My wife and I stayed here for our 53rd Wedding Anniversary and the buildings are beautiful, with large oak beams and open fireplaces in most Public Rooms and even in our Bedroom ! A great deal of money has been spent by the owner and local farmer, James Buckle, on making sure the Grade Two listed former Coaching Inn is... More

Had lunch here for my partners birthday with her parents, daughter and aunt and uncle. The service, ambiance and food could not be faulted with a reasonable selection of dishes that catered for a cross section of tastes including our young daughter which is often a problem in michelin starred restaurants. Steaks were cooked perfect to order and the fish... More

We know that the food is exceptionally good here, so we decided to stay overnight on this our third visit, to enhance the relaxation of the evening. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable. We took advantage of a 'deal' package for the room, dinner, bed and breakfast. We opted for the seven course tasting menu. This represents very good... More

Our first visit to the crown, an experience we thoroughly enjoyed. The food, wine, location and service where all superb. Suffolk has so many lovely restaurants - this is one of the best we have been to.

We booked the Sunday dinner bed and breakfast deal and we're not disappointed. The food here is absolutely fabulous, wine list is superb and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very quiet on a Sunday, so a little music in the bar/restaurant would have improved the atmosphere ...or maybe they just need better marketing?! Because otherwise, it is... More

We had the tasting menu this evening and it was fabulous. Everything was presented like a work of art. We tried things we have never tasted before and each plate contained tastes and colours to delight. The service was attentive and informative without being intrusive. It was expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

A party of us went to the Bildeston Crown for an evening meal. Knowing it was expensive before we went, we were expecting something out of the ordinary from other places we have visited. But it really wasn't. Firstly, the food is extremely over priced! Yes it's nice, but you could get it anywhere else similar for half the price.... More

From the moment we began planning this Celebration of my late Father-in-Law's life, we knew we were in good hands. Every detail was meticulously and sensitively catered for with professionalism and style. The canapés and buffet provided were exquisite and delectable. The service staff looked after our family and friends with smooth efficiency, never letting a glass run dry throughout... More
