Had a very late lunch/early supper (?) on a Saturday - not always the best time of the week to eat. Have to say the food was excellent, pastry superb. Staff very friendly if slightly inexperienced. Nice atmosphere and location. Have eaten here before although not recently but nevertheless did expect a good meal. Menu was good and varied, would... More

Came here for a Sunday roast. We were both disappointed with the food, I had the lamb and my husband had the beef. The roast potatoes looked nice and crispy on the outside but when we tried them they were really chewy and difficult to eat. They appeared as though they had been re-heated. The Yorkshire pudding had been over... More

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
