Nice pub if you are going out for some drinks. I like their chandeliers. Did not eat here but the menu looked okay but definitely come here for booze

We have visited the Crown on a number of occasions and it never disappoints – it is consistently welcoming, has a great atmosphere, and serves excellent food and drink. There are several pubs close by but this is the stand-out for us. Definitely recommended!!

I have eaten here many times but never again. After eating his meal a man put his plate on the floor for his St Bernard dog to lick it clean. At least two members of staff saw this but made no comment. Disgusting.More

Great place to have a Sunday Roast. Nice atmosphere, clean, cozy, and rustic. Staff are very friendly and service was fast. Food was very good as well! This is a hidden gem of the main roads but much better quality than most on upper street....More

Nice pub but when you go to pay by card they ask you to put a tip in which is unusual for pub when you have to keep going to bar even when there are lots of you - not bad but rather expensive

A grade II listed Victorian pub with original features and welcoming atmosphere. Situated on a stunning leafy street in Islingon. Dine al fresco on a summer's evening on our gorgeous patio or cuddle up with your dog next to our open fire in the colder months. With an ever changing menu (including both vegetarian and vegan options) and extensive wine list you will be spoilt for choice. We look forward to welcoming you.
