My wife and I went to The Crown last night armed with a Groupon voucher which cost £22. We had a 2 course dinner each and enjoyed mouth full. Starters were broccoli soup and I had an amazing (must have been homemade) terrine with ham, duck and chicken, delicious. Lemon sole for main and for me was belly pork, all... More

It's been some time since we dined at the Crown. We found it a bit pricey for the portion sizes the last visit. Last week we decided to give it another try, and celebrate my wife's birthday with a meal there. I ordered the beef in ale pie. I was really disappointed. The individual pie had obviously been thawed from... More

We visit here quite often for lunch and have always enjoyed good imaginative food at a reasonable price. The food appears to be made and cooked fresh and a good choice of wines and beers are available to accompany such visits. It is nice to know you can always rely on a place, in particular if you invite someone else... More

We were staying at Heythrop Park and this restaurant was so, so convenient! There were 3 or 4 places we were considering, and I am really pleased I chose the Crown. The food and the wine were both excellent although my partner struggled to finish the great steak and ale pudding :o) I had the Pollock with garlic Mash and... More

We have visited The Crown regularly over the years and always enjoy the food. There is always a warm welcome and the service is excellent. A favourite is the fab steak and ale pie. Scrumptious! I love desserts and The Crown never disappoints - home made white chocolate cheesecake is just divine. I would strongly recommend this pretty pub for... More

I had 3 lovely visitors from Italy for 2 nights who wanted to experience "English pub and food". The whole experience was brilliant. Caroline and her staff were so helpful as I juggled arrangements with no idea of their purse strings and tastes...... First of all Caroline booked the lovely table in the bar right by the roaring log fire.... More
