Important Covid information

Although the latest lockdown has now ended, Suffolk remains in Tier Two, which means that drinks on the premises can only be sold with "substantial" meals. This of course rules out reopening for the vast majority of pubs. As and when pubs reopen, we will list them on this page and highlight them on location pages.

Many pubs which are unable to reopen yet (and some that have reopened) are selling food and drink to take away. These are listed on this page.

Please note that due to government regulations, all takeaway drinks must be pre-booked by telephone, text or other means.

Orford Crown & Castle

Orford Crown & Castle

Due to current regulations, pubs can only sell drinks when accompanied by a substantial meal. This means not all pubs can reopen at present.

This is a hotel, so it's possible that drinks are only available here to residents or diners. Please check before visiting.

There is a small, comfortable public bar in this hotel which has 18 en suite bedrooms. The restaurant has 2 AA rosettes, a Michelin bib gourmand, and good write-ups in all the major guides. Although the pub dates back to the 16th century it was much rebuilt in 1896.

It's located within sight of Orford Castle.

Owned until late-2019/early-2020 by Ruth and David Watson, we understand that it's now under new ownership.

Drinks at the C&C

As we are really a restaurant with rooms - not a pub - and have a tiny bar, we can't always accommodate everyone staying (42 people when we are busy) as well as casual drinkers.
Please note, therefore, that we don't serve tea and coffee on their own - only after lunch or dinner.…
