty.

Beef was a bit rare and fatty and thought with cronavirus tables next to us would be empty but had a couple sitting next to us bit surprised it was needed by the size of the hotel.

Very good meal. Food rated down by 1 star as monkfish main was a bit tasteless. Great side order of greens, and my husbands steak was very good.
