Deconstructed Sandwich !

We were staying with a group of friends in Romaldkirk and eight of us walked to The Crown. As we were going out in the evening we only wanted drinks and snacks. That's what great about the menu - starters and mains come in standard size or small and there are sandwiches and sides of chips etc as... read more

Came here for much needed warmth and a bite post walking the local railway route in the snow. A warm welcome from the staff who offered we could sit wherever. Parked ourselves next to the fire to defrost. We all chose the same: soup of the day (tomato) plus half a sandwich (was listed as steak but more like a... More

We visit every time we are staying in the area, sometimes twice in a week. We have never been dissatisfied with any of the food. Great to have a good veggie, fish menu and real pototo chips. No horrible frozen, cardboard, dry chips here, thank goodness! Today's garlic mushrooms and Monday's fish and chips were excellent. The puddings, well, I... More

We had a lovely meal and a scrumptious pudding. That was several months ago and the pleasing experience has stayed with us, so we plan another visit soon. Wonderfully friendly atmosphere, very relaxing, and dog friendly.

We recently stayed in a cottage nearby and had researched some pubs nearby which needed to be dog friendly. After searching them out found them to be closed for January. On the way back to the cottage we spotted the Crown which was "open all day and every day" so we went in and found it was dog friendly, had... More

We stayed in the micro barn on a cold and windy night after an amazing meal in the pub. Food was delicious as always, the staff were friendly and the service was excellent. Spent a cosy night in the micro barn And then breakfast in the morning was fantastic with wonderful veggie options! We will definitely come and stay again.
