This hotel/pub is just a couple of hundred yards off the main street in Lynton. What it lacks in decor and surroundings it makes up for in the food and the staff. The barman was friendly and amusing and the food (we had fish and chips, cottage pie and a salad) were very tasty and a very reasonable price. The... More

We ate here on a Saturday night after really fancying a pub meal with no frills and a pint. We got exactly what we were looking for, both being vegetarian it was a choice between veggie burger or Indian style curry. My partner had the vegetable burger with chips, onion rings and salad and liked it, the burger was seemingly... More

We have just returned from a very relaxing stay at The Crown Hotel in Lynton. It was excellent value for money and very well situated. The staff were very friendly and The rooms were spotlessly clean. we would definitely return to this Hotel. Lots of lovely restaurants within walking distance and the cliff railway is well worth a trip on... More

A lovely quirky pub/Hotel. The Hotel is old but our room was very comfortable and clean including a continental breakfast. We were a bit worried that it would be noisy as the rooms were over a pub but we did not hear any noise. Very quiet area. Even had tea making facilities, toiletries and a TV. We had a twin... More

Not a hotel, but a great pub with excellent rooms. Despite travelling solo, I was given the best available room - a suite with a very comfortable 4-poster bed, another room with single bed and a spotless modern bathroom with proper bath and separate large shower cubicle. The food is superb. The bar staff and locals are very friendly, which... More

Spent Easter here, had a lovely large room & the kids had their own bedroom with bunkbeds, a few niggles in the room but nothing major. Beds were made up every day which was a nice surprise. Paid extra for English breakfast which was lovely but you can have cereals & toast. Fabulous location in Lynton with coffee shops &... More

We headed to Lynton and Lynmouth for a long weekend. Having never been before we had no idea where to go and happened upon the crown after our evening meal at the excellent Oak Rooms. The atmosphere in the pub was FANTASTIC! It was just myself and my better half and we took two stools at the bar. The locals... More

I have stayed at this hotel (several years ago, under different management) but decided to treat us this time (and will be reviewing that hotel shortly). Having had fond memories of the food here, we decided to visit for a meal one evening. Yes, the pub is strongly oriented towards locals but having visited regularly some years ago I knew... More

We visited this 'hotel' in the summer of 2013 hoping to have a pleasant evening meal in what looked like an inviting pub/restaurant. How wrong we were. We went into the bar and immediately felt that this place was run exclusively for the locals who were sat round the bar making it difficult for visitors to order food. When we... More

We stayed at the Crown on Sunday the place is a very old pub serving real ale and good quality food at a reasonable price. The rooms have been up graded from some of the earlier reviews but this is a very old place and would need masses to bring up to modern standards but it is quaint and excellent... More
