The restaurant at The Crown was for many years our favourite place to eat - but not anymore. The food used to be close to 'fine dining' at a reasonable price but now the quality of the food is decidedly average. Today's visit included a shrimp and spring onion fritter where thick, greasy batter overwhelmed the filling, and an unnecessarily... More

Sunday lunch was very busy and our table of 7 felt a bit cramped in a corner. I didn't go for the roast as the choice was pork which I don't like or beef which was rib of beef and quite fatty and served fairly rare. Instead I had the sea bass which was fairly tasty but they had not... More

Whilst we enjoyed the food and atmosphere - it was bustling and busy - we all particularly enjoyed the opportunity to try wine from a much wider than average wine list. We felt prices for the wine were competitive enough to try something different.

Visited today based on a recommendation and the decor, location and food were all pleasant. We let them know at the time of booking that a small child (19 months old) would be in our party and no issue was raised. However, on arriving and asking for a highchair we were told they didn't have any nor "ever had". Instead... More

I read the reviews for this place and in particular the poor ratings as it always intrigues me how picky some people are. It’s a cosy, clean, well-furnished restaurant/pub/hotel not a top London eatery with a lovely menu which spoils you for choice. Our order was taken promptly and the food arrived soon after, looking and tasting very nice indeed... More

Oh dear. I hesitate to write these words because it is clear from other reviews that management does not take kindly to complaints, which in itself goes a long way to explaining our experience of The Crown. Admitting you have made a mistake is a strength not a weakness, and is a golden rule when dealing with members of the... More

We have stayed at this wonderful hotel several times now and each time our experience has been perfect. The setting is beautiful, with Dedham, Flatford Mill and stunning countryside right on the doorstep to explore. From the moment you walk through the door, you are made to feel welcome and comfortable. We always stay in the same deluxe room which... More

Three of us tried the £18.00 set lunch here, all tasting different dishes from it, and we were unanimous in our praise for this lovely place. Friendly service, no hassle, lovely views, and food of the very best and imaginative tastiness, using fresh produce and decorated with micro herbs, no need to order extra vedg. Delicate smoked haddock terrine, spicy... More

I personally really like The Crown at Stoke By Nayland and its in a great location. There is a lovely atmosphere and its a really nice friendly place and the staff are very considerate. The service is excellent and the food always impresses, although the menu is a little muddled. Upon my visit, the waiter was very courteous and gave... More
