The Crown doesn't offer sandwiches at lunchtime, so we had our first chance to savour the Chef's clear obsession with tasty dishes - my wife enjoyed a breadcrumbed chicken fillet with poached egg and delicately salted chips, while I had a salmon and prawn linguine. This left us anticipating what he might produce for dinner and we weren't disappointed. Starters...

Went there a couple of weeks ago...lovely setting, place etc. Staff friendly and the ambience nice. There was a reasonably good choice on the menu but I was shocked with the prices! I chose chicken with dauphinois potatoes and expected it to come with vegetables...this was £16 alone.....oh no you have to pay extra for veg so my main meal...

My wife and I have stayed here a couple of times, firstly as part of a group of 10 and subsequently just as a couple. Both times it's been excellent. The staff are very good and the ambience of the whole place is great. Staying overnight allows us to thoroughly enjoy the food, both evening dining and the breakfast. The...

Recently visited The Crown Stoke By Nayland and was disappointed, this used to be one of our favourite restaurants but prices have definitely increased I had Potato Gnocchi which was £13 quite steep for the portion size. Overall nice restaurant but feel prices are a little on the steep side for a pub.

We took friends for a meal here last night having booked a table. We have eaten here several times before and for the most part have always enjoyed the food service and ambience of the Crown. Great place to go for good food and it can be really buzzing with a great atmosphere. Our starters were lovely, I had the...

We were staying at a local hotel and came just for a meal last Monday night. The food was fabulous and so was the service. We will definitely be back next time we are in the area. Thank you - we loved it!

My wife and I stayed one night last week on a brief visit to Suffolk. We had a room on the ground floor which had only recently been renovated and to a very high standard. Underfloor heating, comfortable double bed with the largest bath towels we have ever seen plus a powerful shower. We enjoyed a dinner in the pub...

Had lunch today after hearing good reviews of this place and wasn't disappointed, menu choice was really good, service was good and food was excellent. Lots of variety to choose from. I had mullet fish and it was excellent. Reasonably priced as well. Would definitely recommend and will be back.

We have just returned from Sunday lunch with friends....after a 3 course meal my Husband is still hungry so yes, I'm going to complain about the portion sizes in comparison to the cost of each course. I had two tiny onion and squash bahji's with a smear of mango dressing, I'm sorry but this is not worth the £6.75 they...
