We stopped here 6th feb'15. Arrived lunchtime. We were welcomed by a young girl who showed us to the building next door where our room was. Only problem was th room was that floorboards were very noisy from those sleeping upstairs and the shower hadn't been cleaned properly. But me and fiancée had no problem with this really after a...

Having stopped for lunch I would not recommend this pub to anyone. It's cold and not very clean bar staff umfreindly and no customer skills. Lady showing no dress sense. Appeared tobe working under sufferance. With a bad attitude towards her customers.

Before I start this review I must comment on a negative post I saw on this forum. This is a small country pub with some accommodation available so Premier Inn type rooms or service should not be expected, but I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and were immediately struck by how quiet... More

We spent two nights here whilst attending a family gathering. I have visited The Crown many times for a drink and always enjoyed the company and atmosphere. However this is the first time I have stayed overnight. Like other reviews we did find the room small but it was clean and tidy and part of an old building so we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights a Friday and Saturday night. Firstly the food was very tasty, and I was impressed with the service. We stayed in the Blond room it was warm and cosy with a very comfy bed. The locals are very friendly. I highly recommend a visit to this historic pub. Thankyou to the management and staff

Please everyone, avoid this place like the plague!. The staff couldn't organise a ***-** in a brewery. Their manner of treating guests was disgusting. Upon me complaining upon the state of the bathroom not being cleaned and the fact of no clean towels, the so called manageress did not even have the common courtesy to talk to me! The breakfast...

We arrived on Thursday 24th July for 4 nights and were shown to a twin room. To say there was no room to swing a cat was an understatement. Hardly any space to maneouvre around; you could hardly get in to the ensuite as the door was right against one of the beds with hardly any space and there was... More

I fell in love with this place as soon as I walked in! The bar looks like it's never changed, very quaint pub with very friendly locals. The food was the best food iv had out for a long time and was presented beautifully. The beer garden, again beautiful. A fab play area for the kids, lovely flowers and a... More

Myself and my girlfriend went to the pub for Sunday lunch. Having confirmed it with reception, we ordered a plain cheese sandwich, was served with a goats cheese sandwich, explained the problem and was met with poor service. Upon paying, we had huge problems in convincing them of a US card which they wouldn't accept as it was unsigned despite... More
