the food was very good except for the vegetables. I prefer well cooked vegetables! The service was excellent and the restaurant was clean and spacious. Altogether a delightful experience which I would like to repeat.

I really liked the way the service works here. Larger parties are served their courses at the same time, none of this waiting around with food getting cold. It's efficient, polite and works with a nice attention to detail. Unusual in a pub restaurant setting. They deserve five stars. The food, on the other hand, is a bit weary looking.... More

We were part of a party of 30+ and found the tables laid out and looking very nice. The room used was crowded and the fire exits had a partially clear route. However, the service and food was excellent and plentiful although the delivery was reasonable. The staff were very friendly and we understand that this is a very popular... More

The Old Crown is exceptional, the staff are on the ball (Margaret is a sweetie) all project the image "I love my job here". The food what's to say? shall I mention the real whitebait, the various fish on offer, or the slow roast free range belly of pork, then the wonderful dessert selection. Great service Fine Food who can... More

We visited on a Sunday lunch time, which was very busy. I have previously eaten here and given in the maximum values. On this occasion there was a problem; initially with getting served and getting the table we had pre-booked. Once that was sorted everything went well and three courses for £17 is good value and not necessarily needed. I... More

We decended on the Old Crown in the dark of a winter's night and emerged well fed and watered. This was a bit of a get together of old friends. The Old Crown was new to us and we were delighted by the decor and attention shown by the staff. The food was good (try the fish) and the wine... More

Visited The Old Crown with some friends we were all impressed with the food. The main courses were well presented, on hot plates, good portions and very tasty. The sweets were excellent - I had the apricot and white chocolate cheesecake with ice cream it didn't disappoint. Service was attentive. The Crown has a large car park it was packed... More

We had an excellent Sunday Lunch at The Old Crown, Girton yesterday. Advance booking advised, as a very popular venue. Plenty of choice on the menu and sensibly priced at £17 for a three course Sunday lunch. We chose the parsnip, celery and apple soup with chunky bread; also gravlax with salad leaves and mustard & dill dressing. Our choice... More
