An absolute Gem of a place, lovely accommodation, fantastic food, excellent beer and above all amazing friendly staff and locals. Character full bar area with an open fire is great for meeting friends old and new, quieter restaurant area for more intimate conversations and very pleasant outdoor patio area. Pretty much ticks all the boxes. Go visit and make some... More

This may not be the Hilton, but that's not what you're looking for if you stay in a place like this - hugely friendly service, clean and tidy rooms and bathroom, and all at an excellent price in a beautiful part of the world. The pub itself is very traditional - and everything about our stay reflected that, in a... More

First class food and a warm and friendly atmosphere in a traditional old pub. This was our first visit but would go there again. Nice environment with helpful staff and good food which is all you can ask for.

We were on the way to our grandson's birthday party and stopped for a light lunch at The Crown - so glad we did. Delicious carrot and coriander soup - hearty, tasty and very good value. Followed by some home made chicken pate and granary toast..... we'll be going back to this local "find"

We stayed here for a night at the Bank Holiday weekend. It was a real treat. From the moment we called and booked the room to when we left everybody was friendly and helpful. It just makes all the difference to feel at home in a village location that despite being near the road it was never noisy. The room... More

Found The Crown using good old fashioned Google Maps as we wanted to stop somewhere for Sunday lunch en route from Cambridge to London. Needless to say we were not disappointed! Arrived at 12.40pm having booked a few days before hand (something strongly recommended) and it was already busy. Roast beef, lamb or pork at £12 each with all the... More

Had a wonderful Father's Day meal here yesterday, could not fault the food, ambience and friendly waitresses, place was busy but no long wait, highly recommend, age group 10 to 70, all happy. We will definitely go back, worth the drive from Epping.

Stayed for 3 nights in this unpretentious pub with my daughter. The twin room is bigger than it looks and was both comfortable and quiet despite their being an event on one night on the Village Green. All the staff were great, balancing well the need to leave you in peace and attend to your needs. The food was good... More

Just outside Saffron Walden is The Crown Inn at Little Walden. Seven of us had dinner on a Saturday, ranging from steak (10/10) to chicken salad (11/10) ! Great service, lovely people behind and in front of the bar and the locals were friendly and up for a chat - we even convinced one of them to give us lift... More

Definitely essential to book for Sunday lunch as the place was heaving when we arrived - there is seating inside and out. No menus, you just look at the blackboard. There is something to suit everyone.We all had different things - I had the fish and chips, which was a large portion marred only by the skin left on the... More
