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.

Had a lovely trip here with family. The room was spacious, stylish and clean with great facilities. The dinner wasn't amazing but the breakfast certainly was. It was pretty pricey but not excessive for the area and it did feel like a special treat to stay.

We had a wonderful weekend, the bed was especially comfortable and large. Lovely evening waitress from East London was charming. Food quality in evening and breakfast was first class. Close to the beach in the centre of town.
