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.

    Very nice food. Home bread is great. It would be nice to see local food on the menu. One comment / idea: The village butcher makes exceptional sausages it would be a great feature on the menu.

    Very enjoyable meal - warm and cosy atmosphere enhanced by the staff who were friendly, helpful an 'happy that we were there' as customers.

  • ((((( 29 April 2017 by Perry Morley from Bury St Edmunds

    Good food, pleasant surroundings, helpful staff. We thought homemade bread for sandwiches not quite as good as it was when we came in February -- unfrozen rather than freshly made? Homemade ice cream really excellent.
