We have had several meals here. It is a nice quaint village pub and the food is very nice. I find the menu a bit boring if you go too often and I tend to have the same thing every time. Perhaps a nice pork dish in a creamy white wine sauce, lovely!!!! Having said that it is fine if... More

Not particularly welcoming. Asked twice if we had booked or were guests and then said they could fit us in. Food was very good although a bit on the pricey side. Nice atmosphere. No musak, kids or dogs - a blessing. Chairs hard but there are comfy ones in the lounge area. Nice toilets.

Very nice steak house and the fish special was tasty too .Visited with my 84 year old and she enjoyed it too . A bit pricey if you have side orders as steak only comes with one side but it was nicely served and well presented .

This is the first time that we have been to this country pub. The service was very good, the food was delicious, we have been trying to find a good place to eat we don't have to look any further, many thanks to all at the Crown inn.

Tried to book a table of 12 for a family birthday. Told very bluntly that I couldn't book more than 8 people on a Friday or Saturday night. Rude and unhelpful. They've lost a regular visitor.

Visited the Crown, as I do quite frequently. We like the atmosphere, friendliness and attitude of the staff in particular the manager. This time we took relatives who were visiting the area. Food was very good as always. However this was spoilt by the service received, there was a certain lack of energy from the person who served us, she... More

I chose The Crown Inn to meet up for lunch with my friends who live in the area because I was staying near Stamford in Lincolnshire this particular week and it was convenient for me to drive to. It also had good reviews in TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The menu was not overcrowded with lots of dishes but concentrated... More
