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

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

I stayed at The Crown with 3 collegues for 3 nights whilst working in one of the nearby villages. Steve and Sue provided every requirement, the rooms were clean and very comfortable, the food was amazing (I recommend the Steak and Mushroom Pie) and the hospitality was second to none from all of the staff. Waking up (fortunately to good... More

The owners of the pub were very welcoming as were all the staff all in all it was a really great afternoon, would recommend The... More

I had lunch here today- Chicken Madras was tasty and I enjoyed it. good size portion for under £10. My companion had a burger and chips that he didn't enjoy too much. Place was packed for lunch, Nice pint - good atmosphere and friendly staff. They are dog friendly too.

Room was comfortable clean and quirky. Little on the small size if I was with my partner. But otherwise well laid out and had all you would expect - TV, tea/coffee facilities and ensuite. Staff are incredibly friendly and accomodating. The food in the bar is extremely good and well-priced. In fact for a Weds the bar was busy with... More
