Great food, great ambience

For us Aussies, it is just like we picture English pubs - cosy, friendly with an open fire. And the food was even better than we expected. In addition is has interesting, cleverly painted murals on the walls. And there was even a good singer there on the Saturday night. We liked it so much we... read more

Nothing wrong with the food really , but nothing to remember either. Three out of five tells it all, OK but that's it.

Food was amazing and far superior to normal 'Pub Grub'. As the evening wore on, the bar did get a bit rowdy, but we arrived about an hour before food service stopped. Owners were friendly and handled the crowd well. Definitely would go back, just earlier in the evening.

limited menu. But it does what it says it will. Food honest and as the menu States. But be warned portions are large. Worth a visit if you want value for your money.

I'd read some of the negative reviews here and was nervous about eating at The Crown Hotel, but as soon as we walked in there I started to change my mind. Beyond the bar is a neat and comfortable restaurant. The staff were pleasant, the locals were having fun, and when it came to food... ordered burgers, which came with... More

Cosy environment, great pub food, and nice ales. I was impressed that they had several vegetarian options on the menu. I got the curry, which was tasty but a wee bit spicy. The fish and chips were fantastic. Very relaxed place, a number of locals stopping in with their dogs. Definitely a good stop in Lynton after a day walking!

Dog friendly, as is most of the area. Basic pub grub at affordable prices. Limited menu, but one that worked. The butterfly prawns particularly good. We ordered fish and chips, which was average, but ok. The burger looked very good however, so would go for that next time. Very friendly staff.
