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.

We are not local but popped in here to see if we could get a quick bite to eat before going to a meeting at the village memorial hall. The Crown offers an extremely warm welcome from the landlord & landlady, an even warmer log fire & a varied menu. As we were fairly pressed for time, I opted for... More

Four of us went for Sunday Lunch at the Crown in Otford and as always, truly excellent. My roast beef had so much flavour, vegetables plentiful and cooked just right and my mash potato was to die for. My other half always has the large lamb as is never disappointed, he says the best lamb he has ever tasted. The... More

After a long walk on a sunday afternoon with my wife and daughter, we all needed refreshing so we visited this establishment over the dirtier looking pub on the corner. As we walked in we were hit with a glorious aroma of sunday roast. We made our way into the bar area which had recently been painted and refurbished.I was... More

My suspicions were aroused when we could walk straight in without a reservation on a lovely sunny Sunday at 2.40 pm. Where we sat the place was quite empty. Suspicion number two was the sticky dirty table and surroundings. Food arrived fairly quickly and the Roast beef was done to death and probably just warmed up. The potatoes had suffered... More

Am sorry your experience what not what you had expected. We regularly serve around 60-70 covers on a normal Sunday but this is always less at the begining of the school holidays and if it is really hot. We never re-heat meats, they are cooked on the day and placed in a baine marie tobe carved to order. All our... More

This old, atmospheric pub is successful because it sticks to a simple formula few other hostelries manage to grasp ... good food, good beer, good staff ... and good prices. My old mate and I lunch at the Crown regularly, and have never yet been disappointed. The Friday fish menu is something to be savoured. This week we both had... More
