My husband and 2 young boys had dinner here last Sunday eve. Food was amazing service was excellent. Kids menu choice was varied with plenty of options and you could tell the food was homemade. It arrived hot. It's a bit pricier than say a hungry horse but I believe you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

Staying with friends nearby who were having their kitchen refurbished so we all booked in for an evening meal on a Tuesday night - it was busy but that certainly didn't detract from excellent service from the staff. There was a varied choice of seasonal food which came promptly. All the food was very nicely presented and the staff were... More

Since the refurbishment the whole place has lifted and the staff are all very happy and helpful. Our party of four could not fault the menu. Starters were 2 Celeriac Soups, one rope... More

Staying at Champneys, we decided to walk to the pub for dinner. The food was fantastic! Not only was it high quality but they were good portions. Their own mustard was amazing. However the highlight was the quality of service by all the staff. We returned on our second night because we had been so impressed and the standard was... More

We often eat at the Crown, the atmosphere is always lovely and nothing's too much trouble for the staff. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the Valentines menu last week. The pigeon starter was perfectly cooked, and I loved the sharing dishes inbetween especially the champagne sorbet. We both enjoyed the quail main course and loved the theatrical smoke... More
