At a charity auction in May 2012 we bid for Din, B&B at the crown in Bildeston, all the money went to Great Ormand street, what a worthy donation.
Well finally on 2nd Feb it was booked and what a night.
We had won the bid and it was the tasting menu for 4, we arrived mid afternoon and the whole expieience was about you are here to relax, anything our staff can do please ask.
The food was amazing delivered with passion and attention to detail, a journey to be added to "the 100 things i must do before i die".
My two teenage daughters, one who will try anything, and the other who will try nothing, were both blown away by the food, the flavours, the presentation, the service were all second to none, well done team, you nailed it,
We had a tour of the hotel in the morning and were delighted to see that every single room is individuel and tells its own story, from room 6, the haunted room to 12, the mystry VIP insists he stays there when visiting the UK.
Probably the most attentive place we have ever stayed, and we have stayed at a few.
Make sure you complete your visit by seeing historic Lavenham only a few miles away,Enjoy!!!
