Delicious food with a good choice and well presented and reasonable sized portions. Dining room a bit cramped. Pretty decent value but not cheap.

Very good meal for a small town venue. Both the mackerel terrine and t-bone were excellent. Portions sizes were more than generous and the atmosphere was a modern minimalist aesthetic which I enjoy. Prices are on the higher side for the location but felt like money well spent.

Having lived near Woodbridge we have used the Crown many times but not since it was refurbished some years ago. When a voucher covering lunch with a complimentary glass of wine was published in our local paper we decided to pay a visit. My initial impression was not good. The member of staff behind the bar disappeared to lay a... More

The waitress said there was no booking for us. We asked the boss he said they have had trouble with the computers. They made up the table. The waitress who was dismissive turned out to be the one that took the booking but she was t going to admit it key alone apologise. Bearing in mind the price as well,... More

I do not recall ever having this conversation or ever being made aware of this having happened I would be "the boss" described so this seems very strange to me. I am unaware of any time were we had any problem with our computers. None of the team recall this and if we had it would not have been an... More

I don't think that I have had food served so hot in my life! Piping hot as the Brits would say. Very good food, served with a smile, in a delightful and clean restaurant with appetizing menu options. I personally had the fish which was way too salty, but my family members had the homemade burgers and one beautifully presented... More

My partner and I visited The Crown back in March and thought it was average. The food was good but service was cold and slightly unfriendly, we even felt abandoned towards the end of the meal! However this time!! OMG We just had to join Tripadvisor to say how impressed we are with The Crown. We were warmly welcomed and... More

We were hoping for the best but the customer experience was at best mixed ( both for some food but especially service ) and we will not return , which is a shame as we have been reasonably regular diners at times (and in the past have had some excellent meals ). In fairness , there have also been some... More
