Harden's survey result
“Beautiful and atmospheric, with lovely décor” – Chis Haley’s fifteenth century wood-framed inn pleases all who comment on it, with its “beautifully presented” local grub. “Was it worth the 125 mile round trip? Oh yes!”
“Great local produce” is showcased by chef/landlord Chris Hayley on his “creative” menus at this welcoming 15th-century wood-framed former coaching inn.
For “creative and sound cooking” that’s “very good value” too, this genteel Suffolk coaching inn is just the ticket – especially since the return of original husband-and-wife team Chris & Hayley Lee after a short break.
The “pleasant” dining room of this “beautiful old Suffolk coaching inn” is “back to its best now that the original team has returned”, with longtime chef Chris Lee (and wife Hayley) replacing Zack Deakins after a two-year hiatus; it’s now turning out “excellent” dishes in the main, though “service is still hit ’n’ miss”.
The Bildeston Crown Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Was some time since I'd dined here and popped in for a quick lunch with a girlfriend. We had the two course set lunch at £15.00 per head and one glass of Chardonnay £7.00 and a G & T £5.95. We were shown to a nice window table in the restaurant and the service was extremely good. We also enjoyed 3 small, warm and home cooked tasty rolls and butter, so wish we'd had the main course and pud, instead of a starter and main course! Total bill was £42.95 + tip."
