I'm guessing this is one of Wadsworth Brewery's flagship pubs. The meal we had was super, the roast chicken (from the local butchers) was simply delicious. The bar man (who also served us the food) was friendly and really helpful. The whole night out here was great, and we only picked it because of the other trip advisor reviews..... thanks... More

We were recommended the Crown by Geoff from The White Bear Inn and we were so glad we chose it. The young gentleman Robbie was a total delight so well mannered and helpful. We had some sharing platters of crab cakes and smoked trout pate between us which were delicious and of good size. I then had the beer battered... More

It was a quiet evening, but we got a great welcome by the only member of front of house staff on that evening (Robbie). He was a great host and took great care of us all evening.

Good choice of food on the menu. The chicken warm salad was good. The liver of the lamb's liver was good, but unfortunately the mash was reconstituted - one asks why! We had one excellent waitress and one who was a little disinterested, it does make a difference.

We had lunch at The Crown today on the spur of the moment. Devizes was buzzing due to it being market day and the pub was well patronised. There is no pretension in the menu. It is tasty, well cooked food which is served in generous portions. Everything we had was perfectly cooked. Chips were crisp and golden outside and... More

Having visited Devizes on a few occasions recently, it is true to say that I have been somewhat underwhelmed by the quality of the eating establishments on offer, most of which have been very average. However the recently refurbished Crown stands apart from the rest, and we enjoyed a good meal in comfortable surroundings at a realistic price. We were... More
