I was taking part in a B&B television reality TV programme, and was put up at The Crown Inn between reviewing competitors' hotels. Well I thought it beat the lot! It is privately run, the rooms and food are of the highest quality, and the service first rate. When I found out all of this cost less than £100 for... More

We were looking for a family get together that we could regularly use and The Crown sounded ideal for our weekend get togethers. We wanted an outside play area for our granddaughter and firstly the play area was just tables and we were greeted by three barking dogs. Very unwelcoming, we did not stay and will not return.

We stayed at the crown after seeing a deal on Groupon. We weren't expecting too much as we only paid £70 per couple which included bed and breakfast, afternoon tea and a £10 voucher off the evening meal! Afternoon tea was delicious, great value for money! They kept topping up the tea. Evening meal was really good, we all had... More

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.
