Having noticed new signs and decorations at The Crown we decided to try it for lunch, what a mistake, we nearly walked straight back out and with hindsight wished we had.
The inside decor was very shoddy, we felt as if we were sitting in an old peoples home and it all felt a bit grubby. It was badly finished with patches of plaster missing from the walls and pink 1970's bathroom tiles used on the floor to fill the gap of missing flagstones. I guess they were going for the vintage look, but with an abundance of sticky plastic lace table cloths and charity shop nick-naks it was more tacky than retro.
We were greeted by 'all the staff out the back having a fag', with the smell of smoke wafting through the open back door into the bar. We were handed an illegible sandwich menu, made our choices and paid, only to be told ten minutes later that they didn't have either item ordered.
When the meals arrived, they were OK, nice warm par baked rolls obviously freshly cooked, although the cutlery and plates looked like they needed a good wash! We ate up and left as fast as we could.
