We have eaten in this restaurant many many times, and I agree with some reviews in that it can be a bit hit and miss, however I have experienced many more hits than misses! Staff always attentive, food well priced therefore recieve what I expect for the price, comfortable atmosphere for a casual lunch or supper (we only choose to... More

We stayed at the Crown for a one night break as part of a trip along the Suffolk coast. We arrived on a Friday lunchtime. The car park at the rear is relatively small but most of the spaces available are under cover and once the lunchtime trade had ceased there was ample parking. Reception is on the first floor... More

We visited the Crown for lunch and had a very good meal. All four of us chose the roast loin of pork which was on the Specials list. It was absolutely delicious with lovely crispy crackling and delicious vegetables. The meat was tender and succulent - we could not fault it. Two of us chose a dessert which were both... More

Lovely Sunday lunch (Pork with all the trimmings) and Adnans Mosaic....bliss. Couldn't fault the service that was quietly efficient. Good location on the High St and bookings advisable for school holidays and weekend

We booked this very late and did not realise it was half term! No wonder they had problems fitting us in, but they deadened made us feel very welcome as usual. Special thanks to Jenny and Ben in the restaurant who made us feel especially welcome. Already looking at non holiday dates in December!

My wife and I booked the hotel for two nights so we could have a weekend break plus Brewery Tour. Car park is small and gets very crowded at busy times with no area reserved for guests. Reception is closed outside of office hours so we had to find staff within the busy pub/restaurant area. Stairs to our room on... More

Not always easy to get a room or even a table at the time you want rather says it all. Corridor arrangement quirky, rooms (our's anyway) traditionally furnished ... rather like the town really. Scores on all fronts and the bed we had was just about as comfortable as it could have been. Take care driving through narrow car park... More

Booked only the day before, we couldn't have made a better choice! Room 11 (a upgrade) was spacious, comfortable and pleasantly decorated. Lovely big bathroom with bath and walk in shower. Bed/pillows - perfect. Dinner was delicious and we were particularly grateful to the waiter who recommended a wine to complement our meal. All the staff we met were delightful.... More

The only reason I have not given it full marks is a glitch at dinner. The main course took a long time to arrive nearly an hour and was cold. But the manager to his credit apologised, made sure the replacement was cooked straight away and deducted the food from our bill. When it did arrive it was lovely. Really... More
