Had three meals there in July also celebrated my husbands 70th birthday there, all of our guests loved the food and venue. Nice views over the river, Manningtree is a lovely village and very close to Flatford, Constable Country.

Visited Manningtree for a few days but have been going to the Crown for several years so it was like a breath of fresh air. We had the fish platter which was excellent. The staff were all attentive and very helpful. The landlord enquires about our food and the comment from the other lady was probably a bit unfair. In... More

We visited The Crown for lunch recently and decided to try the fish sharing platter. I must say it was delicious. A nice range of fish beautifully presented. The flat bread made a lovely accompaniment. The only thing that I might change is a little less of the olive oil drizzle. I do have a slight issue with the landlord... More

This place is the same as the Riverside Restaurant and Bar so I will write essentially the same review. Good honest food sums it up added to great host Tony and his attentive staff. I went on my own but had a marvellous steak and some great wine. As other contributors have said Don't be mislead by reviews before Tony... More

Been the best roast we have had for long time. Lovely friendly attentive staff and good value for money for such good quality. Will definitely coming back. We asked quite a few questions over food and wine and rather than make it up they spoke to the right people to get the right answer first off.

Lovely pub under new management. We called in for a late Sunday lunch and were very impressed. We shared a ham hock terrine - very good. I had roast beef and my friend had chicken. There was plenty of tender roast beef and half a roast chicken! Fresh veg, boiled and roast potatoes and a lovely fluffy Yorkshire pudding. The... More

First time in since the staff change, and what a breath of fresh air. A decent menu (I think the old one had been unchanged since 1988) and most impressive of all, very attentive, fast service. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the starter dishes were taken away just as we finished and the main course arrived 1-2... More

Had our second meal at the new crown. Both times food excellant and great atmosphere. Landlord is everything that you would want as a host and is assisted by his excellant staff. Will definitely be eating there more often.
