The Crown Team






Built in 1740, this attractive Georgian building takes pride of place on Southwold’s High Street.

As soon as you walk in, The Crown has a warmth and an immediate familiarity, you just know many a happy guest has been welcomed here before.  The antique oak tables, the traditional pub settles, the old artwork, all highlight the heritage of the Crown.  This is complemented by our friendly, energetic staff, an everchanging seasonal menu and exciting drinks list.
