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.

Recent visit The Crown - we have been going for at least ten years - particularly enjoyed an out-of-season overnight stay. Accommodation is spacious and well appointed without being fussy and has benefited from a refurb over the last few years. Staff friendly and direct.
