“Beutiful pub food was not great”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Stopped here with a group of 7 after walking in the area. The location is beautiful in a very smart village. The food has mixed reviews with the home made steak pie a hit. The fish and chips was average and after reading the reviews was expecting better and for the price wasn't great. Inside the pub has a great feel and is beautifully decorated throughout

“Disappointed”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Sunday lunch - bar staff, friendly, welcoming and immculately turned out. Lovely table, so far so good. Lots of certificates proclaiming quality food etc on the table. We were very excited about our lunch. But - and here we go: meat tough, dry, tasteless. Potatoes, dry and v disappointing. Vegetables - we like al dente but these were raw! Politely paid our bill in the bar area and the shock was we were charged as much for one course as we might have been charged for two. We meekly paid and left, never to return again. So sad and so disappointed.

Came upon The Crown on our way to Ripon races. The food we had was excellent, good service, beautiful village, we couldn't have asked for more, a lovely start to our day out.
Highly recommended.

““Totally superb in every way.””
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Absolutely wonderful lunch. We couldn't have asked for better service or a better meal. It was completely delicious and, as before (this was our fourth visit), we enjoyed every aspect of our visit.

“Wonderful food again!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We returned to the Crown after a gorgeous walk in the area and, after an initial frosty reception from a member of staff who we had never seen before, enjoyed another fantastic meal served by delightful staff. The broccoli and yorkshire blue cheese soup was wonderful, followed by a delicious main of duck on a bed of greens and chorizo. Everybody in our group thoroughly enjoyed each course. The Crown is a place always to be relied on for quality food and drink in a beautiful location.
