We had an excellent evening meal at The Crown and found the staff efficient, non intrusive and friendly. Although it wasn't the weather for sitting outside, the view of the garden was appreciated and we'd been saved a window table as requested when we booked.

Absolutely disgusted by the service I have received! The Crown has always been my families’ favourite restaurant and after celebrating my birthday here last year and living locally, I had no doubt in choosing my birthday dinner at the crown for my family and friends of 30 local people. Out of courtesy, we went along to the crown early afternoon,... More

Beautiful hotel and surroundings. Very high class restaurant with big portions and beautiful food cooked to a professional standard. Our room was beautiful. We stayed in room 211 and it had a queen sized bed, a big bath and a big walk in power shower. Very expensive but you get what you pay for and our stay was worth every... More

The Crown is primarily a very good bistro pub retaining it's village local character and combining it with great food and wine. The hotel part is more recently built and the rooms are of the highest standard. Tastefully decorated with high quality fixtures and fittings, quality beds and a great bathrooms, all rooms have a TV/DVD player, quality tea and... More

We walked to the pub for our sunday lunch. One of our problems with going out for this meal is that we can very often cook it better than a restaurant for ourselves. This was one of those occasions! The Yorkshire pudds were sorely lacking as were the roast potatoes. Some of the staff were friendly, but others were not.

Stopped at The Crown on the way back from a day at the beach. We were 3 adults and 3 children, all very windswept! The Crown has a nice, laid-back atmosphere and when we apologised for our scruffy dress, we were made to feel very welcome. We all fancied Fish and Chips and there were 2 serving sizes, £8 and...

Met with friends for lunch, who suggested this venue, as although this was our first visit they had been before. A truly lovely location. We were most impressed by both the interior of the restaurant and the exterior seating area. The menu was very good as was the range of fish dishes on the "board". The staff were very attentive...

We popped in for dinner with a party of 6 and one toddler. We called ahead to check if that was OK and if they had a high chair for the two-year-old: yes and no. We brought our own high chair, so that wasn't a problem. The service was friendly enough although quite slow for a weekday dinner. The restaurant... More

Visited the restaurant with friends for lunch. My wife is intolerant to garlic and this is always a concern for her when choosing from the menu.Our last visit here was not a happy one but we like this restaurant and decided to try again. On this occasion Sam and his team went to great lengths to discuss and advise on... More

Been here quite a few times and never had a bad meal. On our recent visit, the sun was shining bright so we sat in the courtyard under an umbrella surrounded by flowers. Bliss! Had a delightful meal and a bottle of Cava. Staff great. Food great. Super value for money and we will go back again and again.
