Nice Meal - Good Beer!

We really enjoyed our meal here, on a busy Good Friday evening. The food was good value (the Venison Pie was excellent). We were treated to a little sample of the beer that we asked for a recommendation for, so that was nice too. The service was good and the staff were friendly. Yea, really enjoyed... read more

Visited the Crown restaurant in Old Basing recently after a recommendation for the food. The waitress had lack of enthusiasm, did not ask if we wanted drinks when all our glasses were empty for some time. On 2 occasions we had to ask for more drinks. Was not asked if we wanted desserts. We decided we would have coffees which... More

enjoyed a delicious dinner at this traditional pub...excellent staff (particularly one bubbly, helpful young lady), fab food, great atmosphere...lovely evening with my daughter :) Quality and quantity of food was perfect (although found the wine-by-the-glass somewhat expensive for a pub)...great British grub in pleasant surroundings!

We were visiting nearby to do a bit of work and were looking for a decent lunch and found the Crown in the Good Food Guide 2015 which sounded nice. A traditional pub in a picturesque village near to Basingstoke which looked like it was still in the 70s but actually done in a retro way. Good local beers to... More

Had lunch with my Wife following a recomendation from a friend and was pleseantly surprised. The quality of the produce used was very high and matched by the service and presentation of the food. The only complaint I might have is that Parking is tight. If you are a visitor to the UK and want a traditional old english pub... More

Booked a table at very short notice for 6 people and they were so accommodating. Food was quite superb and my American clients thought it the best meal they'd had during their visit. Will be back.
