We stayed here for one night to get away from the hustle and bustle of London as a birthday treat - and absolutely loved it! The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the room was delightful (we stayed in room 3) - tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, and the bar / restaurant area was lovely: lots of open fires and comfy...

We love 20 minutes from The Crown but stopped going there a couple of years ago because it became so pretentious. We had very good reports of the new management team and so decided to take two very good friends there, always a worry. What a joy, a wonderful maître de, excellent well balanced menu, good wines and a relaxed,... More

This was the first time we have been here, and this is somewhere that we could consider returning to. Arriving the staff were welcoming, helpful and stayed so throughout our stay there. We loved the room, the kids liked everything about it, staying on camp beds was a great experience for them (they have stayed on them on previous stays... More

the food is fantastic, bordering on Michelin standard. The room is london gastro pub style, and service is efficient and friendly, a gem in the Suffolk countryside. Check this place out, you won't be disappointed.

If we wanted a treat we would always go the the Bildeston Crown. It was really special, not cheap but for a special occasion the perfect venue for us. We liked the different breads served before the meal and the desserts were superb to finish off a wonderful meal. However we have tried the Crown three times recently..a Christmas meal... More

This was the second time that myself and my partner had stayed at the bildeston crown and just as in the first visit it didn't disappoint us. We made use of the Sunday dine and stay offer, having stayed in room 6 before (which was fabulous) we decided upon room 10 ( another of the more luxurious rooms). The bedroom... More

Went for Sunday lunch on 7 December 2014. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. All four in our party ordered the beef as a main. Mine arrived smothered in gravy, which normally I don't mind, as I love it. But THIS gravy was vile. Tasted burnt and bitter. I had to scrape it off the meal in order to eat it.... More

We were a group of 6 couples booked for a Sunday dine and stay. All of us are seasoned travellers and have eaten/stayed in some top places. All were full of praise for this beautiful country inn/restaurant. The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful beyond belief - they worked a miracle to resolve many difficulties so that the males in... More

We stayed here for two nights and I feel compelled to write a review, which I rarely do. The staff were incredibly attentive- we were upgraded free of charge because of a party one of the nights, the rooms were fantastic,all the staff working here were friendly and polite. All in all, I couldn't have been happier with our experience... More
