Best Sandwiches Ever!

This has to be the best place for sandwiches that we have been. We especially recommend the sausage one.....with the double cooked chips ....heaven. Do check though as this can be seasonal as we have found sometimes to out horror....no sausages lol.

Lovely pub, nice garden and superb food. Mum had a great goat's cheese salad, and my Ham egg and chips were simply superb. Good service too. How English country pubs should be.

We visited with friends and can honestly say we would never return. The food was sub standard as was the service. Staff are not interested. Any constructive criticism is taken badly as I had previously left a review and it was removed. The soup was watery and taseless, the main course was fish which was cooked in what seemed to... More

We are enough to be within walking distance to this pub. We booked for dinner and on a Tuesday evening and were warmly welcomed. We enjoyed a relaxing drink before dinner then embarked on 3 delicious courses. I recommend the scotch egg and the steak! The chateauneuf du pape was beautiful! Worth every penny! This was a special occasion but... More

We ate here on Thursday night, I called to book a table as I wanted to know if it was dog friendly. The service was lovely - friendly, efficient and the dogs were made a fuss of. The food was excellent, the Tunworth starter was fab as was the tomato tart, for our main courses we had the fish special,... More

Went to The Crown last Thursday as recommended by colleagues at work. The service was great with all the staff friendly and very helpful, they even brought over some treats for our dogs. We all had starters and mains which were excellent and good sized portions, which meant we were all too stuffed for pudding......will be back

Worst pub lunch in a long time!! Triple cooked chips? Chunks of potato reheated over 3 days perhaps. Very disappointed. I last came here a few years ago and the food was always consistently good. Such a shame.

I met with a friend for dinner here as its almost her local. I'd heard the food was good in here so we went to check it out. The pub itself is right on the road and is small but quaint. They serve simple pub grub but done really well. I thoroughly enjoyed my ham egg and chips and would... More
