“Fabulous friendly staff nice carvery excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

After visiting barrow in furniss and spending our last few hours on Walney beach me and my 7 year old decide to stop at the crown for lunch before facing the three hr dive home.
The carvery was turkey beef gammon turkey ham pie or vegetarian options. I chose the pie my son had turkey both were slightly smaller plates costing around 3.60 I think . Food was lovely had delicious cranberry gravy loads of veg and yorkshire puds.
Son had bottomless ice cream( one and he was full)
To top off our lovely meal we were told by staff that Prince William and Kate were about to pass on their way to Airport after visiting Barrow in furniss. We took 10 steps outside to have william pass by waving and smiling!

“Did not meet expectations!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

As we were visiting Barrow I checked out Tripadvisor for a good place to eat with my family. The Crown had rave reviews so we decided to try it. It did not meet my expectations from other people's reviews of the place. The food was OK but was not freshly prepared, I ordered Whitby haddock and chips (can't go wrong there, i thought), the fish was obviously a frozen portion and the chips were chips, nothing special. Portion size was small and I was left still hungry when I had finished. When I go out to eat I expect to get something slightly better than if I stayed at home and cooked, this wasn't any better. The Crown is fine for a standard meal but don't expect anything special.
