I had hunters chicken and the chicken was really overlooked and inedible. I should have sent it back but decided to persevere. I told the waitress and... More

Always worth a visit to the crown. Traditional pub with Great ales, and excellent pub grub at low prices. The mixed grill is a must if you're a meat lover. I would be happy to recommend to anyone as a good location. You won't get haute cuisine but you will get honest food at a great price.

Popped in for some dinner and a drink and what a gem of a pub we found. Warm welcome from friendly staff, great home cooked food, well looked after beer. You couldn't wish to find a better place to enjoy a drink and some food. Really hope to go back one day soon.

Rooms are basic and soundproofing as you would expect in a very old building. Basic lodgings, but fairly priced, with a warm welcome. Nice old-fashioned bar area downstairs, which seems to have good support from locals. Car park in the back.

I come here most weekends I am off for Sunday dinner and when they hold special events. The food is nice and the beer is cold, very homely country pub. My 5 year old loves coming for dinner and Angie always has a natter with him. You feel very comfortable and never feel rushed to eat your dinner no matter... More
