We arrived without reservations for Sunday lunch. It was busy but tables were rearranged for us (part of 6) and we were served in a friendly and efficient manner. Sunday roast was excellent. Great value and atmosphere. Will go here again.

Having spent New Year's eve here and dined on the fantastic bands playing and the free food, I have to say it was a really great night. A recommended stopping place for beer too on any evening. The pub is very atmospheric as it has been there since at least the mid-1500s, real ale and food cooked in-house. The real... More

The roast beef was overcooked and dry. Turkey was dry and there was a piece of plastic film in the gravy. The lamb dish had a long dark hair. The only redeeming meal was the steak and ale pudding. Yorkshire puddings were heavy and stodgy. They did not charge us for 2 dishes. The children's dishes were lukewarm . We... More

My boyfriend and I ate here a couple of Friday's ago. I ate steak and ale pudding with the most gorgeously rich gravy, very well made mashed potato, and lots of veggies!! It was a large portion, and I struggled to eat it all. I can not give it anything less that 5/5! friendly staff; We'll definitely return again next... More

The pub is on the High Street and has a simple and dignified interior, where the wooden beams and joists of the ceiling have become decorative elements and greatly contribute to the authenticity of a "bygone times" ambience. Familiarity is further enhanced by the usual indisciplined atmosphere of a relaxed Sunday lunch, locals out with their children, elderly couples, groups... More

Visited for dinner with 2 elderly relatives. Atmosphere was a bit lacking as no one else in but service pleasant and attentive. Food was good. I had the steak which was cooked rare to order and they had the vegetarian Wellington which they both agreed was fine. House red was good and value at £14.50. Altogether pretty good as long... More

3 of us called in for lunch on a Monday, they only had 2 staff and were run off their feet. It was a long wait but the food was very good when it arrived.

This is our second trip - for a Sunday Carvery - to this eatery. The meat was delicious and the decor amplifies the quaint environment. Please bear in mind that it's always best to book in advance as it gets very busy at times.

The crown is in a beautiful position overlooking the duck pond. We are very lucky to have it as our local pub. The food is excellent and the steak, my favourite, is delicious served with the best pepper sauce I have ever tasted. They have an exciting new menu and the sharing plates are really tasty. The menu has a... More

We visited the Crown on Saturday 21st June just to see what it was like. We found the landlady to be very friendly and helpful, when I said I would have liked the tuna steak but did not like the chilli sauce, this proved to be no problem at all and I was offered a cream and white wine sauce,...
