Great ambience and charm, Ive eaten a lot of pub food but the cornish haddock and chips was amongst one of the best I've eaten. Super.

We are regulars at The Crown, Old Basing and it never fails to high extremely high standards, every time we go there. The food is exceptional as is the welcome and service you get from "The Team." I had pork belly which was exquisite and my wife had the bass (with brown srimo and chorizo) which was totally different but... More

The Crown is our local but the food is worth travelling for if you live out of the area. They operate a menu with 6 or 7 main courses but these change and cover a wide range of tastes. The quantity of food is good - plenty to satisfy hunger but the quality and imagination used by the chefs is... More

Pricing pub "normal" (our bill for 6 was about... More

Needs a bit of TLC, the decor is really letting this place down...but one thing you can be sure of is that you ll have quality food here. It will be an amazing pub if they could spare some funds to lift its soul, just a new carpet even would add so much to this place.
