Went into the crown for tea, child free for the night, no clean half pint glasses, didn't feel very ladylike drinking out of a pint glass!! Ordered Food which was nice but ruined by the loud family on one side arguing with staff about the food and the two greyhounds barking in my right ear, observed a waitress going over... More

Great pub, very friendly service, food was good, although there was no choice for a Sunday roast, the menu had a good selection of light bites and mains with a nice selection of deserts. Very pleasant reprieve after Pokemon hunting.

I went to the crown yesterday for lunch with my daughter and granddaughter. Our lunch was lovely, my granddaughter had a children's meal which was great value at only £1. The lady who waited on us (she wasn't in uniform so would think she was a manager) was amazing with Milly, she even took her for a walk around the... More

We're very lucky to have this wonderful pub in our area. We are made to feel very welcome by all the staff and they always go the extra mile to help, especially now mum is in a wheelchair. Food and drink is very reasonably priced and we have never had any complaints with what we've ordered, Keep up the good... More

I went with my partner and 3 children, and I appreciate it was a bank holiday monday but we had to wait an hour and 20 mins for our meals, even though it was not that busy. And when it arrived it was all stone cold. The kids pizzas were mini microwaved ones, and the kids burger was just burnt... More

Serves staple gastro pub food and is very much a restaurant until about 9.00pm and then turns into a regular pub. Unfortunately when we visit it always appears to be severely understaffed during the food part of the evening with dirty dishes stacked up on the bar for lack of someone to take them away and not enough staff processing...

Management rude and have no customer service even after spending over £100. feel sorry for the staff as they get the runt of it due to lack of management. Food had no taste and tables has sticky surfaces and floor was covered in food! would not recommend!
