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

The Crown is under new management and its so much better than before. The previous tenant scared the life out of us! The new staff were polite and didnt pressure or rush us, and the food was well worth the wait. It was to die for, really lovely. Will definitely go back.

Went to this restaurant for a lunch expecting nice pub food. What we actually got was a microwaved lasagne, frozen in the middle in a bowl that was steaming hot! Then as an alternative I got given cold ham and runny egg (I do not like runny egg) for £8.50! Absolutely dreadful. At least my kids enjoyed their sausages. I... More

We were really pleased the Crown re opened & were looking forward to our lunch. There was no warning the order would take a long time .The pub didn't appear busy. We waited 1 hour 25 minutes for scampi, fish & ribs. If we hadn't paid in advance we would have left. We asked twice if our order was nearly... More

We had dinner at the Crown last night. Although we live locally, we haven't been there for years as the previous tenant was well below par and the food was mediocre in the extreme. The new management were very friendly and we had excellent meals, I h ad a super steak and my husband had an excellent gammon. Good choice... More

We were very sad when The Crown closed temporarily but the new landlord is slowly pulling the place around. We had a meal there recently which was superb and we both ate well for £20. Our only complaint is the landlord's appearance. He will insist on wearing old cardigans and baseball caps & never looks very smart! The small bar... More

Honestly, this quintessential British pub has turned itself around in the last few months, the service is amazingly friendly and well presented. The array of beers and other beverages on offer has increased at a well placed price point. Steadily over the last few months since recent new management has moved in, you can see this particular pub becoming one... More

The best pub in Manningtree, the place I most look forward to going at the weekend. Lovely views of the river and excellent people too. The new management are fantastic and are incredibly welcoming, I honestly couldn't recommend the Crown of Manningtree any higher

We turned up very early in the day as we had taken my father out for lunch. The pub had only just opened but we were given a very warm and friendly welcome. We sat and admired the view while we waited a very short time for our lunch and each of us had an excellent meal and delicious desserts.... More
