Description: The Crown Inn Chiddingfold, Condé Nast Johansens Most Excellent Inn in Great Britain 2010 and awarded Recommended Status for 2011. An idyllic English pub, The Crown Inn nestles in a quiet corner of the picture-perfect village green of Chiddingfold in Surrey. Totally refurbished, the olde world charm of the property has been lovingly maintained and sympathetically blended with a more sophisticated and contemporary decor. Beautiful stained-glass windows provide a stunning backdrop to our dining rooms, whilst our downstairs bar has an informal ambience. Our AA coveted 5 Stars has been awarded again in 2013 with the added bonus of a yellow star award, to sit alongside our 'Highly Commended status' for 2013. We are proud to be in the top 10% of only 11 Inns in England.

“Fabulous time to match the lovely company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Visited this beautiful inn for the first time for a Saturday lunch. What a great choice ! I had a beautiful fruity Sauvignon served nice and chilled in a lovely big glass and got asked to try beforehand which is always nice. We then chose a table by the window so we could look out to the green and the church. We were given good service which was attentive but not overbearing. I chose the mushrooms and poached egg and my friend had the ham hock to start. Both were exquisite. Great flavours and nicely presented with perfect portion size. The ham hock with the homemade piccalilli was just Devine and my meaty mushrooms along with the runny egg and chive oil was simply delicious. We then both chose the lamb rump for main. Again, beautiful flavours with simple ingredients. Really made my Saturday with perfect company and extra special one. Would love to return soon and will recommend to anyone. A truly wonderful experience in beautiful surroundings

“Lovely cosy pub with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

The Crown is a local pub for us and we often go there for lunch or an evening meal. It is very friendly and relaxing and. the food is always good.. We often have a takeaway meal on a friday The. Fish and chips are lovely and very good value for money. They now have a larger menu for takeaways.

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

I had Sunday lunch here 2 weeks ago for my dads birthday, there were 10 of us and the food was absolutely fantastic and the service matched it! The starters were extremely tasty and great fun to share, the main courses were excellent, the best roast lunch I have had out in a very long time!

“New Year's Eve in Chiddingfold”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

A party of 15 of us spent New Year's Eve 2013 at The Crown Inn in Chiddingfold, Surrey and had a great time. There was a black and gold theme to the evening which everyone made an effort to join in with. The staff were very friendly and looked after us very well. We enjoyed copious canapes to start; tempting tapas to follow; burgers, vegetable fahitas and thai green chicken curry as mains; a pile of profiteroles for dessert; and cheese biscuits to round things off. We braved the rain to watch a fire act outside and then danced the night away to a dj. There was fizz at midnight and all for £42.50 a head (plus drinks). Think we might be doing it again in 2014! Well done to everyone at The Crown Inn.
