Living in Old Basing we regularly pop in to The Crown and always have fantastic food there. We recently booked a to have a meal with friends at Christmas. We chose from a wonderful selection of food on their special Christmas menu. This was not your standard Pub Christmas menu with the usual Turkey, Salmon, or Mushroom option but an... More

Having eaten here recently in the evening, decided to take along for Sunday lunch, and certainly was not disappointedl! Service was excellent, and haven't had such a tasty roast in ages. The meat (beef) melted in the mouth. The vegetables were cooked to perfection, and the roast potatoes were even better than mother makes, and that's saying something! Even the... More

Shame however ordered a starter sharing platter of Tamworth cheese, boy that... More

First visit recently to the Crown, for lunch. Service was excellent as was the food. Lovely little touches with bread and olive oil, and finishing with home made fudge. Only complaint was the low ceiling which increased the noise level, but did not spoil the experience.

Christmas dinner. Unanimously declared excellent by a quite discerning group of 14. We enjoy the superbly kept Ales there regularly, but this good dining experience will no doubt inspire us to eat at The Crown more often. Thanks !

We were in Basingstoke and needed somewhere to eat late on a Saturday night. Having looked at the reviews I gave the Crown a call. Their restaurant was fully booked but they were happy to lay up a table for our family of five adults in the snug with a half hour's warning. We arrived and the welcome was wonderful... More

Another wonderful meal, as always. I can't believe that this place has got a couple of poor reviews ... We must have eaten here 30+ times over the last three years or so & I have yet to have a bad dish. Today I went for the classic fish & chips & homemade tartare sauce & 'posh' mushy peas (yum...

I was really looking forward to visiting the Crown for a meal as everyone said how good it was. All I can say is never again! The place was almost empty at 8pm on the Friday before Christmas, had no atmosphere and the staff were less than welcoming! We sat at our table, space was limited and quite uncomfy. The... More

The Crown at Old Basing is from the outside a very pleasant looking, character charming pub set in a lovely village in North Hampshire. The inside in places does make it feel like a country pub, but in areas you do get the feeling that it’s time to update. By that I mean the main restaurant area which gives the... More

Dear Darr3n Thank you for taking the time to post a review on TA. I am very disappointed to hear your comments concerning both the food and the décor of the restaurant. As a team since opening we have put a lot of work and re investment into both the food offering and the fixtures and fittings of the building.... More
