We have been going to the Crown and Castle for more than 10 years - staying with them at least once or twice a year. Every time we are made to feel truly welcome and the staff have learnt to pre-empt every request, are they...More

About
Description
The Crown and Castle is a 5-star Restaurant with Rooms open for lunch and dinner all year round (but closed in the morning and afternoon to non-residents guests). Situated in the tranquil village of Orford on the More Suffolk coast (just south of Aldeburgh), the Crown and Castle is perfect for leisure guests wanting to relax and recharge. With wonderful walking by the river and through nearby forests, we are a stone’s throw from the magnificent C12th castle. The extraordinary Orford Ness (NT) is just across the river Ore. Awarded Editor’s Choice by the 2018 Good Hotel Guide and chosen by the Sunday Times as one of the Best 100 hotels for 2019, authentic British and Italian food is at our heart and we were recently honoured by Sawday’s Guide for Fabulous Food. We have five dedicated Garden rooms suitable for dogs, as recognised by a recent Good Hotel Guide dog-friendly award. There are two family rooms suitable for children over 8 and children of any age are welcome at lunchtime. Less
