Standing proudly on Southwold’s High Street, The Crown is at the heart of the town and just moments away from the beach. Something of a Suffolk food institution, The Crown has always offered outstanding quality food and wine in a wonderfully informal setting. The wine list boasts a tantalising range of wines by the glass, one doesn’t have to have a bottle. It also showcases a range of well kept and award-winning Adnams beers and spirits. Our 14 bedrooms are all stylish and full of character, offering a high standard of accommodation and a comfortable, memorable stay in Southwold.

Very comfortable room with exposed beams. We booked all inclusive, dinner, bed and breakfast. The quality of the food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast - well worth it! We also found the hotel was making an effort to be sustainable with minimum plastic waste.

Out of lockdown we needed a short break and Southwold seemed a good option with a great beach for walks and a nice character town to mooch around. The Crown hotel has a great location on the High Street with its own parking for guests. We couldn’t fault this hotel. We had a big comfortable room overlooking the High Street to watch the world go by. Really good menu for both breakfast and an evening meal. The staff are lovely and the service was bang on. We’d recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area. You will not be disappointed.

If carlsberg done pork chops this would be it, absolutely delicious. And the sticky toffee pudding with apricots, I had to stop myself ordering another. Service was good as usual, the waiting staff are always very polite and helpful. Looking forward to returning after shutdown 2.
