Had a lovely lunch with a couple of pints here today. Beer kept well and food good value and tasty. But you need to be aware this is cash only,no cards accepted. Would happily eat there again.

Nice traditional pub, good food and a friendly landlord. Everyone using the over-crowded Wetherspoons and over priced hotel bars locally are missing a treat!

Would visit this place much more but have never met such a grumpy landlord. Felt as though I was doing him a favour, whilst being nuisance being there. Also short changed after buying a round of drinks and made to feel it was my fault.

Lovely home cooked food - generous portions. Views upstairs lovely. Yes, landlord is a character and pub opening hours are a mystery but worth a visit. Better than Wetherspoons!!

Traditional pub food cooked really well to order. Fantastic views and great service. You have to see the cool train on the bar!

I read reviews that mentioned this, our experience was great. We would recommend others without hesitation.
Is it adviable to book or not necessary

Response from CrownNMitre |
if you are coming with larger numbers then yes as we only keep a smaller supply of fresh meat as our butcher delivers daily. However booking is always advised if you would like to visit on a sunday lunchtime.

We are a grade 2 listed building built as private houses in the 1600's and converted into a pub in 1743. Since that date the premises have retained not just the name but also the licence. We have been independently owned and run since 1994 by our charming landlord Roger. We are in a great riverside spot, lots of interesting naval and nautical memorabilia to come and see and up to six well kept ales from small independent breweries , good value, home style, freshly cooked food, Enjoy a view of The Great Ouse from our raised vinery. or join us in the dining room with our beautiful rustic fireplace. well behaved dogs are also welcome here.
