Went for dinner after a recommendation. We weren't disappointed! The smoked salmon starter was excellent and the steak was superb! Service was really good and the drive to the pub was delightful on a summers evening. A lovely evening all round!

I regularly stay at The Crown while on business so I know it is lovely. However I have to say this visit was superb. Gorgeous room - my favourite I think. Then the meal - always good but this time it was divine. Lovely tasty steak cooked as I requested. Friendly staff happy to fulfil my requests when I wanted... More

Have stayed here twice recently and both times were brilliant! The rooms are excellent, spacious and have nice touches like fresh milk (noisy fridges mind), flapjacks and water. The Fotheringhay room has a great bathroom and ask for that if you like a good bath. The pub is thatched and serves great beer and good honest food. Fish and chips... More

Lovely food, generous portions & good service made this an excellent choice for a family lunch - our ages ranged from 6 to 90. Special packs for kids was a thoughtful touch & helped keep them amused, plus the adjacent village green was a play space.

I spent two days with my family at the Crown Inn. The accommodation was excellent and the food also. The staff were extremely helpful particularly as we had three grandchildren of 4, 3 and 18 months with us. Would certainly recommend it and would stay there again.

I visited the Crown Inn for a meal. The food was of a good standard and the service was warm and friendly. The salmon, crab and prawn cocktail starter was a bit disappointing, the salmon was the first item on the description and I couldn't taste any salmon in it which was very disappointing, and my cocktail had more prawns...

We in for lunch.Lovely weather so eat outside. Very tasty smoked duck starter with bacon, rocket and apple, truly scrummy. Followed by a fish dish, again hot and well presented, then sponge with gorgeous orange sauce. Both of us impressed.

The rooms at the Crown are excellent. This time I occupied a room with an amazing bathroom; huge and with great fittings. There were also some rather strange décor items in the bathroom: a pair of riding boots with wooden boot trees was one of them. I didn’t quite get it. The room itself was furnished with yellow wallpaper with... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are glad that you thought our rooms were comfortable and our homely touches we provided and enjoyed your evening meal, but i will look into the slow food service for you. In regards to the strange smell in the room, this was not brought to our attention when you stayed... More
