We decided to head out for Sunday lunch. In the car we phoned ahead to see if The Crewe Arms had a spare table for two.... Yes they did 👍 The restaurant is set in a lovely village and the restaurant must date back 100's of years and with many of the original features have been retained. The menu looked... More

The Crewe Arms is a basic village pub but there is nothing basic about the prices. The only local beer available was Hook Norton Hooky which at £3.65 per pint was over the top. I chose the steak and kidney pudding from the menu and was bitterly disappointed. It was tasty enough, but £13.50 for a child sized portion was... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you thought your meal was not worth it, on the bright side you don't seem to be able to find fault with it's quality, just the portion size. Our beer pricing at £3.65 for a pint in this area is by no means expensive, in reality it's at the lower end of country... More

We were on our way home from the south west and fancied a country pub meal. This did not disappoint and we had a pleasant meal in a friendly atmosphere.

Booked and spoke to the chef as we had celiac in our party, very impressed the chef went through the menu with me and told me all the options he would have. Arrived and ordered our lunch and reminded again our friend was celiac. His lunch was presented with a lovely but sadly inedible Yorkshire pudding on top! The plate... More

Thank you for your comments about the staff team on the day, and I'm pleased they tried to resove the situation. Clearly this was an error in the kitchen, slightly stupid considering they'd gone through the menu already. If you contact me directly I'll happily discuss this further with you. I'm sorry for any problems this may have caused. More

My partner and I were original going to another pub for Sunday lunch but they were fully booked, luckily we remembered this little place tucked away in a small local village Hinton in the Hedges. We were not disappointed! Great little find couldn't believe how empty it was, lots of spare tables, it was a very inviting atmosphere and nicely... More

Having just returned from a long weekend away, neither of us felt like cooking, so we visited the Crewe Arms as I had heard good reports about the food. It was a Monday night and they had a reasonable number of diners. Service was incredibly slow and we kept having to order another round of drinks (maybe a cunning plan?).... More

Hi, we're not sure which Monday this was as we have a quiz night on the Monday that your review seems to refer to, but there's no mention of this. We have also changed a number of staff recently, including gh person I think you're alluding to. I'm pleased the food generates a positive review, sorry about the wait, I... More

Took a party of 7 there for a birthday lunch at the weekend. The Pub is in a quiet village, a little off the beaten track, but is worth going to. Very good food, good choice of beer, friendly staff. Have no hesitation recommending it.

It's years since I've visited The Crewe Arms, and it has improved considerably! They have a very good menu, the food is well presented and very tasty, and the service is great. Will certainly be going back.
