I took my friend here for afternoon tea and we were well looked after. No one rushed us and we were served earlier than the time I had booked. The sandwiches and cakes were tasty and well presented and we had a glass of prosecco on arrival.

My partner and I visited The Crown on a Friday night for dinner. We were both incredibly disappointed. We had pre-booked a table for 8.30 and waited for a while to be shown to our table. We were given menus but then had to wait a further 15 minutes to even order a drink. The waitress was rude and abrupt,... More

Enjoyed a good Sunday lunchtime meal here, we opted to go for dishes predominantly from the "And" menu extension all of which were well presented and thought out instead of one of the two Roast Dinner choices on offer mainly due to them both including Red Wine Gravy which I find fairly unpleasant (other restaurants do this as well, Why?,...

I have been here before, it's an attractively renovated hotel in the beautiful riverside town of Woodbridge. I enjoyed it last year, I was hungry this time,with a big bunch of friends and looking forward to it. That was lunchtime today and now several hours later I am still depressed and exhausted by the experience. I am fortunate to be... More

We had Bespoke at The Crown cater for our drinks party on Sunday. Wonderful canapes, brilliant staff - two lovely girls and a chef - charming, helpful, perfect in every way and at the end of the party - no clearing up to do, everything clean, tidy and even the bins emptied and the rubbish removed! We thought it was... More

Having been a regular drinker at the crown for over a year now; I finally booked a table for Sunday lunch. I dined with my parents and both the food and service were faultless. I had the char Sui pork with noodle salad followed by the venison. Both dishes were full of flavour and very well presented. The waitress who... More

The restaurant is really well laid out with plenty of space between tables so that you don't feel on top of other diners. The eating area is well separated from what was a rather noisy bar area, but we were only conscious of this as we were leaving. The menu is interesting and extensive, except in one area - there...

Little surprised by some of the reviews for the Crown, as we all had a very enjoyable evening with some very good food. The service was friendly and helpful and the timings between each course was just right. The scallop and pig's cheek starter was the most memorable dish of the night, though the roast partridge crown was pushing it... More

Really disappointed with the food and service last week. Had to wait agers to be seated, grumpy waitress. Waited agers for our drinks, and food even longer. One main was warm and not hot. No atmosphere. Waitress/waiters talking/giggling, one was even on his phone... Will not be returning. Very very disappointed with are overall exeperience.
