News ArticleWoodbridge restaurant unveils the appointment of new head chef

The Crown at Woodbridge have recently announced a new head chef.

Ben Hegarty has joined the team and brought with him an inspiring new four-course menu which he has called his ‘food story’.

The menu will use high-quality produce from Suffolk and will cost just £32 per person. You can complete the experience with a perfectly paired drinks flight for just £18 per person.


James Lightfoot, Chairman of Choose Woodbridge said: “It’s refreshing to see a restaurant so enthusiastic about keeping their ingredients locally sourced. It is one of the many reasons we are very proud of The Crown.

“We are excited to see what else Ben will be able to bring to them. It is places like The Crown that make Woodbridge and the Thoroughfare special and also why we were highly commended in the Great British High Street awards last year.”

The Crown is a modern inn with an award-winning restaurant based on the Thoroughfare. They pride themselves on showcasing all that’s great about Suffolk’s local produce.

They have a bustling bar alongside their amazing ten rooms in their upstairs historic hotel. They are known for their rustic and refined dishes.
