Dropped in here to dine after a very long gap and could hardly recognise the place. It's been transformed into a very classy gastropub with a menu to match. Dishes are well-priced, and in fact the bill is little different from other pubs in the area that serve inferior food. The Crown caters to the rugby crowd too, with a set menu topped by coffee to go that'll see you through to the stadium. Can't think of any gastropub in the area that comes close, except perhaps the Dysart Arms.
