Roast Beef was amazing (and I am fussy on roast dinner other than...

We took our young grandchildren here for lunch, one old whom has a serious medical condition and cannot have gluten. They allowed us to say what we would like her to eat. Even though it was not specified on the menu they prepared it specially, which we appreciated. We last are here 4 years ago, when we thought the place...

We enjoyed a leisurely Sunday lunch one weekend before Mother's Day. My 91 year old mother can be difficult to please but she, my daughter (23) and brother (63) had roast beef and all declared it extremely good. I enjoyed duck and couldn't fault it. We all had puddings, again no complaints. The waiting staff were very good, helpful and...

The only thing...

We use the Crown a lot, both socially and occasionally when I am entertaining Customers. Just lately I have been three times in quick succession, two Birthdays and one business lunch. The first occasion the food was very good but service very hit and miss but overall a good experience. The second visit again was good but the same menu...

Weather was so nice that a drive out was required - we decided to go to the Crown as we had not been there for a long time. Too long in fact when we got there and saw what was on offer. First up was a glass of Adnams fizz. Lovely, crisp and cold - then it was down to...

We stayed here with a Travelzoo deal. We had 2 rooms with my parents in one room & my partner and I in the other. We had a gorgeous double room with a lovely big bathtub & spacious shower. The room shouted seaside town, it was adorable. The bed was honestly the most comfy bed I think I've ever stayed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An exciting and intimate combination of small hotel, wine bar, pub and restaurant, Adnams Crown Hotel is always buzzing with a lively informality. The food is famously good and the wine list wonderful. You don't have to take our word for it - The Crown is an award winning hotel and was named Suffolk Dining Pub of the Year by the Good Pub Guide in 2013 and 2014. Situated on Southwold's High Street in Suffolk, The Crown is at the heart of activities, and just a few moments away from the seaside. Relax before lunch or dinner in our snug 'Back Bar' with a pint of Adnams famous beer. Free WiFi available throughout the hotel. ... more   less
