Food in quantity, not quality

Had the lamb shoulder from the bar menu in the evening, which was, albeit massive, largely fat and gristle with the meat looking very grey. Lumpy, unseasoned mash with, to be fair, well cooked veg. Selection of drinks was lacking; service was generally good. Not great, not terrible.

Breakfast very limited and no choice for anything healthy (apart from a small bowl of fruit salad). Dinner - had fish & chips - fish was full of bones... no idea why people batter cod without removing the bones?! Just annoying and wasn't enjoyable. Piri Piri chicken was OK, as was the Scampi. Just average really.

Had a Sunday Lunch here as they have a Carvery for £7.95, which is great value. The food was OK but not outstanding, would I go again, probably not as there is plenty of far nicer places to have Sunday lunch.

The vegetables were terrible, over cooked and the cabbage was whole leaves! A lot of thought needs to put into presentation of food. The cook kept disappearing so customers were left waiting to be served at the carvery.

Dined here pre Christmas and again a few weeks ago on the occasion of a friend's 70th birthday. On both occasions the food was very good and the service also good. This restaurant has not had the best of names in the past but it is clear that the present management and staff are doing their best to restore their... More

Good value and pleasant staff. Plenty of meat at the carvery and cooked beautifully. There was an odd/small selection of veg to choose from - could have done with perhaps one more item?

If you are shopping or just passing through do try The Crown Hotel in Brackley for a meal and will not be disappointed. Whilst the surroundings are in need of renovation you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and food at prices which provide great value for money. The Bar menu can be a bit limited but... More

While staying in Brackley we choose to eat in the Crown Hotel. We were quickly shown to our table and choose the steak special which was 2 steaks and a bottle of house wine for £25. Service was friendly and attentive. The food arrived a short time after the wine and was very tasty. The steak was a good size,... More
