We ate at the Crown on a Saturday night. It was OK. I guess just pre Christmas it was busy with a few noisy groups. It was also very bright, not much atmosphere. The food was fine. I guess we'd had such great meals in the local pubs that the Crown was a bit of a disappointment.

Came across the Crown by chance as we had not been to Woodbridge before and had a superb lunch which had everything in terms of presentation, originality and taste. The service was superb and we would recommend the Crown without reservation. The Lunch menu was interesting and varied and not extensive, which is always a good sign. All aspects, whether... More

The Crown doesn't have a skerrick of a historical feel left about it but if you want a pub that is fresh, modern and slick this will work for you. The starters were nothing special to write home about but full marks for the sea trout and the desserts so it made the 25 pounds for three courses quite good... More

The bar and restaurant have been tastefully modernised. Our waiter was very pleasant. But my expensive burger was made of compressed very finely ground meat in a bun with a couple of lettuce leaves and a thin layer of mayo. The chips were good. My partner had sea bream on a bed of spinach. It was tasty but the portion... More

We went to take out daughter for lunch before the end of Christmas break. 6 people in the entire restaurant. We ordered fish of the day x2 which was cod on a bed of barley and chorizo. My daughter had the lentil curry. The cod was dry and very over cooked and the barley were like rubber bullets. The mushrooms... More

This was a really good value meal, and was beautifully presented. We had the two courses for £15 or three for £20 dinner menu, and there was plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Being predominantly a hotel, rather than just a restaurant, the dining room was comparatively empty but the layout ensures that it is divided up into smaller... More

It is some time since our previous visits when we were mildly critical. We were invited to lunch and found a very good welcome from experienced staff and seated in the main restaurant area which has a nice fresh décor and comfortable furnishings. Obviously the new management since previous visit shows through. Very good menu choice but we took the... More

Description
The Crown at Woodbridge offers all that is great about escaping to the country, with all that is good about staying in a wonderful market town. With old fashioned inn keeping in a modern setting, we boast ten magnificent boutique bedrooms, a bustling bar and a real Suffolk food experience.

Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, head chef Luke Bailey showcases all that is great about Suffolk's local produce, reflected in a food offering which includes a mix of rustic and refined dishes, with simple, high-quality ingredients coming alive on the plate. The Crown's bustling cocktail bar serves everything from local beers and ciders to the latest trend cocktails, all alongside an extensive and well-balanced wine list.

The upstairs of our historic building has been transformed into luxurious yet affordable bedroom retreats, created by award-winning London based designers Bentheim, with goose-down pillows, crisp cotton bed linen, underfloor heating and high-quality touches to match.
