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.

    Eaten here a number of times now and food and staff are always great
    This particular visit was special occasion because we were celebrating a relations significant birthday
    Placed a 7.30pm booking online a week in advance for 5 people, arrived at 7pm but did not get menu's until 7.45pm, no big deal.
    Placed our orders then was informed they run out of some of the meals chosen, again no big deal.
    Reselected and then told again our new selection was unavailable, this was not so good.
    I have to say our eventual selected meals that arrived were great and the staff did apologise for the inconvenience, the bill was also adjusted without asking which was great customer service.
    I will be going back but the Crown need to review how there menu is managed as running out of meals on an early booking is really not acceptable..

    We came for Sunday roast, quite late in the evening, food was delicious. Great choice of beer and puddings, thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Waitress was lovely too.

    The atmosphere at the crown was just lovely. Warm, relaxed and friendly. The staff were attentive and professional. My partner and myself both had a starter and a main. Both of us enjoyed all of our meal. The goats cheese on sourdough was particularly delicious. My partner had the steak, which he said was cooked beautifully.
    We had a really enjoyable evening and will definitely be returning to crown in the near future.
    Thank you so much.

    Great friendly atmosphere, always greeted with a smile. Great choice of starters our favourite is the pork scotch egg followed by the feather blade steak served with home made chips , tomato & onion shreds, deserts are gorgeous too, lemon posset, yogurt biscuits & raspberries, washed down with a pint of their own brand beers American Blonde being a good choice nice and light on the pallet. Fantastic relaxing evening with good food & drink ??
