Very good lunch for four - four different main courses and three different puddings, all very good. Very generous helpings of good tasting food at a reasonable price. The Old Crown has been very consistent and is our favourite place to eat in the area. Criticisms? Service varies a little, but is always at least OK. Wines are OK, but... More

Eaten at the Old Crown on many occasions and this time felt a bit let down. The food was the normal good quality, apart from them insisting on giving you the same veg side dishes regardless of whether you are having meat or fish, who wants to eat carrots with fish?? It was more the ambience and the staff I... More

I went to the Old Crown for dinner on a Saturday evening with my husband and mother in law who are from the area and had been many times before. We booked relatively late so were pleased they could accommodate us, however when we arrived there was much confusion as the person who had taken our booking hadn't written it... More

I went to meet a friend from university earlier this month in his home town and he recommended we visit the old crown. It was a lovely setting and was nice to catch up. The food was lovely 'pub grub' and was served in large portions at a reasonable price with a range of choices available on the menu. I... More

The Old Crown is a great place to go especially when you're hungry. The portions are enormous and the fish is really well cooked. On Monday they offer a special deal , two main courses, a sharing dessert platter and two drinks for £30. Really good value. Friendly service

After looking for a local option for a Sunday roast and reading the tripadvisor reviews I opted for The Old Crown and couldn't have been happier with my choice. The restaurant was full of extremely happy customers enjoying their large portions of good quality, well-cooked food which meant that the atmosphere was very pleasant. We were served very quickly by... More

This is the place to go when you want to impress visitors/friends as the menu is plentiful, the food great and you are made to feel very welcome and not rushed. We've been 4 times now with different friends and family and all have been very happy. Main courses prices are fair. I just love the fantastic choices from the... More

I have not eaten out for months (retired from work) but met an old friend visiting from Essex, so easy to decide on the Old Crown , Girton, again. Most delightful salmon fish dish, wonderful tasty broccoli and the best Mocha coffee I have tasted for years! I visited Friday Lunch, and should have booked as very popular, but did... More
