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

After dropping by a couple of times on Friday nights on the off chance and finding it full, we booked and got seats on a Saturday night without a problem - seems you can never tell which nights are going to be busy (incl mid-week) according to the owners so if you are driving to Shrivenham it's always worth phoning...
