About Us


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

Built in 1610 as a coaching inn, The Crown occupies an imposing position near the Mill Ford crossing in Long Melford.

The Medieval wool and cloth industry played an important part in the colourful history of the village and the building is rich in original detail and character. Exposed timber beams, open fireplaces and Tudor cellars give the hotel a charming atmosphere where guests can also enjoy the comforts of contemporary living.
