Earlier this week we needed to make ourselves scarce whilst the estate agent showed potential purchasers around our property - always a good opportunity for an impromptu lunch. My wife had suggested The Crown at Old Basing as she had experienced an excellent group Christmas lunch here in 2013. We had not booked a table and although the place was... More

I had lunch here and my first impression on walking in was how inviting and friendly the staff were - They couldn't help us enough! The food was hot, fresh and obviously homemade and of course delicious. Making plans to visit again......and again!

Great food, good atmosphere, very attentive staff, wonderful evening had. A bit pricey but we'll worth it. We felt very well looked after.

Our third visit here and, again, was successful in pleasing all members of our party of four. The Sunday lunch menu is sensibly short but should meet most requirements; pricing is fair and the service from the team was beyond reproach.

Disappointed in surrounding and service, were not asked how everything was, left for long periods,seated in a drab cold 'snug' by men's toilet , disinterested waitress. Will not be going back, Barton Mill far superior.

Came here from Trip Advisor recommendations. Was not disappointed. Good range of food from both menus. We sat outside as it was a nice day and there was a good atmosphere in the garden. Would certainly return if I was in the area.

Went here for Sunday lunch today, and as a late celebration of my 40th birthday. There were 4 of us plus my 3 year old daughter and we were all catered for brilliantly. The staff were warm and welcoming, the menu was great and the food was superb! Would definitely recommend!
