Greene King pubs as a rule offer a reasonable selection of beers and very good value wines by the glass or bottle with a standard food menu in all their pubs so you know what you are getting when you see the Greene King sign. However, the Crown seems to have lost it's way, personally I would rather walk to the central village pubs. Bar service in the last 2 years has been really hit and miss, if the kitchen is busy then no chance!! I have walked out rather than wait 10 mins!. a complaint raised by many friends. There was a very good Thursay quiz with quiz master which was replaced and one of the staff used, was this cost reduction excercise? because it lost my custom to another village pub. In the current climate of pubs fighting for customers, I am surprised that the bar service was seen as secondary to the kitchen, I appreciate that the Manager has targets to meet but losing bar revenue also means losing kitchen orders because I have eaten in the Crown many times and I am sure that I am not the only ex customer.
