We arrived to a very warm welcome from Sophie on reception. The room was immaculate in every way with all the little touches that make this a real "home from home". Although it was a cold weekend the room was wonderfully warm. Gorgeous comfy bed and lovely bedding. Brand new modern bathroom with shower and bath. We ate both nights... More

Stayed here for a night with my husband whilst our son was having a house party! What a find! The hotel was very modern and clean. Our room was a standard room but was spacious with everything in it we could possibly need. The beds were comfortable as were the pillows which is important in a hotel, and the bathroom... More

I've just returned from a dinner for four at The Crown. The food was as sublime as the service was dismal; perhaps non-existent would be a better description. We had to ask for everything - including the menu. The evening was ruined for me and my guests... we would have had better service at MacDonald's and this is such a... More

Delicious food and friendly and efficient service are the cornerstones of our business at The Crown so I was very distressed to read your review. Clearly your experience was not up to our usual standards and we will identify the evening in question and make very sure that those problems are addressed. More

Situated in the pretty Suffolk village of Stoke-by-Nayland The Crown Inn is a beautiful modernised 15th Century building. Even on this miserable December lunchtime the place looked fantastic, helped by the well maintained gardens with amazing hedges in full winter flower. The interior continues in a high standard but the dining room lacks character with generic, corporate furniture that makes... More

We only visited the restaurant. We had a few teething problems with being seated at our table, although it was busy due to it being in the festive season. But the lady that we spoke with sorted the problem out quickly and was very apologetic. The food was lovely, very good quality and well presented. I would definitely eat here... More

Over the years I have eaten at the Crown on many occasions and never really had a bad meal there. Since my last review was some little while ago I thought a more up to date one was due. My Nephew visiting from Australia gave the perfect excuse for a family dinner at the Crown so we booked for Saturday... More

I'm very glad that The Crown was as good as you remembered it and that you were able to enjoy such a lovely family occasion. There's still time to sample our delicious festive menu but, if we don't see you again before Christmas, we look forward to welcoming you back in the New Year. More

We went to celebrate an 18th birthday and generally had a lovely meal - plenty of choice, with food well prepared, presented and served. Unfortunately the menu was ill described as all the meat was rubbed/prepared with garlic - a challenge for one of our party who has an allergy to it and not stated on the menu or verbally... More

Thank you for taking the trouble to give us your feedback. It's always a good idea to inform the Restaurant staff - or even the Receptionist at the time of booking - if anyone in your party has a food allergy as we will always try to accommodate our guests' dietary requirements. I'm so glad you appreciated our wine list... More

Been here many times, it never fails to please the foodies of this world. The menu is varied and always offers a choice of excellent options for all courses. The restaurant and bar staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Such an excellent pit stop after a mornings walk in the surrounding beautiful Suffolk countryside.
