An unexpected Friday business lunch opportunity led to a recommendation to this pub which I pass every day and have never been in. Lovely atmosphere inside - no distracting muzak!. Sitting space in the old pub (of "Tess of the Duberville's" fame) and also in a very sympathetically done extension. Prompt and friendly service and a large menu of standard... More

We called in on the off chance on Sunday evening, after a disappointing visit to the other village pub. The roast and atmosphere were great.The service was very attentive and the roast beef was very well priced and there was loads of it!. I only wished we had found the pub sooner, and not on our last night. Highly recommended.

This is a local pub to us - walking distance and in a straight line!! Decided to spoil ourselves and go for a meal having not tried it since another change in landlord. Was not disappointed - very good food - tasty and plenty of it, good friendly service and reasonable price. Will return again when we have chance.

Thanks to all at the Crown. Visited last Sunday evening with friends. Service, food quality and beer selection was very good for the cost.

Good food although perhaps unusual choice of veggies on some dishes eg cabbage with sea bass fillet? Excellent service - a lovely local pub. Oh and the Sunday carvery was great when we visited a few weeks ago.
