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

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

This is a really lovely old pub. The Sunday roast was lovely, only thing i would say is could have done with a little more veg, otherwise lovely food and good gravy. Good value and would definately recommend. Would like to see some more hot desserts on the menu, couldn't see anything like a good old crumble or apple pie.

just made a second visit for Sunday Lunch, the service has greatly improved and the meal was good value, could have had a bigger range of normal deserts ie. fruit crumble or pie in place of the more fancier things.this time of year people prefer warm pud's.On the whole a much better experience - well done.

Just arrived back today having spent 2 nights B and B at The Old Crown. Are you sure that you people with the negative feedback stayed in the same place as us. From the time we arrived we had a lovely warm welcome from Naomi behind the bar. What a polite young woman. Our room wasnt quite ready so we... More

Imagine the scene, it's the Friday after Christmas and we are struggling up the M5 which is closed up ahead so we decide to go off piste, the satnav loses it's head and we get lost. It gets dark. The satnav decides it doesn't want to play at all and we find ourselves driving down a country lane that says... More
