“Perfection on our doorstep!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We came as family to celebrate my father's new job. I'd never been before, despite living locally and now I wish I had! What an absolute gem. To start with the staff are brilliant. We had my 10 month old son with us. A highchair was brought over right way and we were given time to get him settled in before the waitress came for our orders. There was no problem when I asked for some water for his sippy cup. Accommodating, friendly and sincere is how I'd describe them!
The food came promptly and was absolutely delicious. We ate far more than we needed to but it was all just so lovely, how could we not?! We've eaten in a number of fantastic places and this is on a par with the best. Good honest pub food, excellent quality and perfect portions.
Need I say more? If you're considering a trip to The Crown, don't delay!

“Beautiful food served promptly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

I'd read reviews of the restaurant/pub and decided to book with a group of friends for Sunday lunch. Diners with me had cheeseburger, pie, scampi, roast beef and I had chicken supreme. Everyone loved their choices. For puddings, there was a mixture of choices but I especially recommend the 2 mini crepes with sliced (uncooked) banana, vanilla icecream and caramel sauce. It was divine!
