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.
Thank you for ensuring we were safe. Your social distancing and C19 measures were impressive. As always, the service, drinks and food were splendid. Lovely to be back
It took over half an hour for our drinks order to be taken and over 1.5hrs before we got our first course. We nearly didn’t bother ordering dessert because the service was so slow but, to be fair, when we requested that we only have pudding if it could be brought quickly they brought it very quickly. The waiting staff were lovely and really friendly but obviously too busy to serve quickly so they need more at busy times. The food was great, just a shame it took so long.
We had a lovely roast on sunday. Great selection of tasty veg and great gravy...it was our first pub roast since February and it definitely didn't disappoint. We'll be back again soon!
Service was excellent - very friendly, genuine and efficient. Food however was a a real let down. Roast lamb lacked flavour and was not as succulent as you’d expect for a ‘slow roast’; Yorkshire puddings were small and stodgy; gravy too gelatinous; vegetables too sugared; though good roast potatoes. At £17.50 expected a much better standard.
Obviously due to the current climate there are limitations but the team delivered a first class service We were looked after by a lovely team member I believe her name was Victoria ,she was fun ,committed and provided information as well as excellent service I appreciate that the room looked a little bare and lacked the usual bits and bobs hence the 3 stars for atmosphere but we all had a lovely time And I hope to visit again soon
Excellent Sunday lunch
We had such a lovely evening wonderful food wonderful service. It was super and most importantly we were able to celebrate my daughters birthday at the Crown. A family tradition
Really great food enjoyed by both the adults and the children (there is a children’s menu available). Friendly service. Nice to be able to choose from a range of Adnams’ beer and wine (it’s not limited to adnams though).
First class in all aspects of service and food quality
We had a super meal, best at the crown in years.
Lovely hotel with very helpful and considerate staff. Food is superb and we'd definitely stay at The Crown again.
Excellent food. Excellent service. Great atmosphere. We will be returning as soon as possible!
We really enjoyed our evening at The Crown and everyone thought their meal was delicious. We were the second table to arrive at the earlier sitting so we were surprised the food took a long time to come out but the quality of the meal was excellent so this made up for the wait. We look forward our next visit when we are up here later this year.
Delicious meal and felt very socially distanced from other tables. Great service too
Absolutely delicious greens in garlic side. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal as I always do.
Lovely lunch, good service however I did feel a bit rushed to order our food. Had to ask for another table as our original table for two was too close to the kitchen and I felt that we had been tucked away in not the nicest part of the room, we were shown to a table for two by the window which was much nicer. I would go back again though.
Excellent evening out!
Wonderful Sunday lunch
It was pretty empty mid Sunday afternoon, but the staff were still friendly and efficient. Better Broadside experience than in The Swan.
Lovely meal and great service. Maybe some back ground music would be nice.
Lovely venue for a meal and a few glasses of Adnams’ excellent ales.
Really nice food and great choice on the menu. We were there for lunch and very pleasant waiting staff. We did wait 50 minutes for our food to arrive but appreciate that in these difficult times allowances need to be made.
The roast beef Sunday lunch is heaven sent.
Delicious food. Great service. Richard, Manager, very helpful and our waitress brilliant!
