6 of us had lunch today and whilst not expecting too much it turned out to be nice. We had baked ham whole meal sandwich, 2 tuna melts, egg mayonnaise baguette, 2 bacon and Brie baguettes. 4 of these were served with tasty chips, green salad and a little coleslaw. After a heavy night yesterday we all had water. The... More

Whilst visiting the area and out walking, my wife and I passed the Crown and decided to pop in. The view from the beer garden is fantastic and a real sun trap, even at this time of year. We weren't eating but those around us seemed to be enjoying their Sunday lunches. For us the surprise was that we had... More

I visited here recently on a Sunday and enjoyed a delicious roast dinner. I had the pork and my sister had the beef, both were lovely. Very tasty lunch. The atmosphere was good and the pub very nice. Service was good and the price reasonable.

We were nearby at Brantham Church in the morning, and fancied a bit of explore and lunch. We had a shared meat platter and a tagliatelli and drinks. Staff were welcoming, and food came quickly. The platter was huge - if we'd know we'd have ordered it for all three of us! As it was the staff packed the remainder... More

Booked a table in the Restaurant 14th August and arrived promptly. To start service was swift and efficient but it was clear they were understaffed and struggling. My mistake was not leaving then, but having eaten there before decided to tough it out. In the meantime a number of larger parties arrived, all of who wanted fast food (fried) and... More

Great welcome from enthusiastic young member of staff, everywhere seemed clean and welcoming along with reasonable prices. Sat in the garden with great view of River Stour where we could relax and take in the atmosphere. Have eaten here before and enjoyed the food too

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
