“Standards have slipped.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We visited this pub when it first opened and were very impressed as every detail had been thought about. However, on our return months later it is very different. The lamb dish was served with 4 green beans! No other veg, which for the price was disappointing. The handmade burger was very tasty but was served in a mass produce burnt white bun. The brownie was dry and the creme brulee lukewarm. Other people in our party were equally unimpressed, but they will add their own review. It seems the pub has become complacent, it now has the custom so feels it does not have to focus on the detail. Every night should be like the first.

We are sorry you feel we have let our standards slip. I can assure you our aim is to keep every night as good as the first (only busier). I am sorry your meal on this occassion was not to standard and can assure you further this was a one off. you will be also pleased to hear that following your reveiw we have decided to use only hand made burger buns.

“My Sons 2nd Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

I had my sons 2nd birthday party in The Crown's Function Room. The room was fabulous, the right size for a party.
The Crown also did the catering which was fantastic, my guests were so impressed.

Adults had Homemade Fishcakes, Salad and Homemade Chips and for the children which the adults seemed to enjoy too Homemade Chicken Nuggets served with Homemade Fries.
I have never seen Chicken Nuggets like it, they were 3 times the size of what you would purchase in a shop, they looked amazing.

Thank you to all the Staff at The Crown a lovely morning had by all.

Defiantly will book for my birthday, may even ask for Homemade Chicken Nuggets
