Two good main dishes. Chicken was top quality but the Steak (cross cut rump) was even better and a good bottle of claret all at a decent price. Waitress was new but very good and made for a fun night out. Going back on Sunday for a roast.

We have eaten here many times over the past few decades - and in the past we were very pleased with our meal(s). We ate lunch here recently as guests. There were 5 of us in all and we ate off the normal menu. My starter was a chicken Waldorf salad (Nice, but nothing special) , followed by the daily... More

We stayed at The Crown on a Sunday evening for one night. The hotel was clean, friendly and efficiently run. The room we stayed in was very clean and spacious, with two large windows. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was well equipped and clean. We cannot fault our stay apart from a few noisy sea gulls!... More

I visited here in late July to celebrate my dad's birthday. I have been before and our room and the service was as good as usual. Our room (six) was big and had all the facilities you need - wifi, docking station, dressing gowns, safe, toiletries and more. The bathroom was not as plush as my dad's (11 - which... More

Southward is a quaint place to stay. The staff were very helpful and the accommodation was of a high standard and the bed was very comfortable. We had very good DBB deal. Lovely shops nearby and you can get the ferry across to Walberswick. Lovely freshly made fish and chips near ferry crossing.

My wife and I stayed here for one night whilst visiting the area. We stayed in room 10 which is tucked away to the rear but well appointed. Room service breakfast was a welcome bonus but the room would have benefitted from an electric fan. The service and cleanliness in the Back Bar let the place down badly.

We had a mid week stay for one night. The room was lovely, very nicely finished and lots of little personal touches. Even a couple of books to read. The food was fresh, and very tasty. Can't wait to go back. Lovely fresh adnams beer on tap as you would expect.

Two reasons for visiting Southwold. One. My wife was booked on a Adnams Distillery Tour to make her own Gin and, two, I wanted to visit a few old haunts (pubs) around the Town.. We booked the Crown, mainly because it is in a central location. A quaint comfortable rabbit warren of a hotel with friendly, helpful staff. A nice... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
An exciting and intimate combination of small hotel, wine bar, pub and restaurant, Adnams Crown Hotel is always buzzing with a lively informality. The food is famously good and the wine list wonderful. You don't have to take our word for it - The Crown is an award winning hotel and was named Suffolk Dining Pub of the Year by the Good Pub Guide in 2013 and 2014. Situated on Southwold's High Street in Suffolk, The Crown is at the heart of activities, and just a few moments away from the seaside. Relax before lunch or dinner in our snug 'Back Bar' with a pint of Adnams famous beer. Free WiFi available throughout the hotel. ... more   less
