The Crown in Hartest is a charming country pub pairing a seasonal food menu with real ales and an impressive wine list. With an open fire place and exposed brick walls, the interior is rustic and homely, whilst the large beer garden offers al fresco dining and a play area for the kids.

The Crown pub menu is a blend of classic dishes and international flavours. Try the Gressingham duck breast with butter beans, charred lettuce and rhubarb, curried chickpea burger with pineapple chutney, or seabass fillet with sprouting broccoli tart. The kids aren’t left out with a dedicated menu, whilst grazing boards and bar snacks are on hand for a lighter bite.

Home to a hearty Sunday roast, The Crown Bury St Edmunds also host regular live music and events, placing it firmly at the heart of the community. Committed to local produce, the pub even adds its own beer to the impressive drinks selection.

The Crown in Suffolk sits on the edge of the village green. Bury St Edmunds is a 15-minute drive away.

    Attentive Staff, welcomed as soon as we entered. Being picky, I thought that although the Meal itself was beautifully cooked and presented it was a little on the expensive side for the portion served. I had the Steak but there were no Onion Rings or Mushrooms served with it. Only received half a small Tomato. From experience of other Establishments of the same standard I feel that the Portions and pricing need to be looked at. Another feature that I feel I must comment on is the decor.....GREY PAINT on the walls does not suit a Restaurant. However I must say that I enjoyed the Meal and the Service received, but would not eat here on a regular basis because of cost as previously mentioned.

    Enjoyable lunch of fish and chips with delicious mushy peas and samphire as an extra! Lovely touches such as home made tartare sauce. Raspberry torte was good for pudding but coconut creme brulee didn't have the remotest flavour of coconut. More like a n ordinary egg custard. - we did tell the waitress and I hope the chef takes our comment on board Lovely staff who are very pleasant and attentive!
