“Our local”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We live in lanchester and regularly drink and eat in crinnions.

When it's sunny it lovely to sit outside in the court yard with a glass of processco.

The steak here is excellent.

Service is always good.

“Not brilliant”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Arrived for brunch. Waited a good 10 minutes before staff brought menus even though there was just another table of 2. Ordered coffee, hot chocolate, toasted teacake and a cooked breakfast. Coffees and hot chocolate arrived straight away but hot chocolate had to be sent back as it was lumpy and not very nice. The staff appeared distracted, one of the staff was eating a sandwich behind the counter whilst serving, very off putting!
The breakfast was very nice, however the teacake was forgotten about and after asking about it, it was brought some time later after the coffee was finished!
The food was very good but the service poor, don't think I would go back, almost felt like we were imposing by being there as staff didn't appear very friendly or welcoming.

“Could have done better.”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Had to try as in out village. Very busy with people, but sorry to say was not impressed with the food at all. Steak was smothered in pepper, Yuk. chips had loads of salt put on (didn't understand why as salt is on the table)So i am afraid to say I will not be going back.

“Great food, but waitresses need some help in busy times”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Been twice now and always seems busy, staff very friendly and food was great. The only downside is the wait for the food, at least you get time for the food to settle. It's a Good thing that the food is worth waiting for :)

“Fancied A Steak”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Like this place, we first came here last year and as we were staying close by decided it was just right for the occasion. Monday night is steak night, 2 steaks for £19.95, great value and good food. If you don't drink the whole bottle of wine, you can take away the rest of the bottle. Rhubarb crumble didn't live up to expectations but main course did.
