I have lived in the area for the past 10 years but never got round to visiting the Crown. I was saving my visit for a special occasion fearing the prices. When it re-opened I was determined to visit and did so with my partner and another couple. The 3 course lunch was £25 which given the quality was exceptional value. The setting is wonderful and you are greeted with two different canapés, both setting the scene for a beautiful meal. For starters I had artichoke pannacotta with slim slithers of perfectly cooked ham. The main course, I had duck, cooked to perfection with a range of flavours around the plate that really gave variety yet perfectly matching. Desert I went for the dark chocolate moose which was presented excellently and again other purée ensured this was no boring affair. My partner had the pollock which again she raved about.
