We visited for a family meal and it was not good at all. The veal which we normally have was tough, we had to send it back. The onion rings incredibly greasy. The burgers had not been seasoned. Very disappointing - having visited frequently for the last few years I do not think we will return. The staff were very... More

Great food. Veal and skinny fries is my favourite. Great service and fab fish and chips to take home. Family business superbly run.

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 love this restaurant/pub, stepping inside made us feel as though we were visiting a little French Restaurant. The atmosphere is relaxing and welcoming. Our food this evening ( this being our 3rd visit) was gorgeous. Freshly cooked, a beautiful rump steak was delicious and my partner was very impressed with the Ale!! Excellent service and every seat full on... 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.
