We have just arrived back form a cottage holiday in Mickleton and thought The Crown was by far the best place we ate during our stay and trip around around the area. The meal was of a very high standard, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Our teenagers especially loved the dessert platter, incidentally the best taster desserts we have ever... More

Lovely food, especially the twice cooked beef. Also loved the fact they do smaller portions. The interior is very nice and the staff very friendly and helpful.

Just back from a wonderful meal at the Crown.. We arrived early (5.30ish)and were given a very warm welcome.. Food is available all day which is great. I love the fact that nearly everything comes in smaller sizes including puddings.. So brilliant for kids. My 7 year old had mussels and loved them.. My 6 year old had the beef... More

This is a fabulous pub that is a fantastic restaurant. I particularly liked the fact that they do all food in starter and main course sizes. We ended up going for a selection of starters to share amongst us... That way we got to try lots more of the delicious food. The staff were helpful and friendly and it had... More

Having a nice drive in the country and decided to pop into this pub for a late lunch. Despite looking like they had been very busy we were warmly welcomed and served a well cooked lunch with the feel of home made. I particularly liked the starter of Yorkshire pudding with wet salad taking me back to my childhood in... More

It has been a while since I've eaten here, but so pleased to say the food is just as good as I remembered it! The restaurant has been extended and it has a lovely feel to it, warm and welcoming. The food was delicious and I certainly took advantage of the special offer for English Tourism week. Dessert was divine,... More

Called to try the fish and chip special on a Monday evening and would certainly return. Real chips and lovely white fresh fish with mushy peas and tartare sauce. Warm and cosy environment with a lovely hot stove to sit next to on cosy seats. Was not that busy but that was not a problem and it was a Monday... More
