Claydon Crown

Crown PHThis very attractive olde worlde pub is situated in Claydon village (map) on the edge of Ipswich. With a traditional interior The Crown has retained its oak beams to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. Our restaurant, which is suitable for up to 80 people, is particularly popular at the weekends with customers drawn from long distances just to dine here. The Hungry Horse food is the special attraction of this pub. Food is served by helpful and friendly staff from this extensive menu with something to appeal to everyone of all ages. We do not believe in small portions so large quantities of delicious food is the order of the day. Because the bar and restaurant are on different levels this gives some privacy to our customers. On summer days our beer garden is a lovely retreat with a quality pint. Bring friends and family to this pub soon and sample the best of British in comfortable surroundings.
