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.

Meal and wine were wonderful, however having eaten here regularly for past 5 years the only negative is that the cheese and biscuits that I ate for my final course has gradually SHRUNK so although cheese selection was delicious it did not represent value for money. Also the accompanying pickled grapes are disgusting, why can’t we have fresh grapes or sliced apple!

Thank you Mrs Hayes for your review, We appreciate your return custom over the past five years, and it is lovely to hear you had a wonderful meal.
