Great pub

Nice pub in a lively area. Great to sit outside on a sunny day. Would highly recommend. Gets very busy in bank holidays etc but we'll worth it. Also do fabulous sandwiches.

Our dog (a small well behaved KCC) having been refused entry to another pub in Old Basing was made very welcome here. Obviously one expects an area restriction in a location where people are eating, but the staff were polite and friendly, the coffee was fantastic and the little pieces of homemade fudge were a lovely surprise. Definitely coming back,... More

We wanted to go out for an anniversary lunch and discussed the pros and cons, with a lady in a local shoeshop, of other pubs we have visited when in the area. She told us that the Crown was very good and got the post code for our sat Nav. When we arrived in the lovely little village there were... More

We went with friends for lunch, menu choice was good. Staff very helpful and friendly and our orders arrived fairly quickly after our drinks. The food was good value for the price, tasty good quantity. Overall I would definitely recommend a visit, you won't be disappointed.

The last time I ate at The Crown was about 4 years ago and I wasn't impressed with the very restricted menu and lack of choice. So after about 4 years I decided to try again. Unfortunately the menu is still not very extensive, and I have read responses by Fallon re cooked fresh, locally sourced etc etc but come... More

My girlfriend and I visited The Crown last night and had a lovely meal, staff were very friendly and polite. We started with olives and pork crackling, both of which were fantastic. For starters we had soup of the day (broccoli and truffle oil) and breaded Tunworth (fabulous). we both had steak which was cooked to our liking and very... More

Visited tonight for a celebration with friends. Arrived @ 8pm, the bar and restaurant were very busy. Which was a good sign. I had the most amazing salmon starter, followed by a 25oz rib of beef, cooked to perfection I might add. Great selection of pre- dinner cocktail available and wine list was varied with some interesting blends. Gracious and... More

Service was friendly and efficient. Our food was beautifully cooked and delicious. A short menu is a positive as it means the dishes will be prepared freshly and cooked well rather than made earlier and heated up. Compliments to the chef. (Dale I think)
