Stayed at this pub in September whilst in Benson to choose a canal boat holiday for next year. We were greater by Tim the landoor a lovely chap...His wife Germane was equally hospitable. ..We had a superb Sunday lunch and toffee sticky pud to die for! We found the twin room a little cramped. The bathroom door wouldn't close and... More

Stayed here over the weekend to attend two functions in the neighboring town of Nettlebed. The Crown is staffed by exceedingly welcoming and friendly staff. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable and as an added bonus did not have a tv or radio. Some noise from the courtyard, but as we didn't arrive back until very late and the... More

What a wonderful couple of days at the Crown Inn. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We had an evening meal in the restaurant for 9 including 2 children and the food was really good. The room I stayed in was of good size with an en-suite shower of great quality. I have... More

Breakfast: freshly prepared English or continental, excellent. The cook's wife or the landlady (Germaine) give you an excellent service. On the cook's day off, Germaine is the best substitute you can get! Room: clean, rather small bathroom but everything you need. For light sleepers: no double glazing, but not much traffic in the village. Try the resatuarant: the Polish cook... More

We stayed here on 18th to 20th July and had a fabulous time. The room (No 6) we stayed in with our 5 year old daughter was decorated to a high standard. The bathroom was huge. We enjoyed 2 lovely meals in the restaurant. The breakfast was great. You could choose between full English, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or... More

I would thoroughly recommend a visit to the Crown if you get the chance. The staff are all really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Tim and Germaine are both really approachable and their attention to detail is really refreshing. The food is excellent and the atmosphere in the bar was great (we watched both World Cup semi finals).... More

We had a very nice meal last night. Presentation, taste, quality and service were all excellent. The bar area was kitted out for the World Cup and pool teams playing maintain a pleasant local pub atmosphere which I didn't notice whilst dining. (Just waiting for half time between URU v ENG to go back to The Crown for second half.)

Haven't stayed here as we live locally but we use The Crown for meals out, mostly at the weekend. The food is very good and the chef (Pascal) does particularly good soups and steaks. Tim and Germaine (the landlord and his wife) have renovated the place and always provide a warm welcome. There's never a problem if you want chips... More
