Lunch at The Crown Marnhull

Great local fare, well cooked and presented by the attentive staff. Nothing too fussy and none of that nouvelle cuisine!

Having drunk at The Crown a few weeks ago with friends we had said we should come back and try the food. So return we did. A Friday night saw many tables reserved but with a few available we got a drink from the friendly staff at the bar and were told we could choose our table in the restaurant... More

I love everything about this place, the food, the setting and the prices. I have never had a bad experience at this place. I have been to some of the functions as well and the function room is a wonderful place for a party as well.

Called in for Sunday lunch when passing by. The pub was busy but the staff managed to slot us in. We had one roast beef & a vegetarian option which was everything but the meat ( charged at a lower price) and excellent value. Homemade Yorkshire puddings were great We found the overall price good value. If we were in... More

our family stayed here last weekend and we felt overall rather let down. The staff in general seemed preoccupied on other matters and we were asked on two spectate occasions, as we were a large group to accept a smaller menu or all have the same breakfast. We accepted the smaller menu for The evening meal,thinking this would ensure a... More

This is a really nice hotel... Not great but really nice, as it does look a little tired in places. Ambiance in the bar and reception area is enhanced by having 2 open fires. Have to mention Clare... Without an i, who was fantastic, really helpful in helping me find another hotel as the Crown was fully booked on the... More

Lighter menu was lighter than expected (more small chid portion ) Pate starter on evening menu was very lacking in flavour considering it was meant to contain horseradish but was a good consistently Nice steady pub food

We decided to try the advertised "Food Around the World" night. This is a buffet (eat all you can for £10.95) of foods from all over the world. The foods on offer were from India, Morocco, Italy, France, USA, Caribbean and Turkey (the Country, not the poultry). Alongside these main dishes were accompanying side dishes. Starters were Parsnip & Parmesan... More

The atmosphere was cosy and the service was good, but for £9.50 per person we expected a good quality Sunday lunch. What can I say about the "roast" potatoes?? They were obviously reheated and needed a chainsaw to cut and muscles of steel to chewing. On complaining to the waiter we were told that the chef knew there was a... More
