I often stop here on my bike for a quick beer. Excellent garden, friendly staff, good beers and superb pulled pork! I also regularly go with the family for a more formal meal. Can't fault it so far. Have recommended it to numerous people.

We dropped in here on the offchance that they were doing lunches on a Saturday. We have visited in the past, and the restaurant has the same relaxed but modern rustic atmosphere. Impressive modern flower borders on the way in ( a mixture of grasses and flowers) a little dog to quietly greet you, a traditional bar with stools and... More

We descended as a family on a wet day in Wednesday in June, to an emptyish pub, (it was only just open). We were two doting grandparents, our daughter and son in law, 2 year grandson and 10 week old grandaughter, the staff didn't blink an eye, and were only two glad to fit us in wherever was best for...

This was our first visit to this pub and first impressions were very good, the decor is really nice and a little quirky (very similar to their other pubs). The food was decent pub grub style. The only thing that let the experience down for our group was the service. When we entered the pub, there was one girl serving... More

I have been to the Crown Inn since being under new management at least 6 times and I've always found it to be okay, not brilliant but okay, my last 2 visits have been dissappointing. The service is always impeccable but the food was a let down. We both chose Roast Beef Sunday Roast where the meat was dry in... More

Recommended by our B&B hosts, we ate here on my birthday. Nice atmosphere and surroundings and lovely, friendly staff. We sat in the garden room as the evening was warm and enjoyed starters of scallops (me) and squid (him) and smoked pork belly (me) and smoked lamb special (him). As they smoke their own meat here it had to be... More

Fabulous Sunday lunch with the family. Very accommodating to each child's requirements. Me and my husband both had the roast beef Sunday lunch and it was amazing. Perfect yorkshire puds, drenched in the most delicious gravy I have ever tasted. Plenty of veg and beef cooked to perfection! Well done the Crown!

Always been lucky to live very close to the Windmill Inn in Wymeswold. We decided to give its younger relative the Crown Inn a try on a quietish Saturday lunchtime. No surprise that a similar experience was the result - interesting and well priced menu, good quality food in a nicely designed and furnished establishment. Service was very friendly and... More
