We arrived at the property on a Monday at 1:15pm hoping for an early check-in (normally 2pm) but the whole place was shut! A member of staff arrived to 'do the lines' at 1:15pm and informed us that there is no food on Mondays so they do not open until 3pm. He did, however, advise us where we could get... More

Went for Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children and the friendly staff made us very welcome. The food was superb and plenty of it. We will definitely be going again.

This place has gone rapidly downhill since Tim & Germaine left in March 2016. Gone are the linen tablecloths and napkins to reveal tatty tables. Plastic sauce bottles and wrapped cutlery on table instead of being laid out or requested. Roast Sunday Lunch was a disappointment with soggy Yorkshire Pudding soaked with gravy. It used to be so good and... More

We have just returned after a one night stay at The Crown Inn. The bed room was lovely and clean and a very comfy bed. We both had a lovely breakfast and will stay again. The owner and staff were very helpful and made the stay enjoyable

A new manager has recently taken over this Inn and it has a friendly feel. Our room was fairly small, but well equipped; some improvements were required in the bathroom, but nothing serious. We did not have a very peaceful night, as they had a successful disco that did not finish until after 12.30 and then the traffic started before... More

My friends and I have had some excellent meals here in the past, but there has been a recent change of landlord, which we didn't realise until we visited a few weeks ago. The Crown Inn is now a sports pub, with several large screens around the pub, including in the restaurant. The menu has also changed. The new landlord... More

Tim and Germaine were extremely welcoming and helpful - and staff were friendly. The food (breakfasts and evening meal) was first class; as was the Abbot bitter. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Everywhere was neat and clean.

We used to be regulars of the Crown back in the days when it was primarily known as a pub. It still has a friendly pub feel to it, but there is more emphasis on good quality food these days. We were very impressed with the quality of the meals and the service was superb. Staff were extremely friendly and... More

Family visit for a pre-Christmas get together. We were quite a large group so there was a little bit of a wait for the food to arrive but all the food was very good, and those of us who had the Fish & Chips thought they were exceptional.

Booked in for Sunday lunch with the family, food was lovely and freshly cooked and the prices are very reasonable. We have a teenager who was apparently starving so bought an adult size roast meal, should have opted for the kids size as the portion sizes are generous, the puddings are lovely to. It's a lovely atmosphere nice and relaxed... More
