This was our third (or possibly fourth) visit to this magical place. We'd heard of all the problems that had hit the previous proprietors, so wondered how it was getting on under the new owner and chef, Chris Harrod. No amount of strife can affect the unique beauty of this location. It's just so quiet, so peaceful, and so full... More

We took two friends this time, as it was the husband's birthday this month. Every course of the seven course tasting menu was a delight - no course was just 'average'. I don't know what an earlier reviewer normally eats, but all four of us were full (and not through filling up with the superb bread, either). Good recommendations of... More

The Crown was always a top class restaurant so it was very disappointing to see it close last year. I was relieved to hear it had re-opened but wondered if it could reach the same standard. I was very pleasantly surprised, there is no doubt that under the new management The Crown is not only back but its better. The... More

A superb experience. We had the taster menu: every course was miniature perfection. Nothing was rushed; we could linger and savour every beautiful mouthful. The quantities and timing were well judged, so we felt comfortably replete and relaxed afterwards. The wine list includes a pleasing range of prices and some unusual bottles. The enthusiastic restaurant manager's wine recommendation was spot... More

We stayed here recently having been told the food was great and following good reviews on Tripadvisor. The food was extremely nice I can't say otherwise, but you should never leave the table feeling hungry which is exactly how my wife and I felt that evening. This was a return to the bad old days of nouvelle cuisine and we... More

My sister and I took my mum to The Crown this weekend for her birthday. It was my mum's choice and I was a little apprehensive at first. Yet I couldn't be more wrong! The service was exceptional, the food was beautiful and the wine and cocktails were delicious. My sister, mum and I all throughly enjoyed it and it... More

I was delighted to see that the crown had re opened,my husband and I visited when it was run by the previous owner for lunch a few times, and being to far for dinner took advantage of the march offer of dinner bed and breakfast, pleasantly surprised by the new decor which has created more room and is now bright...

A lunch to celebrate a special birthday with a group of friends - the food was exceptional and the ambiance and service superb! This is definitely worth the money and the restaurant in the area to return to in the near future!

Just had our first visit since the re- opening. Nicely freshened up decore. Slightly disappointed at the limited choices for lunch (2 starters, 2 mains). Having said that the food quality was excellent and very pleasing in flavour complexity. For me the lack of "Michelin" flourish and "edge", is not necessarily a bad thing making it easier and more relaxing... More

We first visited The Crown at Whitebrook 10 years ago. At that point the previous owners had just taken over & hadn't done anything much to the accommodation.....that bit was.....basic. Expecting nothing much after checking into the rooms we then proceeded to relish, that evening, completely unexpectedly, the best restaurant meal we had ever eaten. We stayed 2 nights &... More
