After the siege of Colchester in 1648, Parliamentary soldiers came looking for John Wenlock, a loyalist who had long suffered for his support of Charles I. When they eventually found him, he was hauled to the Crown Inn, where he was brought before the rest of the troopers and their commander-in-chief who were lodged there.

Our impressive black and white timbered inn with its pretty gardens dates to at least 1648. It's near Ardleigh Reservoir - a lovely walking area - and is a popular stop off for travellers from Ipswich and Felixstowe.
