Who we are
Co-owned by Ruth Watson, David Watson and Tim Sunderland, the Crown and Castle is a restaurant with 21 highly rated guest bedrooms. We are situated within a stone’s throw of the C12th castle, in the heart of the beautiful, tranquil village of Orford on the river Ore, with the National Trust’s Orford Ness just across the river. Aldeburgh is just a few miles to the north and it is only a 15-minute drive to Snape Maltings, home of Aldeburgh Music.
We are open for accommodation, lunch and dinner all year round but because we are not a hotel in the traditional sense, we do not serve tea, coffee or drinks to non-resident guests. We are dog-friendly (in five dedicated Garden rooms) and welcome children over 8 years to stay. Bed and breakfast terms are available from Sunday to Thursday but Friday and Saturday is sold as a 2-night dinner, bed and breakfast stay.
