Our take on destination dining is one of the main reasons guests visit the Crown at Woodbridge.
Downstairs, leading off the lavish glass-roofed bar, four intimate areas offer a variety of distinctive eating spaces; whether for a more formal meal in our brasserie-style dining rooms; an informal lunch or supper in our bar rooms at the communal table or on sofas in front of the fire or woodburner; a plate of simple fruits de mer perched at the bar; or a private party in the red room at the front. When creating the new-look Crown, Stephen David, our Chef-Patron, visualised a stylish different venue, which avoided pretension and would flexibly suit all people and occasions. Whether a romantic table for two on a weekend evening, a business meal with colleagues, a family birthday celebration for Sunday lunch, or simply a midweek supper to avoid the washing-up, we think the Crown does it all.
As an inn, we do not have space for functions, only accommodating a maximum of 28 comfortably in our largest room; this reassuringly means we are open everyday for lunch and dinner, except Christmas Day, without the disturbance of large parties for diners.
The same carte menu as well as our 'And..' daily specials are served throughout the Crown between 12 noon – 2pm and 6.30pm – 9pm. The carte features our varied mix of reworked classic favourites, comfort food and more modern inventive dishes, combining real earthy flavour and arty refinement; now complemented by our 'And...' list of daily specials, making best use of the latest seasonal flavours from our East Anglian food producers and the local markets.

Wine List and The Crown Bar
Complementing Stephen’s exciting cuisine is our eclectic very personal wine list of some 80 bins, featuring over 20 wines by the glass (properly preserved by Verre de Vin), seasonal choices to complement the current cuisine, good value everyday wines and more than a few special bottlings from the great and good of the Old and New Worlds.
The Crown’s well-stocked bar offers Italian prosecco fizz on draught, local Adnams ales and London Meantime beers, Aspall Suffolk cyder, along with interesting non-alcoholic options and unusual spirits.
