The Crown Hotel Restaurant

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.

Opening Times

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.
