“enough for two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

we visited the hand and crown Friday night, we had to book at least 2 weeks before .as it gets very busy.this was our first visit but our friends had been before. The menu was extensive and there were specials as well. I had fish and could not believe the size of the portions . my husband and I could of shared this meal. it was fantastic food and the service was spot on. too much waste though and you definitely could not eat three courses . Nice to see the manager around keeping check on things. having run a pub ourselves you notice the details. The pub is clean and staff very polite.def would go again.

“Super food again at the 'Hand and Crown'”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

I met a friend at this pub for a catch up and supper. It was a good choice. The food was lovely and the service was fine. We had a good evening and it was very busy for a Tuesday night which says a lot!

“Can't wait to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I was introduced to this pub by a friend. We had a truly wonderful meal, so I couldn't wait to take my family there. I took them for lunch as children aren't welcomed at night. Once again, the food was great, nice staff, clued up about the food they serve. I've gone back with another group of friends, and been impressed all over again. The food is wonderful, freshly prepared and the portions are massive. It's worth the journey to get there, just make sure you book.
