We went for Sunday lunch and sat outside in the glorious sunshine. The staff were incredibly friendly and very attentive, and the food was fantastic! Overall a lovely little village pub and for sure we'll go back again. Highly recommended..

This little "Gem" in Little Walden takes some beating. The friendly host and staff make this one of our favourite places to eat. The delicious food, in generous portions makes this the ideal place to impress your friends and family. The menu consists of many favourite dishes to choose from.

Located above a wonderful tradition pub (see separate review), The Crown Inn is an unpretentious, clean and comfortable place to stay. We reserved two of their three rooms for five nights and couldn't have been happier. The rooms were private, with en suite bathrooms, affordably priced, with comfortable beds and nice amenities (hair dryer, mini shampoos, extra blankets). The owners... More

We stayed for two nights, and had a fantastic time. There was a slight mix up with the booking, which was luckily rectified before we arrived. Sue and her husband Steve are very warm and welcoming, Sue went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. A Group of six of us ate in their restaurant... More

A traditional country Pub with fairly priced good quality home cooked food of good portions. We went on a Wednesday night and enjoyed their weekly jazz session which created a great atmosphere in the busy pub. A great selection of Adnams ales and lager which was a treat, will certainly be back again.

I was taking part in a B&B television reality TV programme, and was put up at The Crown Inn between reviewing competitors' hotels. Well I thought it beat the lot! It is privately run, the rooms and food are of the highest quality, and the service first rate. When I found out all of this cost less than £100 for... More

We were looking for a family get together that we could regularly use and The Crown sounded ideal for our weekend get togethers. We wanted an outside play area for our granddaughter and firstly the play area was just tables and we were greeted by three barking dogs. Very unwelcoming, we did not stay and will not return.

We stayed at the crown after seeing a deal on Groupon. We weren't expecting too much as we only paid £70 per couple which included bed and breakfast, afternoon tea and a £10 voucher off the evening meal! Afternoon tea was delicious, great value for money! They kept topping up the tea. Evening meal was really good, we all had... More

An absolute Gem of a place, lovely accommodation, fantastic food, excellent beer and above all amazing friendly staff and locals. Character full bar area with an open fire is great for meeting friends old and new, quieter restaurant area for more intimate conversations and very pleasant outdoor patio area. Pretty much ticks all the boxes. Go visit and make some... More

This may not be the Hilton, but that's not what you're looking for if you stay in a place like this - hugely friendly service, clean and tidy rooms and bathroom, and all at an excellent price in a beautiful part of the world. The pub itself is very traditional - and everything about our stay reflected that, in a... More
