Description: The Crown Hotel in Stamford is located in the heart of the stunning town renowned for its striking Stamford stone and historical marketplace. Built in the beautiful Stamford stone itself, with 28 charming rooms, the 'Red Cow' the Crown pub, lounge area and bar, the Crown Hotel is a real jewel of KNEAD Pubs. The Crown Hotel is currently transforming into one of KNEAD Pubs. The 'Red Cow' the Crown is our wonderful pub/restaurant and it proudly boasts delicious KNEAD dishes with ingredients sourced from our Tallington farm just six miles down the road, or elsewhere locally whenever possible. The décor has picked up the signature KNEAD attention to detail – with quirky features appearing on every wall and in every room. And, of course, the Crown Hotel serves up a fantastic selection of ales, wine, cocktails and more. If you’re looking for a hotel in Stamford that is in a great location for the town’s tourist attractions or for a central stopover for business, then the Crown will be delighted to welcome you. The Crown is packed with character through and through – from its beautiful courtyard perfect for summer’s days, to its original building dating back to 1260.

Reviewed September 25, 2012

we always have a meal at The Crown when visiting Stamford or Burghley Horse Trials. We have been going for many years and it never disappoints. The owners are great and several of the staff have been there for a very long time. Very welcoming and superb locally sourced food.

“Thanks Tom!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

This is about the Crown's function room in particular rather than the restaurant. I came cap in hand to the Crown quite late on looking for a function room for a Saturday lunchtime "do" for my Daughter's 18th birthday. They couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. They made it really easy for us and on the day they were superb. Special mention for Tom who looked after us very well. The room was great, the food was really good considering there was 20 of us to be fed at the same time. I'd say this function room is the jewel in the (ahem) Crown! (Sorry)
Thanks Tom, you and the team were great. If you need a smallish function room in Stamford for about 20 for your "do" then the crown has to be the first choice.

“Mixed quality and value”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Of the 4 of us having lunch at the Crown, 3 had very mundane dishes at high prices. I had a very tasty belly pork dish beautifully presented but small in size and at a similar price as the others. The service was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was comfortable and smart.
