Attended a retirement event here and thoroughly enjoyed it. It has an old world feel to it, its full of character which reflects its three hundred year history, and lots of nooks and crannies which help it maintain its traditional feel. A great little pub. We had a portion of the bar and a dining area allocated to us, and... More

I visited this pub due to a friend having her retirement celebration there. The pub is old fashioned style, not my personal taste but some people might like it. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and cleared away plates and glasses efficiently to avoid tables getting full. We were all charged £10 each for the buffet which I... More

We at the crown always welcome feed back from our visitors and Like the opportunity to address you review. The Crown Inn is a 15th century inn with a grade 2 listing, so to say it is old fashioned we would take as a compliment to knock walls out and modernise the building would be robing the public of the...

We went on Friday night primarily to see a live band, 'Acoustica', so decided to go early and have dinner. What a lovely pub. Tony and his wife, and the rest of the staff, are all really friendly, welcoming and helpful. This pub does everything - it has a proper bar area and is a proper local pub, there is... More

We stayed as a family of 9 for a 60th anniversary for my parents. Friday night around the bar we were introduced to many of the locals and were a bit delicate in the morning. Tony and Angie were very welcoming and proved to be great hosts. The inside of the bar is very rustic, breakfast a typical full English.... More

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.

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

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
