Description: The Crown is a 15th Century family run traditional village pub with newly refurbished letting rooms. We served freshly cooked foods that are locally sourced where possible and offer great value. We specalise in home cooked foods, not bought in microwaved meals, from our chips to our soups & pies, our extra large Yorkshire Puds and our house special bread & butter pudding with marmalade & grouse whisky. We offer a really warm welcome and are both child & pet friendly.We can boast 3 real fires in the Winter and two garden areas in the Summer, two bar areas (one for pool & darts) and a seperate Lounge. We think theres somthing for everyone at The Crown....come & see?

Stayed in Lea for a long family weekend. Went to The Crown Inn several times. Very friendly pub. Food is lovely. Good pub grub throughout the week that is great value for money. Sunday dinner was delicious. This comes with a choice of meats and a wide variety of veg. Best sunday lunch we've had in a long time. Highly recommended.

We recently stayed (family of mum, dad, son and daughter of 8 & 2) in a cottage up the road from the Crown and slightly worried about heading in due to external appearance however liking a beer we did and so pleased we did.
A great local pub with local characters and the staff were nothing but overly welcoming. Cas, who runs the bar, was the most welcoming bar man I have experienced with strangers in a distant location, exactly what a pub shoul be.
The pub inside is absolutely georgeous and we were there for Halloween for which they had made a real effort with spooky decorations which was brilliant with the kids.
We had a few meals there and I must say it was all incredibly nice and freshly made and the ribs on a Thursday are the bet I have tasted in a long time.
If you can accept a local pub for what it should be and be friendly to staff as opposed to expecting to be served upon then you will love it.
Be friendly and that is what you get back.
Oh and don't be put off by the exterior, the joy is finding these places and taking part.

Having pre-booked a table for 5 for Sunday lunch was surprised on arrival that none had been reserved. There were no Sunday Lunch menus either. Was informed by staff what was available & told to order at the bar. The whole pub is a mish-mash of furniture & a vast amount of ornaments & other tat. There seemed to be dust & cobwebs in certain areas. We also had a couple of dogs & a cat in the eating area, although they gave us no cause for concern. I then had to search the bar for beer mats to put under the leg of the table to stop it rocking every time one of us touched it. The area was also cold & some of our party kept their coats on.
The food arrived & it was immediately obvious most was not fresh or poorly prepared. Mash had lumps, roast potatoes probably out of a bag & not nice. Some veg was ok. All but one left some of this course. We asked for the sweet menu & was pointed to chalk board on wall. We all ordered eventually. When they were served the choc/mint ice cream was that hard it was difficult to attempt to eat. The sticky toffee pudding was reasonable but the "Chefs rhubarb crumble" was inedible. If that was ever crumble I'll eat my hat. One of our party was told that the lemon meringue ordered had run out so went without. On paying the bill when leaving I complained about the food, especially the crumble. This item was not charged for. My other concern is as there was no menu or receipt given, we were unable to check prices or whether what we paid was correct.
I don't know if the people running this pub are new to the business but they have a long way to go & need to vastly improve the quality of their food & the "ambienced" of the place.
