The Old Crown is a pub in the hamlet of Keston about 5 miles west of Bath on the Bath Road. The pub had just had a change of management so not everything worked smoothly. However, the manager and staff were friendly and helpful. Stayed 2 nights and the room was excellent value for money. Breakfast was very good and... More

Lovely evening meal, gorgeous summer's evening in the garden. Room very cosy and comfortable, clean, tidy and tea/coffee & TV! Breafast was good and eggs poached to perfection. Breakfast served between 8-10am. Plenty of free parking opposite the pub which is great. Hospitality was excellent and would stay again. Thank you ***

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...
