My wife and I popped in for lunch last year. We were surprised at the warmth of the greeting, the quality of the delicious food and the surroundings which were comfy but had some rather quirky art which we both appreciated. This time we came for a weekend stay with our labrador Cosmo. Sadly Cosmo has had a tough time...

This was our second visit to this dog-friendly high quality hotel with garden rooms for guests with dogs. We loved it. The accommodation in the garden rooms is a very high standard with attention to detail such as fresh milk in a vacuum flask for your tea or coffee, lovely fresh biscuits and even home cooked treats for the dog!...

We've been staying and eating at the Crown and Castle since before Trip Advisor was a gleam in someone's eye - it has never let us down. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful - dog-friendly too with thoughtful touches provided for the mutt. Highly recommended.

We booked the Crown & Castle for a 3-night short visit and stayed in one of the Garden Double Rooms. The package deal included 2 x nights evening meal. We both found the food to be excellent and certainly very enjoyable. So good were the meals that we elected to have our 3rd night's evening meal at the C&C rather...

I had the delicious smoked salmon and the house salad was so good. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for lunch. We have always had great food and and a friendly welcome...

Stayed at the Crown and Castle for 3 nights with our Rhodesian ridgebacks. The rooms were warm, clean and fresh and everything was catered for in terms of the dogs. The food is delicious and the restaurant provides a warm, relaxed and homely feel. It is not our first visit and it is great to return to find it being...

We were recommend this hotel as dog friendly and it was certainly that. We had a garden room and our dog Ben was left a bag of cheese tasties. Staff were all very friendly and the food was very good. The attention to detail by the managers was very good. Our waitress spilled some coffee onto the sauce and the...

Thank you so much for your kind comments. Sadly we have the same staff costs and VAT charges as any London restaurant and we only use the best ingredients it is inevitable that our prices will be a little higher than pubs which make use of frozen ready meals and the microwave.

The Crown & Castle is located in the centre of Orford and a short walk down to the quay, a particularly attractive spot. The three days were well organised with much attention to detail. The staff very attentive and friendly and the food was excellent and a great wine list with highly amusing comments by Ruth Watson. Our room (3)...
