However my partner and i went for a carvery today, and by the time she had pulled roughly 8-9 hairs of... More

Decided to have a roast because of the good reviews. Was really disappointed to be put down the bottom end of a Skittle Alley where the decor was stacked chairs and tables and a few empty dining tables. We had expected it to liven up but spent most of the time alone until another family arrived two tables up. The... More

We visited on Sunday, booking in advance after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. We were able to take our dogs too, but seated in the bar area. Not a problem. The carvery was superb, neither of us could fault anything on our plates. The vegetables were home cooked, varied and plenty of choice, 8 in total! The meats were perfect... More

I have visited The Crown on numerous occasions while holidaying in Somerset. So when we went on holiday in early October, our first port of call was The Crown. As usual, I had the steak, which was cooked to my specification. On the Sunday, we had the carvery, which is the best I've ever had. On our last day in... More

I usually trust Tipadvisor so was rather shocked when we arrived at this place. Already feeling slightly unsure, I used the ladies lavatories whilst my husband ordered drinks at the bar passing 'the carvery' in a back room on route. This was even dirtier and more disgusting than my first impressions of the building with muddles and filthy debris everywhere.... More

My Partner and I visited the Crown back in March 2014. We had such a wonderful visit and always regard our dining experience here to be in our Top five, our main reasons are due to how welcoming everyone is and how fantastic the food really is.
