Valentines evening - they had made a real effort with balloons & candles & a set menu for 2 for 30 pounds. In fact we both fancied more expensive dishes and enjoyed those. Imagine our surprise when they included the dishes in the set menu saving us money and then presented my wife with a red rose and a bottle... More

We recently ate here on two evenings whilst staying at the fabulous B&B next door. It is very much a local pub (500 years old) with lots of character, cask ales and of course, in Herefordshire, local cider. We found the staff friendly and helpful, and though clearly a 'local' pub we didn't find the unfriendliness sometimes found from 'regulars'... More

The pub is friendly and authentic. We have had a number of meals in the restaurant and the last time we went it was really busy. However, we were provided with mini starters and dessert, because of the wait, without us asking or complaining so not only is the food excellent but the service and customer care is too.

The Indian meal we had at the The Crown was tasty. Service was good, friendly and it was nice to eat at a table with a starched linen tablecloth. Drinks were brought in from the bar to the restaurant area by wait staff.

Popped in for a quick drink as we were staying locally. Looked quaint from the outside. However, as a non indian food fan - the smell was a bit over powering in the inside bar area. Pub is very pocky but does have a pool table and dart table. Sadly to even pop outside to enjoy your drink, you have... More
