Having met up with friends in the Crown for drinks. We proceeded to order drinks at the bar. Half way through our order the bartender was asked to change the TV channel outside. Upon which he disappeared leaving us standing there like lemons! After he returns we then get the wrong wine we ordered... Not a good start. We find... More

We met members of our family for an evening meal. Place was relaxed with just the right level of good attentive service. Very good menu selection available - just go their website and download the menu for ideas in advance. I settled for their beef and ale pie for mains and was impressed. Nice selection of cheeses available for dessert... More

We popped into The Crown on BH Sunday. We sat in the bar, a different selection of furniture gave it a relaxed feel. The bar staff were very slow, they offered to send a waiter to take our food order but he didn't appear. Our food order was eventually taken back at the bar but then a waiter did come... More

We called into the Crown on a very wet cold Bank Holiday lunch time, it was lovely, warm and welcoming. The staff were busy getting ready for lunch service but still had time to speak to us and make us feel welcome. The food was very good, my husband had a very succulent gammon steak and I had their famous... More

A group of 8 of us went for a sunny bank holiday afternoon in a beer garden. We chose The Crown. Never again. The service was an absolute joke, but this is hardy surprising given that the average age of the staff appeared to be 18. And the lack of choice of wines was blamed on the bank holiday being... More

I would just like to say I have never even visited The Crown but each time I have called to make an enquiry the service has been extremely rude! The person I have spoken to has always sounded very preoccupied and busy and unfriendly. Based on this alone I can safely say this is a place I will not be... More

Awful service, even from the manager who clearly needs a hand or some more staff. No staff presence, no service skills. The tables and lack of table mats contribute to the place feeling like a boozer. Decent food at a price you'd expect, but what's the point in having decent food when there's no one to serve it and it's... More

We booked a table for lunch on Saturday, when we eventually got it the food was quite good, but oh dear what poor service. My wife and i had visited this establishment about 10 years ago and had been impressed then, sadly things have gone down hill since then. Admittedly the place was busy, but that is no excuse for...
