Different Cocktails!

Have been several times before. Only just found out they did cocktails some of which are very individual which is great. I do think that they need to be advertised much more. We had the cambert sharer which was lovely and had a very nice crumb crust.

I recently came to the crown for a quick lunch, and I was not impressed. We had some simple food from the bar menu; myself a “roasted red pepper, pesto sun-dried tomato and feta melt”, and my mother an “extra mature cheddar and pickle sandwich” (which the menu somewhat irritatingly calls a “sarnie”). The melt was just about passable but... More

After a really poor Sunday lunch, popped back into the Crown for lunch and thankfully they have redeemed themselves. Fab fresh fish & chips, followed by ginger rum sponge and coconut ice-cream. Back on the road to recovery.....

I have been lucky enough to have both a full meal in the restaurant and a bar snack in the bar at the Crown and both were excellent. There are some lovely touches and attention to detail such as the linen napkins. The staff are polite and attentive. I would highly recommend this venue.

This was our first visit here and we had quite high expectations given the good reviews, (higher than a standard pub) prices and great looking menu. If I could score this pub between 'average' and 'very good' I would have done but unfortunately it didn't quite hit the 'very good' mark for us. The menu gives the impression of a... More
