Have been to the Crown many times and always loved it but wasnt sure about going back after the comments I had read about the refurbishment and the poor service and average food. I shouldnt have worried. The updated inside is now lighter and has more space. I would rate the food 8 out of 10. The Chicken, Beefburger and Fish and Chips were all good (portion of french fries was small considering it was an extra £2.50 - I counted 15 fries). Deserts were very good, especially the Chocolate Fondant which was perfectly cooked. Service was good (we had waitress who had just started). Ale was excellent. The seating outside has all been updated and extended - it will be great once the weather gets better. I will be going back
