We still like the Old Crown - the food is pretty good and served in generous portions, but it seems a little less good that it was. Most of the staff are present and they cope with the large numbers often present, but the pub doesn't feel as welcoming and some of the staff are less friendly and helpful. We'll... More

We booked for Sunday lunch and wasn't disappointed. There was a great selection of roasts. The food was great and the staff were very attentive and pleasant. Would definitely recommend.

This place never fails to tickle the taste buds. The skate wing was cooked to perfection & tasted superb. Fellow diners had the salmon & scallops, gammon steak & chicken; everything was enjoyed. The desserts are massive & are a delight to look at as well taste! I like the way they are prepared to juggle items on the menu... More

A friends Birthday celebration, food and service was excellent with an extensive menu. The portions were quite large but it was reasonably priced.

Even on a busy Sunday lunchtime, the food and service at The Old Crown was as excellent as ever. Booking is essential.

We couldn't book before three but our table was available upon our slightly early arrival. We all went straight into roast meals - beef and lamb were served well with excellent vegetables on the side. Little room for desserts.

I was a guest at a large dinner party. The seating was with large tables and with smaller ones, giving the choice to friends groups, and there was enough room to move around tables to chat with everyone at the end of the meal. The staff was pleasant and attentive, and did a great job of serving everyone without errors.... More

Really nice food for a small team xmas do. A cut above the traditional xmas offerings and was absolutely delicious. Will definitely book for here next year. My only issue is it's a bit white and bright - so would probably give it 4.5

Decent pub food at reasonable price and good service from a couple of lads who looked after us well. Main complaint is quite how bright it is in there...maybe change the 100 watt bulbs or get a dimmer switch. Felt slightly like being in my Grandma's living room. It was a very wet and cold Thursday night so maybe better... More
