Loved the food but very disappointed with the room which had small double bed; was noisy and I am 5ft 9inches and could not stand under the shower, it was too low. Fabulous dinner and breakfast but if you stay avoid the room we were allocated

We booked this Adnams hotel as we were doing a gin making course at the nearby brewery and it included ten per cent discount on the room rate.The hotel is old and the corridors and stairs etc are a bit worn and torn but our room was nice and had obviously been refurbished recently. Comfortable bed, nice ensuite shower all...

I have been visiting Southwold for about 40 years and have always looked forward to a couple of meals at the Crown. This time I was so disappointed. The service was inattentive and the food was not close to the standard I have had in the past. The restaurant was quiet ( I wonder why) but the staff were more...

We had a one night stay here last month and I'm afraid we were left with a somewhat bitter taste in the mouth for what we paid for our stay. The hotel is essentially a converted pub with the convoluted floor layout associated with that. The carpets leading to the rooms are, whilst I'm sure vacuumed, worn and grubby. Our...

We stay at this hotel when we go to the Latitude festival. The rooms are large and the decor is beautiful, elegant and understated. Always include the breakfast because it is really good value. The Eggs Benedict is calorific but when it tastes so good who cares. The staff are really helpful specially when recommending drink from behind the bar...

We stayed in Southwold over the Easter weekend and realised last minute that we hadn't made a reservation for lunch. I popped into the Crown and enquired, after a bit of shuffling around they luckily they made a table available. All I can say is FABULOUS ! Roast Beef was amazing (and I am fussy on roast dinner other than...

We took our young grandchildren here for lunch, one old whom has a serious medical condition and cannot have gluten. They allowed us to say what we would like her to eat. Even though it was not specified on the menu they prepared it specially, which we appreciated. We last are here 4 years ago, when we thought the place...

We enjoyed a leisurely Sunday lunch one weekend before Mother's Day. My 91 year old mother can be difficult to please but she, my daughter (23) and brother (63) had roast beef and all declared it extremely good. I enjoyed duck and couldn't fault it. We all had puddings, again no complaints. The waiting staff were very good, helpful and...

Having been to The Crown many times before over past 20 years I have had some really good and some poor meals. To be honest, nothing much really caught my attention on the menu, some mains I would be interested in but served with items I didn't find attractive or even interesting. normally I have difficulty choosing. The only thing...

We use the Crown a lot, both socially and occasionally when I am entertaining Customers. Just lately I have been three times in quick succession, two Birthdays and one business lunch. The first occasion the food was very good but service very hit and miss but overall a good experience. The second visit again was good but the same menu...

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
