At a very good price, this is one of our favourite restaurants for a Sunday carvery. There are generous portions of meat and fresh vegetables, and the landlord is very friendly and welcoming. The Crown is a lovely old pub in the heart of Higham and serves a variety of different beers.

Everything about the stay was excellent Tony, Angie and Luke and their staff made us all feel welcome and part of the family and nothing was too much trouble. Also how nice it... More

Tony and Ange are turning The Crown around and not before time. They are bringing back the village pub it used to be, where both locals and visitors are able to enjoy the lively atmosphere. The pub is usually busy on Friday night with a convivial scene around the bar. More could be done to encourage locals to visit the... More

This was our second visit and as before we found everything to be of the best. Tony and Angie made us very welcome and made us feel part of the family. The rooms are very clean, the breakfast was very substantial and the evening meals were excellent and of a very high standard. The staff looked after us very well... More

I doubt anyone would consider a repeat visit based on my experiences. With a sense of sadness and regret I must say two nice people have embarked on a business of which they clearly know very little. Lovely welcome, worn out facade, barricaded drive entrance to the car park, inedible food, on one occasion a Staff member refused to serve... More

We booked The Crown for the location, which is handily placed for walks, cycling and wonderful scenery. The welcome we received was second to none and we really only want to give a positive review because Tony and Angela have their vision of how they want to present the inn, and they do get the welcome and the homely, relaxing...

was looking for somewhere cosy in the country to read my book and found this gem. With comfy sofas and a relaxing atmosphere this place is ideal. As it was a sunday there was no 'standard menu' on the Carvery menu...I didn't want a big lunch so they made a small Sunday Lunch for £3.65 which was plenty big enough!... More
