About the Pub

This hotel is situated in Southwold High St, but is still close to the seafront. It has 14 bedrooms and a restaurant and bar that is mainly used for dining whilst a small friendly, public bar is located to the rear.

Historic Interest

Built circa 1740. In 1844 Listed as a Hotel & Posting House - also listed as a commercial inn & posting house & family hotel in 1865. A report in the Ipswich Journal on Oct 18 1890 when George Gage was the landlord states that an Appeal against a conviction for selling out of hours was made. The appeal was granted. A paperback book published in 1969, called "Inns of the Suffolk Coast" by Leonard P Thompson contains the following extract: “It has an early Georgian front; other eighteenth century features include an unusual bay window in the bar. These features may originate from the period around 1743, when, according to Mrs Citten (?), the inn was known as the Nag's head. In 1756, it was called the New Swan - doubtless with the idea of emphasising its rivalry with the Old Swan - & in 1829 the name was finally changed to the Crown”.
