Sorry but this was such a disappointment - we were recommended by our landlady to visit this pub, and having been ignored for the first five minutes whilst a discussion went on behind the bar we resisted the temptation to walk out as the menu looked really interesting, and I ordered the plaice with samphire,but unfortunately the food was so...

We choose the Crown for our family reunion lunch. Bev was fantastic, she gave us some great choices for the lunch menu, she emailed with us, it was all so easy and well organised. There were around twelve in our group, we had one long table, all the food was beautifully presented, delicious fish, lasagna or chicken were the choices,... More

I've visited a few times for lunch and it's always been excellent. The tempura squid was amazing-best squid I've ever eaten. My friend said her Stone bass with risotto was equally amazing. Never leave this pub without trying the sticky toffee pudding because you will regret it! Lastly, the landlady's comments about her trapeze necklace is still making me giggle!

it took a bit of finding as our sat nav took us to the wrong village, aparantly this has happen to others so watch out!
