There has been a hostelry on the site of the Crown and Castle in Orford, for eight centuries. The Crown and Castle itself dates back to the C16th but, thanks to an act of architectural vandalism in 1896, you??d be hard-pressed to know that now. The story goes that the original inn was built into the walls of Orford castle, of which only the handsome Norman keep now remains standing. Sitting on our terrace (where you can have a drink on a hot summer??s day), it makes a wonderful sight, particularly when back-lit by the setting sun.
