“Great food lovely place”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 via mobile

If you like great food and great atmosphere this is the place to eat. Went here with my wife and her brother for his birthday and we had great service and great food would recommend to all. Massive wine list and they know what they are talking about and the menu is also large and many great options.

Dined here with friends on Saturday evening, having eaten here before I knew the quality of the food would be good but on this occasion not so good, the fries that came with the meals were heavily salted, surely it should be our choice to have salt, not some heavy handed chief, it spoiled what could have beena good meal, still a good place to eat

Lovely place, nice feel, great wine list, no brilliant wine list! First visit was very good last year, just a bit let down this time. Service very slow and cold, food average ( Yorkshire Puds like Cricket balls, roasties finished in the fryer). An excellent venue that could easily become average with complacency.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in March 2014 at the Crown. It's a small hotel in a beautiful rural Suffolk setting; with a superb, informal restaurant. Reception was friendly and efficient and all the staff were helpful and professional. Well situated for visits to Constable country and historic Colchester. As Arnie might say, "we'll be back".

Whilst staying at The Angel Inn for a couple of nights we decided to eat out for the second night at the Crown. This is also a lovely looking hotel, not quite the same relaxed atmosphere as The Angel but still very nice. I had the skate and it was very good. my wife had the mixed fish meal which she also enjoyed. The wine choice was good and reasonably priced. Service was quick, polite and friendly, can definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Just ate here, stopped at the hotel opposite.

A group of seven visited the Crown last night for a 40th anniversary celebratory meal. The evening was brilliant - the food was second to none, a short delay on the starter but otherwise faultless. A couple of us had asparagus to start, while everyone else went for quail. Extremely delicious was the overall verdict! For mains there was sea bass, pulled pork, freshly made chicken kievs and a salmon tart. Again, amazing flavours. We had a lovely spot with a sociable round table. Very friendly staff too really made the evening a good one for us all.

Arrived without having pre booking a table, although it was a busy Saturday lunchtime the staff were very helpful in finding us a table.
The rose house wine was good. The food delicious, my hubby had the skate and I had sea bass, we wouldn't normally eat dessert, however, the desserts menu was so tempting and delicious.
Would definitely recommend The Crown and can't wait to return.
