This was our first visit to The Bildeston Crown and we came away very impressed.
All the food was delicious; we couldn't fault it for presentation and taste. It's clear the chef and his brigade are talented and passionate about food. Visiting as we did on a Sunday, succulent Roast Beef was on the menu but what a huge portion it was - a bit too large! By contrast though, the vegetarian option of Courgette flowers etc, was a little too small!
Service was very attentive but it would have been nice if the waitresses could be a bit more relaxed and smiley!
In conclusion, we will be back! It was worth the two hour drive!
