We were delighted with our 3 nights stay in The Crown. The bedroom, Dedham, spacious with plenty of storage was ideal. The bathroom is equally generous with both shower and bath. All in immaculate condition. Nothing has been done on the cheap. We ate dinner in the restaurant every evening as the food was excellent and there was plenty of choice. The service was friendly and efficient despite being busy. The breakfast also offers plenty of choice. The village is pretty and quiet. Overall, an establishment well situated, well equipped and well run.

A return visit and a vastly improved experience from last year. Bedrooms have been refurbished and are very comfortable with great quality beds and furnishing. We stayed in May and it was the first week when inside eating was allowed again but used both the beautiful outside court yard ( with great heaters and blankets ) and the cosy inside. It was so lovely to sit in the comfy chairs by the bar for a pre dinner drink ( so much nicer than going straight to your table ) and we actually felt like things were really getting back to pre covid. Most tables were occupied and the atmosphere was buzzy and fun. Dinner was relaxed and very tasty ( steak meal and vegetarian option ) and they actually had all the wines we asked for this time so the cellar seems to have been topped up !

I'm so glad that your return visit was such a success. The newly refurbished rooms are really beautiful and offer the kind of comfort and relaxation we all need at the moment. You can be sure that, as business returns to some kind of normality, I will be making sure that standards across the whole property are maintained - we plan to go from strength to strength! Do come and visit again soon!

The Tipi was being used for a Wedding & after deliberating on indoors versus outdoors, we opted for the courtyard because it looked so inviting (despite chilly weather). Covered area with large patio heaters, comfy chairs, candles, and blankets, a lovely ambience. Great friendly & efficient service and good food. Time to relax, yet plenty of staff to assist. The belly pork in soy was delicious! This place has been noticeably uplifted since the last time we visited.

We are delighted that so many of our guests feel as positive about our post-lockdown re-opening as we do! The covered terrace continues to be popular even though we are now offering indoor dining as well; of course, when summer is well and truly here, the terrace uncovered will be a wonderful place to sit too. We are always committed to delivering excellent food and service in relaxed surroundings and we look forward to welcoming you back.

One of the best independent pub/ restaurants in the area, and well worth a drive if your not! Lovely position in a beautiful village that offers lots of lovely walks after a fabulous lunch. Unlike a lot of pubs in the village/ area, they have a large car park. Currently have a beautiful marquee set up with blankets, rugs and soft furnishings, if you still prefer to eat outside. The food is always second to none and is a great place for “foodies”. The service can be slow and sporadic, but as long as you are not in a rush, it’s worth the wait and you just have to wave waiters down when you want something and they are very efficient and polite once you have their attention. They offer beautiful accommodation too if you are looking to stay in the area.

Stoke by Nayland is a great destination with beautiful walks in and around the village and Constable Country on our doorstep. The Crown is the perfect base, whether for lunch or dinner if you're just here for the day, or for an overnight break. Our rooms were extensively refurbished during lock-down and now offer all the stylish comfort you could wish for. Our menu changes to reflect seasonality so you can always be sure of fresh and carefully prepared food whenever you visit. Thank you for such a glowing review - we look forward to welcoming you back!
