Very nice indeed

A nice lunch for 2. Beautiful wine, perfect portions, priced perfectly to let you know that it is value for money. 3 courses, well presented plates...not the typical la dee da pub grub...you can tell that pride is taken in what is served. Thank you!

I went with my husband to his Christmas party and I did enjoy the food and the service. The only downfall is they don't have too many options for vegetarians. But the one they got are well presented and good. The staff were good.

We had Sunday lunch here recently, we had high hopes. Arrived at 1.00 pm to a completely empty restaurant/eating area, just a few people at the bar. Oh well we thought perhaps it's early! Some of us ordered the roast beef and one of us ordered the battered fish & chips. Firstly the roast beef meal was average at best,... More

First time diners. Staff cold and unwelcoming. Bar crowded, awkward for getting drinks. Bread lovely but not enough and only very small amount of butter. Chips may be triple fried but not by the chef. Obviously bought in. Cod slightly suspiciously uniform in shape and size. Gooey chocolate desert very good but again skimpy on the clotted cream. Dining room... More

We came across The Crewe Arms by total chance on our way back from a long weekend in I O W . We arrived after 2pm on a Sunday Lunch and whilst there is an eating area the drinking/relaxing areas have been maintained so it's not just a restaurant serving beer as some have turned into.Good range of Real ale...

The Crewe Arms is located in the tiny village of Hinton-in-the-Hedges and to get there you've got to be willing to drive down a single track road (which means single lane with a bit of paving on either side to allow cars to pull over to let the other guy pass). This is a very old pub but aesthetically updated... More

Happened to visit on the 'sausage' night - locally made and delicious. The whole meal was incredibly tasty! Mash to die for! Also, tried the Saturday brunch menu the other week - first class!!!!!
