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,...

Reasonably priced meals with a great taste! The sausages and mash are to die for and they have a wide selection of delicious desserts to follow. Extremely quick and friendly service.

My wife and I are local and visited for a midweek meal, not having been for a while. The welcome is always friendly, the food good and price about average. The restaurant side does seem a little sparse and I'd have like to have seen cleaner tables, but it is what it is and I would return without hesitation.

Hi, points taken on board. We run the restaurant between myself and my husband midweek and have to cook, washup, serve and run the bar. This can often leave delays in clearing tables. We will always endeavour to do our best though. Thank you for dining with us. Fiona & Mark More

We were a muddy group of 12 walkers, and we were welcomed in for a fantastic Sunday lunch at the Crown. Tasty meats with all the trimmings. The stuffing and yorkshire puds were particular highlights. With surprisingly good puddings to finish. And good value too. Highly recommended.
