The Crown

We are open. We can’t wait to welcome you back through our doors.

view our opening hours

We have a fortnightly menu which is available for lunch or dinner. On Sundays, this includes a roast. To dine from this menu, we strongly recommend that you book in advance as we are currently operating with smaller teams which limits the number of meals we can offer from this menu at each service. Your booking will be for an inside table but if the weather is on your side when you arrive, you are welcome to eat outside if we have a table free.

We also have a garden menu which is available at weekends. We are not taking bookings outside but have a huge garden with plenty of space – feel free to bring a picnic blanket or folding chairs in case all our tables are in use when you arrive.

Our wine shop, Vino Gusto @ The One Bull, has temporarily moved online only in preparation for a move into a town centre retail space later this year – the only independent wine shop in Bury St Edmunds. Sign up to our dedicated Vino Gusto mailing list to stay in the loop on this and much more:
