Lovely location and cosy bar and restaurant . The menu had a good selection and food was good, plenty of choice for breakfast. Our room was lovely modern, with a large bathroom, but was located in the car park behind the inn as were a number of others - we thought it would be an old world one in the... More

Ate here once before and had to come back. Good mix of locals and visitors. Everyone is polite and there is good customer service. Time is taken to get everything right. Wide menu or daily reasonably priced specials. Sit in the bar with roaring fire or in the restaurant.

Stopped here mid-week whilst away on business. This is a gorgeous old country pub in a sleepy village just off the main drag. The room was tastefully decorated with some really nice touches, such as fresh milk, filter coffee and a comprehensive choice of teas. Wi-Fi was reasonably good on the evening but poor in the morning. I stopped on... More

The first pleasure was seeing what a lovely village Elton is and the thatched roof of the pub makes The Crown so pretty. Next delight were the lovely rooms we were shown to, so beautifully decorated, finally the food was absolutely... More

We had an excellent pub lunch at the Crown. The ploughman's lunches are absolutely excellent. Will definitely be going back. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This pub is very traditional and has a lot of character.
