We had a break from the little one and came to the Crown for lunch. The starter with the Moody Baker bread was excellent. For mains I had blade steak which was amazing, and my wife had the grouse which was excellent. The veg was good overall - maybe here there could've been a slight improvement. I wasn't a big... More

I eat here whenever I can! The food is not cheap but it is good quality. The staff are all amazing - helpful, friendly and polite - I have never been anywhere that provides better service. The menu has some regular offerings but also constantly changing dishes depending on what is in season.

Staying in Mickleton, everyone recommended the Crown and they were right. Good attentive service with the right balance of friendly/keen to get it right. Good menu although naturally limited in a smaller restaurant, well cooked and good portions. Above all, no sense of being hurried despite kitchen closing at 8:30.
