The Crown in Southwold is a great place to eat, drink and relax in a great atmosphere. Our menu offers great cooking with quality local ingredients.

With an extensive wine list, you will be spoilt for choice for wines to pair with our delicious dishes.

There are two restaurant areas to choose from and if you just fancy a quick drink, then pop into our cosy back bar or take a seat outside where you can watch the world go by.

Our Head Chef, Rob Mace and the kitchen team have a good relationship with local farmers and fishermen to ensure all our food and produce is as fresh, local and as seasonal as possible.

The Crown’s menu changes regularly, depending on what our chefs have brought in fresh that morning. However, we do keep some of our house favourites on at all times.

You can dine at the Crown from breakfast until dinner with morning coffees and drinks served all day. Tables are available to book for lunch and dinner, and the food service times are 12.00pm – 3.00pm and 6.00pm – 8.00pm.

Our Georgian Parlour is the perfect place for an intimate party or a formal meeting.

With its large sash windows overlooking the high street, the natural light floods in to give the room an airy feel and an inviting warmth.  It also offers a great view for watching the world go by.

Located on the ground floor, this flexible space can be laid out in theatre style for a meeting for up to 30 people, or up to 20 people for private dining.  Menus and drinks lists are personalised to your needs and occasion.

The Parlour will host events and private dining in line with COVID restrictions advised by the Government.
