We have visited the Crown a couple of times on previous visits to Lynton and made a point of going there again this trip. We chose to eat there the first night and were not dissapointed. The portions were very good and of a good quality for 'Pub Grub'. The staff were efficient, friendly and witty. There is a positive... More

We only stopped for a drink, the place was a bit spit n sawdust and clearly aged and worn out. The guy serving at the bar looked fed up and was not very welcoming, more interested in chatting to a older looking local than ensuring we were made welcome. Doubt very much we will return as we found much better... More

Large portions of traditional pub grub. Dining areas are not large, and it can be a bit dark, but that adds to the pub atmosphere.

We had a couple of evening meals at this pub. The food was very good, in fact we did not have many better meals during the whole week we stayed in Lynton. The pub itself is pretty small and maybe not the nicest one could think of, but the best in Lynton anyway. Absolutely worth visiting.

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 went back for dinner... 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.
