“Great food & nice peaceful atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Lovely country pub, with a nice open fire. Their food is very good and fairly priced, friendly staff and a nice location. Perfect for those cold winter nights! I can certainly recommend the amazing desserts, you just need to make sure you leave enough room for them at the end of your meal!

“Fantastic food fantastic service and great value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Ten of us got together for our trade union festive dinner at the Crown Inn. I used to go to this inn for meals years ago then it closed and changed to a house. I did not think it could be as good as the old Crown Inn but I was wrong. Our hostess was charming, the food was exquisite and the prices were very reasonable. The owner came to have a chat with us and told us about the dishes on offer and at the end of the meal gave us all a pre order menu for February with an unbelievable special price of under £12 for two courses. This was an offer for existing customers, they are closed for some of January for their holidays so check before you turn up.
Give it a try you will love it

“Great food and charming chef and host”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

My husband and I were visiting friends in Kent and they suggested we go to The Crown Inn for dinner. We had delicious food and a charming chef/hostess who looked after us superbly. If we are lucky enough to return from Australia to Kent, we would certainly go to this Inn again and would recommend it to friends from Australia as a great place to eat.

“Excellent takeaway pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

We went to The Crown on a recommendation to try the wood fired oven pizza's so we didn't eat in the restaurant itself.
It did feel a bit awkward walking through the restaurant to the bar to order our pizza's and then having to wait for them to be cooked, but the friendly owner made us more than welcome.
The time we waited allowed us to check out the menu's and the choices looked really good and after watching the food coming past, I can say it looked really nice as well.
Before the pizza's arrived we had already decided to come back and try the restaurant another time, it really looked nice.
So, onto the pizzas, they really are excellant! Nice fresh ingredients on top of a nice thin based pizza dough. It was definitely worth the 25 mins drive to try these out.
Would definitely go back again.
