I've been here a dozen times or more mainly because it's close and cheap. Most of the food is fair, but I've got to say the mash is... well, YUCK. I have no idea how the mash is made, but it really does taste mega starchy and sticky as if they have peeled and mashed a plain jacket potato... ?... More

We ate here as a party of ten on Saturday and had the most fantastic meals. The service from staff was absolutely second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending The Crown. Lovely for us to meet the owners at the end of the evening too. Special thanks to our waiter Elliott and chef Sam.

The prices in this pub were higher than the Prince of Wales and The Barrington Arms, but the food was a let down. The meat in my Steak and ale pie was tough and two others in the group said the pork was chewy. Fish and chips were said to be fine. Tables rather close - a very noisy group... More

A small quirky restaurant, with good atmosphere and excellent food. This was our third visit over the last year and as always there was a good selection on the menu along with the specials board. The service was well timed and attentive without being intrusive, just a quick glance and the waiter would check what we wanted. We shared the... More

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
