First impressions were good, the building is lovely, nicely decorated, clean etc, we walked into the bar, the bar man was lovely, we were seated in the bar, got some drinks, a lady arrived early on to give us a menu, then after about 15-20 minutes she took our order including wine and we were gearing up for a lovely...

We wanted to go somewhere new in North Essex / South Suffolk. Trawled Tripadviser, came up with a short list and went pub crawling. Didn't get any further than the Crown. Very attractive building, beautifully restored - traditional with a modern twist, not twee. Attractive restaurant, attentive staff and great food. We had the ribeye steak - rare - cooked... More

I stay here regularly on business and as a female travelling alone it is nice when you feel safe and welcome in a hotel.

Warm welcome, smart and comfortable rooms, good food at dinner and breakfast, and nice sections of beers. These are the little gems it is good to find, and return to. All in all a great place to stay.

The food was excellent. The staff were very attentive. The only fault is that the hotel is situated right onto a road and the traffic noise can be a... More

We stayed here for one night as a getaway for our anniversary. The experience through booking the room and the service on the phone was great. Our arrival was fantastic - the room was lovely, tidy, clean and set out with nice extras throughout. We went out walking a series of local footpaths on a five mile circuit which was... More
