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 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.

    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 ??

    We had the worst table which was by the door and freezing. The food was ok, the service really lacked refinement to the point that the waitresses seemed more worried about admin than looking around to attend to their diners - disappointed on the whole which is a shame as this place could be amazing.

    We had a fantastic and relaxing meal at The Crown in New Years Day. The food was lovely and the service exceptional. We had 2 young children who were made to feel welcome. We will definately be going back.

    We enjoyed a lovely meal. My husband loved his roast beef and he especially liked the gravy. They catered very well for my dietary problem as I am gluten intolerant.
    The waitress was very friendly and helpful .we like the ambience .a nice experience.
