Booked for a birthday lunch with some apprehension having seen mixed reviews about new owners. Lunch was delicious & staff were friendly & helpful. Desserts all made in house- looking for an excuse to return for more of the delicious chocolate fondant.

I visited with my family - we had a small baby with us. The staff were brilliant and positioned us at a table with lots of space around it. They were welcoming and attentive throughout the evening - just right. The food was absolutely wonderful. Celeriac soup with walnuts, followed by a fabulous vegetarian mushroom and spinach pithivier, with a...

Have been eating here for a few months now while we have a new kitchen fitted. Should've reviewed when we were eating when the last chap, a Michelin starred chef Mark Raffan was in the kitchen as it was brilliant. Sadly it's been taken over and is so disappointing. Warm food bought out within 10 minutes of ordering, order wrong,...

Popped in here for lunch, the buffet is definitely the way to go. It's amazing and well worth a visit especially with a hang over! You can go back as many times as you like and help yourself. The waitress was really good and looked after us.

I was staying here for a few days and it was great. Had 3 really good nights sleep, delicious breakfast and the service was spot on as the staff are really friendly. The rooms were comfortable with a lovely hot power shower. Tea and coffee making facilities with fresh milk made me really happy. Would definitely recommend this as a...

Lovely village and initial impression very good,friendly and welcoming mix of tradional feel with modern cleanliness. Really good selection of well kept local beers, no problem there. MY wife had the steak burger with fries and Salad proclaiming it to be delicious. I went for the Steak and ale pie. It wasn't a pie, it was a bowl of thick...

It's a nice village but the area immediately surrounding the Crown , particularly the car park adjacent to the cricket pitch looks a bit tatty to be honest which doesn't create a great 1st impression - some mess in the back yard and half broken down cars dotted about. Neither does the lead up to the bedrooms give a great...

Dropped in for a meal without having booked. We were made very welcome and whilst my wife really enjoyed her excellent fish and chips, my pie was only marginally better than exceptional. Really atmospheric open fire in the bar and good choice of wines and beers. Very well done and please keep it up!

The food was second to none and the chefs pedigree wad clearly evident. The service was very friendly and attentive. Waiting staff very good. The rooms were clean and warm. The bed had seen better days although it was clean with crisp linen. If the owner spends a bit on modernising the rooms, it would be 5 star to suit...
