Grey Crown


The Crown Inn Hotel & Restaurant is a family-run freehouse where you are guaranteed a very warm welcome, an indulgent seasonal menu and a good night’s sleep.

Situated in the idyllic village of Long Melford in Suffolk, which showcases a remarkable collection of buildings dating from the 15th century onwards, this historic coaching inn was built in 1610 and occupies an imposing position near the Mill Ford crossing on the long, three-mile stretch of single road through the centre, after which the village was named.

The Medieval cloth industry played an important part in the colourful history of the village and in 1885 the notorious Riot Act was read to assembled villagers from the steps of The Crown Inn Hotel & Restaurant.

Rich in original detail and character, with exposed timber beams, open fireplaces and Tudor cellars, the hotel is full of original charm and has a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere where guests can also enjoy the comforts of contemporary living.
