Long Melford is one of those heritage villages that combines the beauty of the English country side, with some significant historic attractions and an overall feeling of comfortable accessible relaxed rural life as it should be. There are a variety of places one can eat, and this one is a gem. The decor is refurbished historic building, retaining the charm... More

Attended Long Melford for a family party. I choose the Crown for us to stay at The Crown as the photos portray it to look better than average. It was a little more expensive and I assumed that would be reflected in the quality of the accommodation. I was wrong. On the plus side, the room we had was very... More

We visited the Crown for our anniversary and were not disappointed. I had a steak and it was beautifully cooked and my husband was very impressed with his huge home-made burger. The prices here are reasonable and the service was very good. We will definitely be returning soon.

The rooms and meals are overpriced. Mostly the food is very good but they don't like it if you point out when something is not quite right. The owner is very rude and dismissive - not a people person.

Went to the restaurant on a whim at 5:30pm on a Sunday. Quite quiet with lots of free tables. Waitress friendly. Food a bit slow to arrive but it was hot and above average for a pub when it did.

Stayed overnight whilst travelling. Managed to pick the only non Greene King bar in the town. Now that was a result in itself. Good range of beers and ciders (Adnams was perfect) and the evening meal was excellent. Downside was the room and the car park. For a hotel with over 12 rooms, 4 parking spaces was poor. Tell us...
