“guest at hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

The restaurant was just part of the bar so workmen staying there were adjacent. The food came quickly but was a huge plateful-too much at 9:30 at night. The meat in the pie was not wonderful but the rest was nice. it was reasonably priced. The waiter was very attentive. The real ale was beautiful.

“DEAR,DEAR....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Restaurant really needs a spruce up, wallpaper hanging off ceiling, needs updating badly.Food massive in quantity, poor in quality,eg. garlic mushroom starters were about 20 deepfried mushrooms in a breakfast bowl! Could do with some lessons in quality over quantity, and certainly in presentation. Carvery veg were cold, meat hanging around far too long, yorkshire puds to sole your shoes with. Lambshank with mustard mash sounded good, lambshank floating in gravy and liquid mush.......best avoided I think until manager shakes it up...needs to show that main menu not available on sunday on website, carvery and bar meals only.All in all, pretty shabby, needed a good deep clean and refurb.

“Awful service, made us bit want to order”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Went here for a lunch over the Easter break. The bar maid was so rude and unfriendly that having ordered some food we retracted the order as the lady behind the bar gave off such negative energy. So we left.

“Not the best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We celebrated three family occasions in one recently at the Crown in Brackley. We were a large party y so understand that the staff would be under pressure, however not only were they under pressure they did not really understand what we were saying. The food turned up in dribs and drabs, my father's was the wrong meal completely. I did not receive any chips with my meal. The mixed grills were good value and okay but bore little resemblance to what was described on the menu. There were two staff handling the Restaurant, the bar and the bar meals. We almost expected them to be doing the cooking as well. In short it was a bit too much like Fawlty Towers for me. We shall not visit again.
