The Crown Post
The Crown Post, a beautifully restored 600-year-old traditional pub is at heart of the charming town of Harwich. The pub is traditional, with timber-beamed ceilings and rustic decor. The ambience is relaxed and friendly, making The Crown Post the perfect place to call in for a pint and a top-notch meal.
The kitchen team whips up beautifully presented plates of traditional British fare that delight the regular clientele. From midday throughout the week, The Crown is full of contented diners refueling on the likes of ciabatta sandwiches with delicious ﬁllings such as tasty sausage and caramelised red onion, and local gammon with a punchy hit of mustard. The evenings see everyone from couples and colleagues to family groups, all looking to enjoy ﬁlling dishes of expertly prepared food. Begin with an indulgent whole-baked Camembert to share, or, for something more exotic, the Caribbean jerk chicken. Main courses include succulent charred chicken breast stuffed with leek and smoked bacon, and lashings of Stilton sauce upon a bed of crushed potatoes, and a deliciously sticky dish of teriyaki-glazed salmon steak served on a bed of fresh vegetable stir fry.
Keen to offer an affordable dining-out option, The Crown offers two main meals for only £12, arguably the best value for money for miles. You’ll leave here relaxed and satisﬁed, planning your next visit.
