My husband and I ate here on the same night we stayed. We found the food to be good value for money. The service was very good. The main criticism we had was the number of flies that buzzed around - it was slightly annoying to have to deal with them while eating our meal. Our meal was lovely though,... More

Went to The Crown on Saturday evening for dinner, we had lovely welcome from the staff, they were attentive from the time we arrived until we left at 11pm. The thing we loved that all ingredients used are mostly local produce and of course very fresh. We had a fantastic three course meal, consisting of : Starters carpaccio of beef,... More

We had a lovely lunch out in the garden at the Crown over Easter weekend. The garden is a great place to sit out on a sunny day. The food was really good - in particular the Deben Mussels. There's a good wine list, and varied menu. We'll definitely be going back again!

It is ages since we had eaten at The Crown. The updated building and restaurant are very pleasant and the atmosphere was nicely busy for a Tuesday lunchtime. Our fennel and leek soup was really excellent and delicately tasted of it's ingredients. Soups are often overly salty with added stock, but this soup carefully avoided any such additions.

Friend and i went in for a drink. It was a busy jazz evening. Stood at least 15 minutes at the bar waiting to be served. Totally ignored. Several times all staff disappeared so nobody to serve at all! When I did get served , no apology. Drinks were very expensive.

Not quite sure that this is really a review of our restaurant but I apologise if you were not served quickly. If the team did leave the bar this would only be to deliver drinks to customers in the restaurant or bar area. As you mention this was a jazz night and the bar was extremly busy wherever possible the... More

Good location in this delightful town. Thought food was very slightly on the expensive side for smallish portions, but it tasted great. Ours was a lunch time. Might be more atmosphere in the evening.

crowngarth, General Manager at Crown Hotel Restaurant, responded to this review

Thank you for your review, as I am unsure which menu you would have had as we had a taster menu with small portions running at the time which was exactly what the name suggests it is difficult to comment. What I can say is that I am confident that our main menu and current set menu dishes are all... More

The Crown is a little gem that has has been tastefully refurbished in a modern manner. The food here is of an excellent standard and extremely good value. With great service and a decent wine list to go alongside the fairly extensive menu you could do a lot worse than pay this venue a visit.

We liked the Crown. The service and beer were good. Overall the food was good, though one dish wasn't cooked through, we were offered a refund on it. We would go back

We were new to Woodbridge and The Crown was recommended by a local boutique. Sadly we were not acknowledged by a member of staff as we entered and eventually found the courtyard at the rear of the building. The weather was amazing for April so we chose to eat outside. The service was slow and rather matter of fact, although... More
