Stayed for a Saturday evening on 30-Aug-14. It is the epitome of a Gastro Pub. A beautifully upgraded coaching inn which offers an excellent dinner followed by a night in comfortable well appointed bedroom. On the evening we stayed there was a noisy party in the bar, but we were shown to a quieter corner just inside the restaurant for... More

We stayed two nights at the Bildeston Crown and would go back if in the area. The staff are very welcoming and our ensuite room was very clean and comfortable. We understand that the chef is new and we can recommend his cooking. Both evenings our meals were delicious and well-cooked.

Someone with a head for business, now the days of men ambling along to the pub for a pint of mild and bitter and a game of shove halfpenny are but a distant memory, has refurbished the Crown at Bildeston as a restaurant with rooms. The overall effect is modern and elegant. I cannot quite see how and why so... More

Our first visit here, but certainly not our last. Beautifully maintained old building, lovely restaurant and excellent staff. although we were booked in for dinner, we arrived in time for a light lunch and their sandwiches were unique and lovely. Excellent choice for dinner and wine list. I understand the chef is new, long may she last. Breakfast really nice... More

Delightful small hotel. Like staying in someone’s home, albeit a smart, impeccably-clean, very comfortable home. Dinner and breakfast were delicious and generous, and executed with country charm. Room (number 2) and bathroom was large and well-equipped, although I noticed, when visiting my travelling companions, the rooms were all quite different from each other. Cozy, well-stocked bar stayed open late. Would... More

Stayed for just one night and despite arriving very late (around 11pm) was greeted very warmly and was able to have a beer and then tea was then delivered to our room. Much appreciated! This is a perfect hotel/restaurant/inn that delights and charms from every corner. Everything you see and touch is top quality. The bed was so comfortable and... More

Having dined here on 3 previous occasions as food is good was very very disappointed this time and will now never go back or recommend to anyone!! We live in London where we are used to dining in high end/fine dining restaurants on a regular basis so maybe our expectations are too high however we have never experienced anything like... More

We stayed two nights at the Bildeston Crown and were very impressed by the overall experience. When we got to our room we noticed there was no facilities for making tea or coffee. We were told this was because complimentary tea and coffee were served 24 hours a day on request! However, as we are early risers we requested to... More

Popped in for a drink and ordered a large glass of Shiraz off the wine menu displayed on the bar which had it at £6. Disappointing to be poured a different Shiraz at £9 a glass, without a word from the bar tender. Large wine + Peroni @ £14.50 is top end London prices. Nicely decorated inside on the plus... More

Our room was large, with a powerful shower over bath, and nice elemis toiletries. After a freshen up we went down to the restaurant for dinner. We chose the tasting menu, which was spectacular, and although we were a couple of hours at the table, there was no undue delay in serving each of the six or seven courses. I... More
