We are visiting from US and this is exactly what we were looking for, an English Pub in an old building. It was cozy and nice. The food was amazing!

3 of us went on a Wednesday evening There's parking out the front and round the side/back - it's narrow roads around here so watch out First glance was slightly disappointed by the general impression - I guess it's quite quaint and has a country pub feel, just not to my taste They were a bit busy but were friendly...

We dropped in without a reservation early on a Friday evening for a quick dinner. After a friendly welcome by staff and locals at the bar a table was found despite many bookings. The food menu is limited, but offers a decent choice of options. Both the lamb and the belly of pork dish were well flavoured, but especially the... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this pub so much so we have booked their New Year's Eve Dinner and party. So much on my plate at lunch a doggie bag of substantial size was required. Dog friendly and lovely autumn fires makes this a wonderful place to eat and relax.

As titled this was our second visit to the Crown, our first visit was in July. My wife and I were visiting my daughter who lives in Basingstoke and she spoke very highly of the place and it's food so booked us three in. Both times we had a really good meal could'nt fault it, but when you get the... More

Popped in for a spontaneous meal after a long drive. Despite being busy, they managed to squeeze us in for a fish and chip supper. Crispy beer batter and chunky flakey fish with the best mushy peas I have ever had. Thank you very much. We shall be back soon.

Not good news. I gave The Crown an excellent review not so long ago. This one is the opposite. Main problem was the waiting---2.5 hours for a 2 course lunch !! One looses appetite if there is a huge gap between the starter & the main course. Only 2 couples when we arrived & not many more subsequently--they even suggested... More

Went for Sunday lunch which was £14 each and well worth it. Massive Yorkshires and plenty on the plate. Warm and toasty room by the fire. We hadn't booked but they found a table for the two of us though it did look quite popular and busy. Had to ask for mint sauce with the lamb which seemed a little... More
