The Crown & Castle

Co-owned by Ruth Watson, David Watson and Tim Sunderland, the Crown and Castle has 21 en-suite bedrooms, some in the main building and others in the garden. TripAdvisor has placed it as the no.1 place to stay in East Anglia for the last five years. The lively, recently refurbished restaurant is in all the major food guides. The menu comprises authentic British and Italian dishes, all of which utilise as much local produce as possible, bearing in mind lemons and carnaroli rice aren't found in Suffolk – yet. Weather permitting, guests are welcome to enjoy the midweek Casual Lunch outside on the terrace.

Our aim is to offer thoughtful, unstuffy service and to provide a truly relaxing atmosphere. We welcome children of all ages at lunchtime but only 8 years or older in the hotel and at dinner. A limited number of dogs are also welcome in the hotel and on our ‘doggie’ table.
