Recommended by our holiday cottage owner. Good local meat cooked to perfection and presented with fresh vegetables and home grown herbs. Well above average pub grub with some excellent deserts. 8 of us ate 2 courses and had a drink each for £20 a head

We were staying in the area for a week and visited the Crown twice - once on the Monday for a fish and chip supper and again the next day for lunch. Despite turning up at 5:00pm, we were told that there wee only haddock pieces available and we would have to vacate our table by 6:35! We had obviously... More

This pub had been recommended to us by friends and it was very good. All the food was freshly prepared and very tasty. The beef burger that I had was lovely. Well worth a visit.

On this occasion my hubby and I popped in for a drink and bowl of chips after a walk...excellent chunky chips (crispy outside and flavourful, soft inside). Good atmosphere and very busy (early Sat evening). The food has been recommended to me also, in particular the 'twice cooked beef'. I will return to try it...

I stayed in a B&B in Middleton Teesdale and they recommended cafe 1618 and The Crown to me for food... When 1618 was a let down I did not expect much here. I was blown away the bread and hummus platter was to die for and very reasonably priced and the twice cooked beef was mouth watering.. Staff were lovely,... More

Went yesterday, called in for meal but was not to be. Looks like a normal pub on the outside but good old fashioned pub grub was no where in site. Sat at table , picked up menu and got the biggest shock ever out of three of us my partner was the only person that could find something on the... More

The staff were very welcoming and filled up the dog water bowl for us (and we noticed the bags of treats for sale) The items on the menu sounded delicious it was difficult to choose, but we had plenty of...

I visited The Crown pub this evening on a drive back from Penrith Country Show. I was with three others and we all ordered the homemade burgers (with fries, salad and onion rings) which were delicious!! The pub was clean and had a very friendly atmosphere! The service was excellent and they even allowed our little pup to join us... More
