Having been here twice before and finding it to be fantastic both times, scarlet and I returned full of optimism, firstly the room, we booked room 6 again, which in my opinion is the best room in the establishment, the bed is huge, very very comfortable, the bathroom is large and very nice, I believe a new shower had been...

We chose the Bildeston Crown for our staff xmas lunch for 2015 and were not disappointed. 9 of us chose different options from the xmas menu and all agreed that it was the one of the best experiences that we'd had in a long time - from the service which was first class, to the restaurant itself - we were...

Ever since my Ramsholt Arms disappointment last year when the Suffolk Life review was shown to be just another "puff" I have avoided places which have been featured so it was with some trepidation that we booked following but unconnected to last month's cheesy "puff" on this place. We have been before and stayed here and liked it. The management... More

This old timber framed pub in the centre of the most attractive village of Bildeston has been beautifully renovated and upgraded, it retains masses of character but is smart, elegant and spacious. Although we only had a bar snack lunch, there is an extensive restaurant with several interconnected areas again all elegant and spacious and the menu looked interesting. Our... More

Very easy to find in the centre of Bildeston and plenty of parking at the rear. Seperate hotel entrance so you don't have to traipse through the bar with your luggage and enthusiastically greeted by the staff. Room very impressive with super large bed, large fireplace and spacious, fully furnished bathroom. Considering the 500+ year history of the place, the... More

Good Afternoon Firstly can I take this opportunity to apologise for the misunderstanding on your afternoon tea. At present we have so many allergens to deal with in the restaurant trade, when you spoke to one of my colleagues on the evening of your booking the kitchen was asked to do an afternoon tea with NO egg and one no...

Before I start I am so happy Chris & Hayley are back home at the Bildeston Crown, we have missed them so much. Not many people think to write a review when they live locally but we really know how good a place the Bildeston Crown really is. Apart from always feeling welcome when we go to the Crown, today...

Spent Halloween night at The Bildeston Crown to get away from all the nonsense. Room 1 was spacious & quiet with all amenities. Had a sandwich in the bar which was fresh & filling. Diner was fine & the wine excellent and at reasonable prices. The young staff were great & service was pleasant.
