We have been to the Crooke Hall Inn for a few meals now and have always been impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the beer. In particular we recommend the slow cooked lamb shank. Having been in many many many pubs over the years, we can honestly say this is one of the friendliest. Keep up with good work. Mike & Cassy.

First time we have been for years and we went on recommendation, the food was good but there wasn't enough, the portion sizes are a little on the small side for me, may be we went on an off day but it seems to lack atmosphere and the staff don't seem to friendly, on the plus side there's a large car park and its in a nice location, we didn't try the beer so I cant comment, from our visit I don't think we will go back soon as there is better and stronger local competition for now.

I previously visited about a year ago, lovely beer but in need of some TLC. Went again last night and what a difference some hard work and imagination has done. The beer is still top class, but the bar is warm, welcoming, comfortable and the service good. Definately a dog lovers pub but well worth a visit nevertheless.

Called here with partner after a walk along the canal. The bar area was busy but got sereved quickly with a pint of Allgates superb California bitter, and a pint of Guinness. This was the second time I had been in this pub within a week and on both occasion the cask ales were spot on. This was the first time that we decided to eat at Crooke Inn. We found a table and ordered steak and ale pie with chips and chicken pie in a white wine sauce. The food arrived in under 20 minuets despite there being a large party. It was piping hot, there was enough chips and they were not the frozen variety but hand cut. Partner chose potatoes which were nicely cooked and fluffy. There was a good selection of vegetables served seperatly.
The pie was straight from the oven as the pastry lid was crisp, inside were chucks of succulent beef. All in all I found this meal to be wholesome, tasty and freshly cooked and well worth the money. I can't understand the two gripes that are on this site as my meal was very good indeed. I for one will be returning to this pub for food and for the cask ales.

We called on a hot summer evening on a canal walk. The veer garden was very busy and goes straight down to the scenic canal path. Loads of good Allgates local ales, friendly service and great value.
