We enjoyed both the meals we had at the Crown. It's not haut cuisine, but the servings were generous and they had an eat-as-much-as-you-like salad bar. The beer was well kept and the prices were fairly reasonable.

My only real issue with this establishment, was it's refusal to take card payments - unacceptable in the 21st Century IMO and a definite point loser here.

If you're into posh suroundings, don't bother.
Although a little rough around the edges, worth a visit.
We ate there 2 out of 3 nights, & wished we had eaten there for all three!
They keep very good ale, & we got on with the landlord very well.

The food was terrible, the lamb curry was all grissle - the tast was awful. I asked for it with chips as I don't eat rice - it came with rise. The presentation was terrible. It was taken away and brought back with undercooked chips. The pompadom was covered with grease!
my husbands steak was good - but the chips onion ring mushrooms and toms were poor!

we should have sent my plate of food back a second time!
