On high days & holidays it gets packed to the gunnels at this fetching Suffolk seaside rendezvous, famed for its period architecture & genteel chic. The Crown is Adnams’ flagship (just yards from the brewery), so head to the panelled snug at the rear for a pint or join the jolly melee of weekenders, holidaymakers & foodies in the buzzing front parlour with its yellow washed walls, stripped boards & hotchpotch of wooden tables. The cooking underscores the company’s award-winning community & environmental ethos. Locally sourced fish might include scallops with candied butternut squash, paprika & garlic vinaigrette or a simple fillet of halibut with crushed peas & tartare cream, while crispy fried wild rabbit with garlic aïoli or roast partridge might appear alongside roast fillet of pork or char-grilled Suffolk sirloin. No bookings are taken, so be prepared for a scrum & a rush for seats.
