Square Meal Review of The Crown and Castle ?

TV’s ‘Country House’ guru Ruth Watson and her husband David have created a retreat for all seasons at this dreamy Suffolk restaurant-with rooms: summer drinks on the terrace give way to weekend papers in front of a roaring log fire, and the atmosphere is “so good” that it regularly induces wedding proposals. Food-wise, casual lunches offer a mix of British and Italian favourites ranging from ‘proper’ steak and kidney pie with shortcrust pastry to fritto misto or seafood risotto (“worth the trip alone”, exclaimed one fan).  Dinner offers something similar with the addition of a few more flashy items such as bresaola with shredded raw cabbage, Parmesan and lemon oil, rump of Suffolk lamb with rosemary potatoes and salsa verde or line-caught cod with globe artichoke, raisin and pine nut ragù. For afters, treacle tart gets the nod, and Sunday lunch is reckoned to be “fantastic” too. Simply factor in an enticing wine list bolstered by lots of bargain bin ends and a choice of super bedrooms for those who want to get away from it all.
