My husband and I booked for lunch and stated we wished to use our Gourmet Society card - website states "2 three course meals for price of one". When we arrived we were told by owner that offer was only on the main course. So we chose two main courses off the menu, one of which was fish and chips.... More

We were a mixed family group including a baby and we had booked for an early evening meal. The atmosphere in the bar was buzzing when we walked in then we were very quickly welcomed and shown to our table - special consideration had been given to the baby and we were very grateful. The food is unpretentious good pub... More

First time we have visited this pub and we received a very warm welcome from Ian and his team. They have a good range of wine and beer and we enjoyed our evening meal, will call in again.

Have had several good evenings out her, so I thought it was time to review. Music every Wednesday, and open mic on the last Wednesday of the month, and the latter was slightly jazz-orientated to start with but the mix got better as the evening went on. Been twice for the Sunday quiz which is particularly entertaining when the gregarious... More

My wife and I visited the Crown Inn for the special Valentine's Meal. It must be said that this was an excellent meal and very good value for money. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I had the steak and it was cooked perfectly, not always the case with restaurants I have found. All of the food was piping... More

Anyone local will know that the Crown has had a chequered history for food in the last 15 years.....it was brilliant, then mediocre at best...but, now, it is back with a new style and great food and ambience. The staff are really friendly and the food is fresh, the vast majority being home-cooked and at a good price. We visited... More

The Crown has been refurbished, its now a modern pub, bit retro style, all well done, lots of modern tables and chairs. The Crown only serves a roast on a Sunday, today was chicken or beef, I had the beef, the beef was overcooked for my taste, but still tender, it came with a Yorkshire pudding, good roast potatoes, and...

It was lovely. Nice wide extensive menu and helpful staff. Even had a 'Folk music' band playing which was an added bonus.

Ate there on the occasion of their Jazz night. Food was good reasonably priced and served very efficiently. The Inn was packed with people enjoying the music and we had a great evening out. The inn also has an Open Mike night which is also great

Ian and Marilyn treat us like good friends than paying customers. Truly wonderful experience. There was nothing I disliked, our room was clean and tidy and the breakfast was plentiful.
