Enjoyable

Was recommended to us and it was all we expected, a lovely cosy pub. My fish tasted really good and my partner had a light option so He had to have a dessert and they really have a tasty selection. Overall it's another place for us to return .

With a range of great beers, very friendly and efficient staff plus a good and reasonably priced menu this is definitely a good place to seek out.

We were staying nearby Heythrop Park and decided to eat out. The Crown was about one minute away so we decided to give it a try - and I'm glad we did! Set in a very quaint village The Crown Inn is an old stone cottage. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food absolutely delicious! It's a... More

Three of us had lunch here: service was good but not outstanding. Food (carrot & leek soup, bubble & squeak, steak pie, sticky toffee pudding, cheese board) were all rated highly. In fact, one of our party always has bubble and squeak! Prices are a little high especially as there is no reduction for more than one course, but still... More

Called in for lunch without prior booking and were found a small table in the restaurant without any problem - I don't suppose we would always be that lucky though. The Sunday lunch menu was very well priced at £18.95 for three courses. Excellent starters of quail scotch egg and cold meat platter. Good hearty main course of chicken with... More

Was expecting a lot better quality than we had, for the money you could have had a quality carvery in a Toby inn location is superb and Interior was very nice just let down I feel by the food.

Called in to break a long journey and was warmly welcomed. A glass of Hooky and a light meal of avocado, prawns and salad was perfectly presented even though the food service hadn't formally started. Flexible, friendly and very tasty food.

Ideal for a Sunday lunch I chose the Crown Inn after reading the glowing TripAdvisor reviews; and, having visited with a group of 6, this quaint pub impressed with its food quality, service and antique interior. We enjoyed dining in this in the Inn's restaurant but there are tables around the bar too. The traditional pub surroundings - no WiFi... More
