We stayed one night here which was enough. The landlord was friendly but too busy to deal with us and although the bar area was OK and the range of drinks was good, the food was very average and the accommodation poor. The pub is a C16th inn and we realise that comes with limitations, but our room had glass... More

Having cycled part of the Forest Way we decided to stop at the Crown Inn for lunch. Newly refurbished and with lovely staff we sat in the bar with our labrador. The wood fire was blazing and the leek and potato soup in a cob loaf was tasty and hot! Just what we needed to carry on on our journey:-)

The owners could not have been more helpful and I really enjoyed my night at the Crown and breakfast the following morning. Mine was a last minute booking to attend a wedding in the area, but had I known how lovely the Crown and surrounding area were, I would have booked the previous night to enjoy what looked to be...

My wife and I stayed for one night for a recent nearby family party. Beautiful 16th Century Inn with nice accommodation. Good range of beers and wine, and a really nice varied menu. Food sourced locally and really tasty. Full marks to the kitchen staff. Landlord really friendly and helpful; couldn't do enough to make our stay really enjoyable. Only... More

I booked all of the rooms at The Crown Inn for a weekend at the end of July. The food was not great, and the rooms weren't much better. The door to my room was poorly boxed in with plywood and the window didn't shut. The random furnishings were rather tatty, and didn't live up to the wonderful exterior of... More

As a multiple visitor to this pub/inn it has always had a simple charm with very good food. The new owners started off well fixing up the restaurant and adding nice linen cloths etc. But they let the chef go and it has lost its charm. The food is average, the breakfast is skimpy and it shows all the signs... More

Positives: Room was clean, bed was comfy. Nice fluffy towels and pillows. Food ok, good breakfast. Negatives: The fact that the website didn't mention that none of the rooms were en-suite. There is 1 toilet and 1 shower for all 4 rooms to share, however, there were washing facilites in our room. Reasonable price but probably wouldn't stay for more... More

We spent a night at the Crown at the weekend. The new owners had only been there four days and they'd already revamped the snug and the dining room, and the bedrooms are next on their list. They were super-friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was great. Go!

We were almost put off by the other review but couldn't find anywhere else to stay so decided to give it a go. It's fairly basic, but the bed was comfortable and the food was good, with reasonably friendly staff. Perfectly fine for a night.
