Adnams Hotels General Manager, Martin Edwards, comments: "We have many customers at The Crown looking for something more authentically 'Southwold' than just a snack or a sandwich in the afternoon. Our new boards are filled with a range of delicious and interesting locally-sourced mini-dishes in the modern Crown style which are ideal for two people to share over a glass of wine or pint of Adnams beer." Sharing platter at The Crown Southwold, April 2014Chefs Rory and Simon have created the boards using seasonal and locally-grown ingredients where possible. Simon explains: "We can't always source all of the ingredients from local growers, olives for example and some salads out of season, but we do always use local suppliers. Our smoked anchovies, and much of the fish featured on the fish board, are from the Lowestoft smoke house, and or meat is sourced from Cleveleys Butchers in Halesworth." Afternoon visitors to The Crown can now choose from the following boards at £15.95 each; all are served with bread, salad and pickles: Vegetarian: Ripe avocado guacamole – Kalamata olive paste – feta stuffed peppers – candied nuts – marinated Mediterranean vegetables – artichokes – confit tomato and basil Fish: Crab mousse – shredded slow cooked mackerel – roll mop herrings – smoked anchovies – marinated squid – prawns – Copper house Vodka cured gravadlax Meat: Venison sausages in Broadside chutney and orange – shredded confit duck – seasonal terrine – salami – parma ham - pork scratchings – chicken liver paté Ploughmans: Seasonal terrine – Suffolk ham – Sausage roll – Local cheese – apple – Broadside chutney The Crown Sharing Boards will also be available at the Southwold Cellar & Kitchen Store from 18th April. At the Southwold store, the boards will be served between 5pm and 7.30pm on Fridays and Saturdays. During the school holidays in the summer, our Southwold store café will serve the boards all week, with the store staying open until 8pm. You can view images of the sharing boards on Flickr.
