We have had several drinks here but never stayed before. Room 5 was lovely sloping floors & a very comfortable bed with a small but functional en suite. Tony & Angie are wonderful hosts & the ales are very good. The pub is a work in progress & its fascinating to see the changes at each visit. This is not... More

We were passing the Crown Inn and thought it looked like the place we could get a snack or quick lunch. When we got to the bar and asked for a snack menu we were told it was carvery only and although we did not want anything substantial we took the plunge and paid and went to the serving area....

As a solo business traveller there was so much that I liked about this pub: The hosts, the beer, the breakfast. A few niggles which other contributors have highlighted but overall what fantastic value for money, whether I am paying or my company

I could think of a better place to stay near sherwood forest, the team here is lively and friendly. Good beer served at the bar and loud music makes it all so nice. Free parking and wifi is a plus. Reasonable room size and price. Thanks guys for hosting us.

Homely, warm, fantastic food and great beer - all topped off with a real log fire, great quiz night and loads of friendly folks to chat with. Perfect for business or leisure trips. I can't recommend it strongly enough.

A bit gutted really, my favourite Carvery for miles. We visited this Sunday just gone, the food was just awful, the meat was so dry, the potatoes were hard, very slim choice of veg, you even burnt the shop bought Yorkies.. This is the second time in a few weeks we've come and the food has been rubbish. What really... More

Tony and Angie provided a very hospitable overnight stay in their characterful inn. I could have not been made more welcome by all the staff and regulars, a group of whom played guitar and sang in the bar during the evening. They included me and also gave me maps for local walks. The room was clean and comfortable and had... More

Lovely evening. Angie obviously worked hard creating simple romantic table settings and the choices on her 3 course valentine menu were mouthwatering and hard to choose from, so being romantic we shared a little of each others choices, they were delicious. We had a very enjoyable evening thank you Tony, Angie & all the staff. Mr & Mrs Claus xx

As we go regularly to the Crown Inn, four of us decided to have our Christmas dinner there. What a delight, the pub is full of character and the trouble taken with the Christmas decorations was wonderful, as was the welcome extended to us by Tony and Angie two of the best and hardest workers in the business. The dinning... More

We decided to try this pub for a birthday meal with a couple of friends on Saturday but ended up leaving and going elsewhere else simply because at 7pm the list on the chalkboard of dishes left was pretty poor! No Mixed grills, 1 pork dish, about 4 steaks, I didn't bother counting the rest. 7pm and such a low... More
