Did not expect the food to be as good. Had whitebait for starter and broccoli and stilton soup for main that were both delicious. Good portion size and inexpensive. Pub a bit tired looking but very friendly barman and good service.

A friendly local spot with a good menu of pub food, well prepared. The delight is in the presentation, though: fish 'n chips dressed to resemble a cod, burger beneath a tower of onion rings. Reasonably priced; good selection of local ciders and ales.

We ate two burgers in June at the Crown: portions were really generous and food tasted good. There were nice real ales available on tap.

A lovely old pub with low ceilings and little rooms. The food was good but I seriously think the other half and I could have shared one meal! :)

We very much enjoyed our meals here which were good value for money. A good choice of St Austell ales as well with a warm glow from the wood burner.

We were staying nearby so this was the first pub we tried, and didn't look any further. The trad ale went down very well, and on our last night in Lynton we decided we had to try the mammoth fish and chips we had seen been served earlier in the week. We were not disappointed! Great value for money.
