We were invited to a meal for our friends birthday and we arrived to see a lovely area set up for us all to celebrate. The menu was really varied and we were very pleased to see the 2 for £12 offer on a Friday evening. The food was delicious and enjoyed by our whole table. I would definitely... read more

Came here with friends as we knew how good it was, but since we have last came the menu seems to have got smaller, the service has got worse and the portions have got smaller aswell, the soup practically came in a bowl you would put tomato sauce in, shame because the food is still nice.

The Crown at Wormingford should be put on the suicide watch list as they seem hell bent on closure. Perhaps there is some hidden agenda as they are serving cold, frozen in the middle food, bad service (90 minute wait), lost orders, broken promises, a poor range of drinks, and an absent landlord. I could go on but in short... More

I had dinner with a group here. Prices felt quite high but the single dish I had (Crab and Lobster Tagliatelle) was good and served promptly and pleasantly. A pint of Old Speckled Hen went down well with it. Other than our group of around 16, the (remote, out in the fields, difficult to find coming from the south) pub... More

I visit the Crown about once a month as a regular meeting place with a friend. I have never had a bad meal and the staff are always friendly. The location is great as well - quiet and scenic. A lot of money has been spent on improving the building over the past couple of years which has made a... More

as a party of 4 on an empty pub we were very disappointed with the whole experience. We ordered off the 2 meals for £12 menu - you cannot argue that this is not a good deal and we were not expecting miracles for this price however once we had placed our order we waited...and waited....and about 25 minutes after...

It's become our go to pub. The inside is comfortable and rustic and the food is great, and the service is always excellent. Plan... More

We visited the Crown for lunch after it was recommended by a friend! We live locally and heard it was now owned but the same people who own the Lemon Tree in Colchester which has had a good reputation in the past. We dined on a Friday lunchtime and were surprised that the restaurant was virtually empty! We ordered our... More
