Food was quite acceptable although there was far too much cranberry sauce in the bacon, brie and cranberry roll.

Service was very slow indeed for my companions who had ordered separately, but mine wasn't very speedy either. There were only two staff front of house, as far as I could see, and there weren't that many customers.

I will give it another try sometime.

Had the 2 course special which at £10.99 was a steal. Food good and tasty, service OK but the young waitresses give the impression that they haven't got a clue what's going on. A part from that lovely food, good atmosphere.

Last night we had my husbands 60th birthday party at Crinnions 90 guests ages 8months to 85 years attended. All ages were catered for,bouncy castle for the children (free of charge) marquee at very reasonable cost, beautiful barbecue and salads Vegetarians catered for too. Plenty of Staff on hand to help with our every need. Nothing was a bother the owners very laid back and obliging Had a wonderful night, even a little bit of rain didn't manage to spoil our evening. Phone never stopped ringing to tell us what a great night our guests had. Thanks Crinnions

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.

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.
