I Love this place ! I've tried lots of places in this area and nothing really compares to it. Lovely food and excellent ales, relaxed and friendly. Much nicer than the over priced and over hyped Hardwick.

We visited again recently and found the same quality of food and real ales as on previous visits. Definitely worth a detour if you are in the area; do try the specials, which are based on seasonal ingredients, and are well designed and beautifully cooked. Not cheap, which may surprise you, but overall the quality is spot on.

This place is a gem. We are so disillusioned by Sunday lunches in a lot of pubs that we usually stay at home and enjoy our own rather than be disappointed yet again! We stayed at Sugar Loaf Shepherd's Huts in the next village over and we went to the Crown for Sunday lunch with a friend, our two small children and our dog (yes, they are dog friendly in the bar area).
The whole experience was lovely. The owners gave us a lovely warm welcome, made a fuss of the dog, the service was great, the place is tastefully decorated in an unobtrusive way and the food was excellent. Everything hot, good quality meat, great yorkshire pudding and the desserts were a cut above. We were 3 adults and 2 kids and had a few starters to share, 3 roast beefs and the kids shared 1 roast plus we all had desserts. It came to around £100 and we were stuffed!
And as for the area around Pantygelli, it really is God's Green Land! Utterly gorgeous. We are going back in a few weeks to collect some kittens from the farm we stayed at, and we will definitely be taking the opportunity to have lunch here again. We've also booked to stay at the same place for my birthday later in the year. Fantastic and everything a good village pub should be. THANK YOU!

Reasonably easy to find. Well laid out decor, great service from the start and excellent food. We all enjoyed our x2 courses. They make their own desserts which is good. Reasonably priced.

Really enjoyed, highly recommended. Plus our chi's enjoyed themselves.

Be careful walking down into the front terrace as it has a precarious step.
