Came back here in December to celebrate my Mother's birthday. It had been along time since we had been. We had a lovely evening. We came again last evening. We are now in February 2017 with my husband Mother and friend. We did enjoy ourselves but not as good as usual. Am afraid The chicken was tough which my Mother... More

I wanted to take my wife out for our anniversary but had left it all a bit late and thought it was about time we tried the local restaurant for an evening meal. So booked for a meal of two. My wife and I were not disappointed throughout the night. Of the 3 members of staff we saw I can... More

We had booked the Crown as a group of over 40 (in number, not years) and the choices of menu catered for all tastes. The pre-dinner drinks service was fine as was the dinner service. Everyone got their meals in a timely manner and the additional drinks during dinner came as requested. A comprehensively good performance from an unexpectedly located... More

It is a shame that this little pub has decided it doesn't need people to drink the, rather well kept, beers it offers. It seems to only want people who sit at tables and eat meals. I suggest to changes its name and calls itself a restaurant.

It has been about three years since we have been here, we came as a family and bought my Mother for her birthday. We really enjoyed it. Food was good. All the staff sang happy birthday to my Mother which she loved. All so friendly. We shall not leave it so long next time.

I've never had a bad time here, I must've been visiting for 5 years just-about now. I've seen The Crown really become one of the best in the area, the menu is always changing and brings traditional dishes to the table with modern twists. I've had Kate as my server on most occasions and her and the other staff will... More

The Crown is a superior restaurant in quality, variety and standard of service. Despite the obvious attention to detail, they maintain very respectable prices and always have an interesting menu. The Chef's specials never disappoint and show imagination and sophistication. The garden in the rear is lovely and while modest, can accommodate groups. Highly recommended.

Really good food and generous portions, really traditional gastro food but made freshly to order. The steak and ale pie was amazing, mash was fab, my husband had the trio of sausages which he said was the best he had eaten. Been back now three times, the fish and chips are the best anywhere, also they do take away fish... More
