Great atmosphere. Fantastic fish and chips!

Always have a warm welcome here. The restaurant is rustic but very cosy and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The food is locally sourced and freshly cooked. Absolutely delicious! We have a family celebration booked here for later this year.

Met up here with two friends, one a local lass - and this pub was her recommendation. And a very good recommendation it duly proved. Excellent food (I had the burger) which had the effect of temporarily silencing the lively "catch-up" conversation...not for want of news but in order to properly enjoy the meal. Tasty, well presented and nicely balanced.... More

I don't visit Shrivenham often. But when I do, a meal at The Crown is essential - it keeps alive my belief that fresh ingredients, simply cooked, is what matters in a meal to remember. And which one always wants to return to. The landlady is a warm and excellent hostess - she and her team are readily on hand... More

I eat here quite often, as my mum lives in the village and we always go here for lunch. Mum says the evening meals are very good too! Always a warm and friendly welcome from the staff, the food is delicious, generous portions and served piping hot! The menu is varied and there is always a specials board too. The... More

We had a fantastic meal. The staff are really firendly and they come and tell you what is on the specials board. We were impressed by the way they were going through a refit and still managed to serve up some lovely food would go back again in the future

Trip Advisor lists this superb pub as The Crown, 11 High Street, Swindon but it is in the main street of Shrivenham, five miles from Swindon and nearer Faringdon.. Post code SN6 8AN. Do go an find it as the lovely pub is beautifully decorated; the landlady friendly and helpful and the food divine! There is a pleasant courtyard garden... More

We booked a table for 10 for my husband's 50th birthday celebrations. We had pre-odered and found the restaurant full when we arrived. Nevertheless, the staff were attentive to our needs. The food was excellant, as always it is. The staff are always friendly and the food excellant, and a good atmosphere. What more could you want?

Dropped by The Crown today for a quick late lunch. We were greeted very warmly and advised of the specials. Everything sounded delicious. In the interest of time we chose a duck and hoisin wrap. It was served with delicious thin fries and a little green salad. Just what we wanted. We will be back very soon!

We had eaten here a couple of years ago when we lived in shrivenham, and decided to come back for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant has a slightly quirky layout which is part of its charm, however it can still suit couples as well as small groups. The menu along with the special board is very comprehensive with a good... More

Having been unable to get a table in our usual restaurant, we drove into nearby Shrivenham to see if we could find somewhere else to get a Sunday lunch and happened upon this little gem. There was plenty of choice on the menu; as well as the Sunday carvery (today it was lamb or beef) there was a wide choice... More
