Sometimes called Kensington On Sea, Southwold attracts many folk who are looking for the ultimate English seaside experience. The Crown's crowded bar with yellow walls and high-backed pews serves lighter food while the more formal green dining room in the handsome hotel is where you'll find modern British dishes devised by executive head chef Tyler Torrance.
Where is The Crown Hotel located?
The Crown is located in the centre of town on Southwold's High Street, just minutes away from the beach.
What cuisine is on offer at The Crown Hotel?
Local produce gets Mediterranean twist in starters such as thinly sliced rare Sotherton fillet of beef with rocket, Parmesan and calamari, chorizo and olive stew. But there's a decidedly British feel to the main course of Suffolk spring lamb neck and liver with pease pudding and a pea and mint dressing. Things get inventive at the dessert stage with a coconut pannacotta, roast pineapple and lemongrass sorbet. The local and seasonal menu changes daily.
What makes a meal at The Crown Hotel unique?
The head chef Rob Mace and the kitchen staff have a strong relationship with the local farmers and fishermen so that their ingredients are as new, organic and seasonal as possible. The Crown menu regularly changes, depending on what the chefs have brought from the local suppliers each morning.
