We celebrated my Grans birthday here as she had heard through a friend how nice it was here. I could not agree more. A beautiful stone building with sun room at the rear in a quiet village. Was the best sunday roast I have had and the other food looked good and excellently presented, deserts were of the same high... More

We celebrated my Mum's 60th birthday here with a meal for 10 adults plus a baby. All our guests were blown away by the food prepared by Marcus' team. Marcus was kind enough to give us a private dining experience by setting out "the snug" for our meal and it was perfect as we could dress the room with balloons... More

Myself, husband and friend stayed here last week for my birthday. Two other friends (who lived nearby) drove over to join us for evening meal. A very good experience! Rooms very nicely done, comfy, olde worlde (yet modern internally). Evening meals were all good and we would all w#like to eat here again. Freshly cooked, so service not "fast food"... More

Visited for the first time with the family for Father's Day. The pub/restaurant has a lovely feel, nice decor, homely and welcoming. The staff were, without exception friendly and helpful.

Sorry to say that we have to agree with the last few reviews regarding a slip in standards.We booked a night away at the Crown last September as we really needed to de-stress for 24 hours, and had stayed previously and had a fantastic experience, with the accommodation and food.

Stayed at the Crown in for one night, and it was very good indeed. First impressions - even before we arrived - were good, as the staff let us order our meals whir still on the road from the South, caused by tailbacks on the M25.
