Typical village pub with excellent range of beers and mostly simple but good pub grub. Occasional special meals on board can be first class. Sunday lunch generally excellent at sensible prices. Parking difficult but spaces in side roads opposite next to old church.

The Crown, in the pretty village of King's Somborne above the Test Valley near Stockbridge, is a wonderfully traditional pub. No designer has been consulted to recreate an "authentic" feel because the pub has never been modernised. Full of local people, it has lots of real character and serves traditional English food. It may win no awards but it is... More

We stopped here on a Sunday lunchtime, while exploring the area, and what a lovely surprise it was. The pub itself is warm and welcoming, with some VERY comfortable armchairs as well as more standard pub furniture: the staff were very friendly, efficient and charming: the beer is kept very well: but as for the food.......just wonderful. I had liver... More

We attended a Xmas meal in a large ladies group and I thought the food was excellent. I had the turkey dinner and the presentation and quality of food could not be faulted. It really looked like my meal had been lovingly prepared, and not what you would expect in a large group. I had a similar meal elsewhere tonight... More

At the time I booked a table I specifically asked for a comfortable location in the pub. I turned at the four of us were wedged into a very small space with barely sufficient room to sit comfortably. The food was excellent and the service good. We would go back if we were guaranteed a table with more leg room.... More

Fun night out-excellent food and attentive staff! Varied choice of salmon,turkey,beef and risotto-all tasty and the portions very generous. The cheese platter was enough for 3 to share. A great start to Christmas! Thank you to all the staff

We've visited the pub before and found the staff welcoming. However, today's visit by a group of us wasn't up to previous standards. Although the meals were ordered in advance, they were a bit slow to come and the verdict was mixed. Some of us were pleased, others a bit disappointed. The beers, however, were well presented and the Crown... More
