“Fantastic Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This was a weekend away for my Mums 60th - we decided to try the Crown and Victoria - very easy to get to even when navigating in the dark when we didn't know the area.
Very warm atmosphere. The food was fresh and extremely tasty, we were fortunate to arrive before the best of the locals who had been promised an Indian buffet so the kitchen was very busy but our individual choices from the menu were treated with equal importance. We had the ribeye steak which was perfect and the pollock with chestnut and mushroom ravioli. To finish we had an assortment of delicious sorbet, mango jelly and creme brûlée.

This is a great locals pub but if you are expecting pub food go elsewhere this is a sophisticated menu and demonstrates culinary skill. Prices are of course higher, but you get what you pay for.

I dropped a star because we were initially seated in a rather cold part of the pub and had to ask to be moved as we were shivering.

Unfortunately the creme brûlée wasn't set but overall we really enjoyed the meal and this was a minor annoyance for us as the rest of the dessert was immense.

Worth a visit! Keep up the great work guys and girls!

“Good location, average meal. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

I visited with a small group for lunch, it was not busy but I was not impressed with the service or the food, in relation to the price.
I ordered the fish, but sadly the food was just warm, and appeared to be over cooked and allowed to cool.
In summary, The Crown & Victoria will not be my first choice to visit when next out for lunch - I found it to be Average.

“Stunning food and welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We stumbled across this little gem about 2 months ago the food is stunning the welcome is exceptional, we travel the world and would sugest to the people with the poor rateings for this restaurant - you should get out more, the land lord and land lady Mark and Izzy truly care about their customers experance and about their customers' enjoyment for their food and atmosphere. There prices are very fair for the quality of food, if you think its expensive as I have read in one of the reviews may I suggest macdonalds for you or may be you would moan about that...I have been to some bad restaurants this is most deffinately not one of them! Thank you Mark and Izzy and don't change what you are doing 10/10 for you both!
Thanks - Kev & Issy

“A quality venue for food and drinks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

My son has moved into the village and so we had to try the Local.
The greeting was good the beer was excellent and the food outstanding.
The Landlord grows his own pigs, Guinea fowl and Quail and he is a fisherman all you have to do is be there on the right day when they are on the menu
