Just happened on this well hidden delightful pub. We had starters to share they were large and delicious. We sat outside but the building is spacious yet snug. Hope to go back.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- 5 stars all round As our local pub we visit regularly but this time it was a little bit more special. Tonight was our last time dining before our table of two turns into a table of three. And the charming ambiance made it...that little bit more memorable. We really love dining here. From the moment we arrived until we left, everything was impeccable. I appreciate the team for putting together such a good experience. The food was delicious as always. We are already looking forward to our next visit with the new addition.More

Thank you for another really enjoyable lunch and experience today. The team are really friendly and welcoming. The pub is in a beautiful village and beautifully presented inside and out. They’ve just got it right here, incredibly good quality restaurant standard food, yet have kept...the charm and relaxed atmosphere of a village pub. The detail is noticed, quality napkins, the way the cutlery is presented, branded bottles for the complimentary still/sparkling water, nicely presented menus and beautifully presented food. The food is clearly freshly prepared by experienced chefs, and always tastes superb! The real ale is made at their local Bury St. Edmonds pub and offers a good selection of quality real ale. Looking forward to coming back again very soon. Thank you for making our experience a good one.More

Met family and friends for lunch. Lovely pub in a very pretty location. Nice to see that it’s dog friendly. We had a couple of drinks in a lovely atmosphere in the restaurant. The food was excellent. I had fish and chips and have to...say, it was the best battered fish I have ever had. The batter was crisp and light, the fish was moist, succulent and plentiful. Thanks to the kitchen and bar staff!More

Visited The Crown twice during our week’s stay in Hartest. Well looked after by Oscar and his team on both occasions. Locally brewed ale was good and the food is AMAZING! Pie and pint night on Wednesday was fab. Thank you, Paul, Nicky and Tilly...xMore

Local (10 miles) but never visited before. Convenient location for a small business meeting. So good, I shall certainly return for a leisure visit. Old pub, but clean and updated tastefully inside. Easy parking, Good food, friendly staff, level access, accessible toilet - all the...things that matter to me. I had a risotto with some brie melted in- sensational. OK it was Wednesday lunch, not Friday or Saturday, but as booking is advised, no doubt busier times will be good too.More

We visited The Crown for a mid-week dinner. It's a lovely, old pub with the most ridiculously enormous beer garden in beautiful Suffolk countryside. The food was divine, perfectly portioned and very tasty. The feather blade steak was particularly good. What really made the visit...memorable was the staff. They were friendly and welcoming and the lady who took our food orders and served us dinner was without doubt the hostess with the mostest! She made us feel like cherished regulars. A fantastic evening.More

A lovely spacious restaurant with a small bar area. The staff are lovely! Really accommodating, helpful, cheerful and fun! The food is wonderful, the atmosphere is very pleasant, good background music, excellent beer from the local Brewshed brewery, all in all, a lovely place to...go for meal and a few drinks. Lucy the manager is just the perfect host. Always smiling, exceptionally helpful, loves a chat and has an excellent sense of humour. Her traits filter down to her staff as well which makes for an excellent team. Long may they continue! Keep up the great work!More

The best Sunday roast in a decade - by far. Super friendly and helpful staff, great wine list and 'to die for' pineapple upside down cake. All in a beautiful setting - AND clean and comfortable toilets (there's always a downside and that's usually it,...but not here!) We're already planning our return visit; one of my party is all the way from Colchester and has resolved to bring her friends - it's that good!More

On arrival the staff were welcoming. I hadn’t pre booked a table for a evening meal. The pub was busy inside with dinners but outside in the extensive garden courtyard area it was quite. I opted for the garden area. The service was good and...the staff were happy to have a conversation. The food was very nice and portions to satisfy the majority of people. I would recommend the venue for a visit.More
