I read a few reviews whilst looking for somewhere for Sunday lunch and most were quite favourable. On arrival we were greeted warmly by a very presentable young lady and shown to our table. First impressions were that the room was spacious and light with comfortable seating. Within minutes we were served our drinks whilst browsing the menu. There were... More

After a 7.5mile walk around Romaldkirk and Cotherstone we finished up here for lunch. It was most enjoyable and has a pleasantly sited beer garden.

Visited for meal earlier this week but overall a disappointing experience. Service was very slow and poor, we were kept waiting 15 minutes before drinks order was taken despite being shown from the bar to a table. Only 2 bar staff/ waiters, one of whom a very inexperienced youth. Food when it eventually came was excellent but up to 20+... More

Called for a pre booked meal with our daughter and her boyfriend. Service was efficient and friendly and food excellent. The twice cooked beef was delicious and the star of the evening was the licorice and toffee ice cream. Always worth a visit, then a few more.

Ate here on recommendation, lovely place and most staff attentive, but the food was just disappointing, we had Barny bangers (2), tempura chicken and haddock and chips. At over £11 for each main, the value vs quality leaves wasn't worth it. Fish batter greasy and haddock very wet, likewise for the chicken in batter, which came with skinny chip and... More

We were holidaying in the area last October and called in to the Crown for dinner. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food. So decided to visit again on this holiday! We did not book but were accommodated. There have been some further changes to the land and layout of the pub which was great since our last visit! There was... More

We stayed in the micro-barn with our two young children, yes it is small but advertised as such, and the attention to detail in the accommodation is outstanding. The staff were very welcoming and warm, excellent service throughout our stay. The food was fantastic especially the tempura cauliflower. Breakfast was great, the minted black pudding a new favourite. We all... More

We've just returned from spending seven nights staying on the pubs own caravan site and ate their five times. The food is excellent, the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. One of the great things for us was that you can take dogs inside although I realise that may not be a selling point for some. I particularly recommend the... More

Just returned from a 3 night stop at this CL site. The largest pitches ever, cleanliness excellent. It was wonderful that you could either have takeaways or eat in the Pub, the quality of the food was also excellent and at a very reasonable price, a discount for CC members. Very nice toilet/shower room. Staff could not be more friendly... More
