Huge Portions!

On our first night in Lynton we wanted something simple and quick. So we walked to the Crown. The pub was very busy and we were lucky to bag a table. It is obviously a popular venue. We ordered the chicken curry. We had been told beforehand that the portions were quite large and this turned out... read more

Came across this pub on a nice walk through Lynton. Pub has plenty of seating inside and out. I had fish & Chips which was ok but my husband had the curry and half of it was warm the other cold. Obviously microwaved. Took quite a while to be served for drinks, too many locals hogging the bar.

Went in not expecting much but decent pub grub. Ordered the steak which was pretty decent, massive portion of chips and salad. The curry was had by two of our group, again, very tasty and large portions. Would definitely recommend and are planning to go again during our stay in Devon.

Ate here once whilst staying at Jay Cottage. Lively atmosphere with good pub food. Although very busy the staff managed to take the order quickly and served us with a smile. Lovely home cooked meal and real ales.

The beer was fine but the room was a bit lacking in ambiance, we had to find a seat in the back room and it was spartan and uncomfortable, we drank up and left

I had the burger which was good, my daughter had the sausages from the children's menu and liked them as well. The... More
