“Excellent, always go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The food as per was amazing, the appetiser of salmon fish cakes and potato skin crisps where beautiful and the salmon for my main was equally lovely, finished with the cheesecake which was to die for! Been before and will certainly return!

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

Went on a Saturday lunchtime and hadn't realised the restaurant had turned Italian. We arrived at 12.45 to be told that the gammon, fish and chips and something else on the menu were no longer available. My friend chose the salmon which she said was nice. However, I chose the lasagne thinking it would be something special as it was being cooked by an Italian. Wrong! The crust was burnt and the lasagne itself was not particularly tasty. Also a very small portion and I thought it was overpriced at £8.25. A microwave meal would have been tastier! The drinks weren't cheap either. Had a mocha coffee after and the glass was only half full. I'm not surprised the place was empty - I don't consider it good value for money and I won't be returning anytime soon

Dear Customer

a couple of things, just to be absolutely and completely fair.

First YES I have an Italian Restaurant, you are right, as the Italian flag is every where and the name RISTORANTE must explain. Obviously you came before when the "special meals" where cheaper ...
Second I think it's a good sign when some items are no longer available, that means freshness, don't you think?
Third my prices are absolutely competitive in the region and i guess you cannot find any Italian Restaurant in the surroundings with better prices. The drinks are definitely in line with all the competitors, if not cheaper.
Fourth you had the traditional lasagna that is one of the best seller in my Restaurant.

Apparently your friend appreciated the meal, but you probably be used to microwaved meals. I suggest next time you have a similar disappointing meal, to call the manager or the owner, and sort out the problem immediately.

Regards

“Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Went for the steak and ale pie which was big but lacked flavour and taste. The service was polite but slow to take orders and to get food out. Had a mini sample of some soup which helped to stave off hunger as we waited for our starters. The food was average but a pleasant atmosphere!

Dear Customer

I am sorry to hear that you did not appreciate my steak and kidney pie cooked three hours in Guinness and red wine, with bay leaves, salt, pepper and juniper berries. It is the first time ever I received a bad opinion on this dish.
Hope to see you again to try some other specialties in my restaurant.

Arrivederci

“Excellence in Claverdon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

My wife and I along with 2 friends had a most enjoyable meal at the Crown Inn last night. The staff and their professional service were very good and the friendliness and personal attention of the owner Massimo was much appreciated.

The food was excellent. Freshly prepared and very tasty, real authentic Italian cooking. When we couldn't decide on dessert, Massimo provided each of us with a 'sampler plate', each containing 4 pots of different desserts! They were all excellent!

Very nice atmosphere added to the evening. Recommended.
