We recommend that a reservation is placed for lunch and dinner especially during busy periods and in particular at the weekends.

We regret that owing to the increased frequency of “no shows” we now require a deposit of £10.00 per person for parties of six or more.

For parties of 6 or more your final restaurant bill will be subject to a 10% discretionary service charge.

Bringing Children

We have one family room 9 – that can accommodate two adults and up to two children from 1-12years. The layout includes one super king bed and we can provide 2 z beds at a cost of £10 each on top of the room rate.

Cots with linen can be provided at an additional cost of £15 per stay.

We welcome well behaved children of any age accompanied by adults in the restaurant and bar during lunchtime and dinner service. We offer child portions of any of the dishes which feature on the dining room menu which are available and charged accordingly.


We have two open courtyards located in the front and rear of the Inn for those who wish to smoke tobacco. All internal areas of The Bildeston Crown are non-smoking.

Residents: If any evidence of smoking has accrued within your room during your stay with us, we will have not choice but to adding an extra nights accommodation to your stay as this will result in professional cleaners having to come in and clean the room top to bottom meaning this will result in the room being unavailable for other guests until it is cleaned.

Car parking is on a first come first served basis – Parking is at your own risk.


We welcome dogs. If you are bringing two dogs and we ask all dog owners to behave responsibly and pick up any dog litter. We will charge £25 per dog per night for your dog to stay.
