My only complaint is that there is nothing to complain about, definitely going back for more, thank you for a great... More

This place is the same as the Riverside Restaurant and Bar so I will write essentially the same review. Good honest food sums it up added to great host Tony and his attentive staff. I went on my own but had a marvellous steak and some great wine. As other contributors have said Don't be mislead by reviews before Tony... More

Been the best roast we have had for long time. Lovely friendly attentive staff and good value for money for such good quality. Will definitely coming back. We asked quite a few questions over food and wine and rather than make it up they spoke to the right people to get the right answer first off.

Lovely pub under new management. We called in for a late Sunday lunch and were very impressed. We shared a ham hock terrine - very good. I had roast beef and my friend had chicken. There was plenty of tender roast beef and half a roast chicken! Fresh veg, boiled and roast potatoes and a lovely fluffy Yorkshire pudding. The... More

First time in since the staff change, and what a breath of fresh air. A decent menu (I think the old one had been unchanged since 1988) and most impressive of all, very attentive, fast service. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the starter dishes were taken away just as we finished and the main course arrived 1-2... More

Had our second meal at the new crown. Both times food excellant and great atmosphere. Landlord is everything that you would want as a host and is assisted by his excellant staff. Will definitely be eating there more often.

New landlord (decent guy as well) and new chef, great views from resturant and a decent menu. It's well worth a look as it's always had masses of potential, I'm going this Saturday and will review after that.

An order for food was made at 1325 and it turned up at 1420. Our order was for two salad based dishes ie cold and when I queried the delivery at around 1400 I was told that it was nearly ready along with everyone else's. No hint of an apology for the delay, in fact I felt the reply was... More
