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

An amazing local village pub. The staff are great, the food is great and the range of local ales and ciders is great. There are roaring log fires throughout and it has the feel of an old wayfare inn from back in the day. Might have to make this my new local, if only I didn't live an hour away.... More

I booked this b&b after a nights stay in The Cotswolds. I had such a shock when I arrived at this place. On the pictures on their website their rooms didnt look too bad and the reviews were good so we thought we would give it a go! Oh my god...When we arrived there was a lady who checked us... More

... a proper, unpretentious inn. I took family there for a midweek lunch, and was quite taken with this 'traditional' approach to what I saw, which was a pleasant old-fashioned bar, with a pleasant, old fashioned welcome, where I drank a superb pint of Butcombes, and ate good wholesome traditional food. A good move to resist the trend towards gastro-pubbery,... More

Welcoming and friendly staff. Lovely people to have a chat with while relaxing in the beer garden or the pub. Food is outstanding without being pretentious or overpriced. The room was clean and cosy. Lovely decor. Big enough to be confortable without wasted space. Also iron and iron board and hair drier are there. We booked there to be able... More
