Back for Sunday lunch this visit with friends. Many items on menu were not available, apple and rhubarb crumble did not infact have any rhubarb in it ( three portions ) and no clotted cream or vanilla ice cream even! Ladies toilets....cheap supermarket soap unlike decent quality used before, no flowers whatsoever...again reputation built up on sumptuous and quality goods now noticeably cutting back generally .....apart from the prices! We also noted that the waitress was very keen to open bottles of wine....before asking if infact we wanted more at table. Tut tut. What we ate was fine, but restricted choices.

Visited on Boxing day with the family for lunch. We all had the set menu on offer and found it to be of good value and excellent taste.

We all had starters and main courses and all were of generous portions and the mains were accompanied by excellent Yorky puddings and well cooked vegetables. We all passed on dessert as we were full.

Overall we felt the food was of excellent quality with good flavours and good portion sizes and would highly recommend a visit. Service was attentive and consistent.

The pub is very well presented and has a really rustic country feel to it and is very welcoming with a good selection of beers and a good ranging wine list.

This was a Christmas evening treat for my mother who was visiting us from London. I had been recommended to the Crown. Our welcome was courteous but not warm. The pub is a delightful 16th century coaching house and had bags of atmosphere, beautifully candlelit and lovely and warm on a wet winter's night. We had plenty of time to digest the menu and were not rushed throughout the whole evening. We began the meal with starters, a gorgeous creamy crab soup*, a prawn and crayfish cocktail and a blue cheese soufflé. All very tasty. *Although no soup spoon was brought when it was served. A rather glaring oversight. Our mains were a chicken and mushroom risotto and a mixed pork platter for 2. The risotto was incredibly disappointing as was the pork platter. The pork loin with crackling was basically a very large pork chop, little crackling and as we were given no steak knife, it was just impossible to cut the meat with a normal knife. I do like al dente vegetables but the brussel sprouts were like little bullets, and almost uncooked. We did not have a dessert or coffee. Whilst the starters were excellent, I was very disappointed with the mains we ordered. We may have chosen wrongly, but I can only rate our food. As an aside, the gentleman's toilet had no dryer or paper towels when I visited during the evening. For a pub restaurant striving to keep up it's good reputation I hope these points are seen as valid ones.
