My wife and self have just spent two nights at the Crown. We had a very comfortable room and both agreed that the food and service was excellent. But the thing that made our stay so memorable was the kindness and concern when my car let us down. ( I locked the keys in the boot) Nothing was too much... More

If you want a special meal with great wine.........this is the place. There is a high standard of food, beautifully cooked. The 'Famous' Crown Burger used to be with skinny fries, I at first was disappointed it came with 'Fat' chios....BUT NO!!! They were obviuosly triple cooked and gorgeous

We chose the Sunday night deal which was excellent value for money.The hotel is tastefully decorated and feels very homely,lovely colour schemes.We stayed in room 5 with a standard double bed(perhaps we should have upgraded to a king size).The room is at the front of the building so does have some road noise but not bad.The room had a good...

We had dined here about three weeks before and were blown away by the quality of the food, of particular note for my husband was the ham pate starter, (a special - and it certainly was!), the pork main and for me (the resident vegetarian), the Mediterranean vegetable roll, finishing with the Creme Brulee and chocolate Mille Feuille - (to...

My friend and I decided to have a catch up meal in the lovely Bildeston Crown, it was the first time I had eaten there and I wasn't disappointed. When we first arrived we asked if it was possible to make us elderflower Procesco, it wasn't a problem for the staff and they were delicious. Unfortunately, they couldn't find our... More

We stayed at The Crown on their Sunday night deal, which is amazing value. The staff were lovely and the rooms were fantastic. Everything was very clean and well kept. We had an evening meal and breakfast, which was fabulous. They were not very geared up for gluten free but did their best to get around that. A delightful place... More

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. The homely and cosy feel of The Crown makes you feel very at ease and relaxed enough to enjoy a drink in the bar and I never feel awkward eating alone in the restaurant. Even the... More
