We visited The Crown for dinner last night. I have been a lot over the years for dinner and the food has always been great and you could pretty much guarantee a quieter meal if you sat in the restaurant but not this time unfortunately. We took my parents out for dinner and it was my husbands first time in... More

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent lunch here today, the food was of top quality and freshly cooked and definitely worth the wait (not that long really). We both had the beef which melted in the mouth and was served with dauphonise potatoes, carrots, onion strips and greens, and to follow I choose the pear and blackberry crumble and... More

The Crown used to be one of my favourite places in Stamford. I popped in for a Sunday lunch last weekend and was very surprised to find that they had a spare table. Whilst being showed to our table I realised why... The restaurant has been refurbished in the theme of a 1960s diner cum railway station. Complete with a... More

We visit here usually for Sunday lunch which is the best in the area. Positives: attentive staff, varied menu, nice decor, central location, reasonably priced. Negatives: Vey few, maybe a few more "special desserts". Overall, we go back because it's consistently good and is also part of a wider group of local eateries.

We had been before and enjoyed eating in the dining room. This time we found them in the middle of refurbishment so had to eat in a make-do dining area. Food was enjoyable and HUGE portions. Waitresses friendly and helpful, but atmosphere and surroundings were lacking - hopefully will be better when dining room opens (we missed it by about... More

Deciding on a venue for a birthday celebration this week was easy. We heard that the Crown had a new owner, new chef and a new menu. We were NOT dissapointed, our meals where fantastic! I had the Cod and my friend had the braised beef, service was top notch by friendly, smiling staff! The decor is on the up... More

I don't think I have ever posted a negative review but my visit to The Crown yesterday was truly awful. We visit The Crown fairly regularlyfor drinks/food - yesterday we decided to visit for an afternoon coffee in the sun on a lazy Sunday. I usually love visiting the place and really love the new decor, however yesterday's visit was... More

I had the good fortune to have lunch with my wife and 2 close friends yesterday where we all (each couple) decided to have the meat sharing platter. I have to say that the standard of the meal was beyond reproach in regards to quality and amount. When you add to,that the correct level,of attentiveness given by the staff further... More

Today I took my mother to lunch at the 'Crown'. The new décor is stunning such a lovely atmosphere. All the staff were very attentive and friendly. The new menu is superb !! There is a broad range offering light lunches and sharing platters to more home cooked comfort food. Everything is FRESH all made to order and you can... More
