“A big country pub with good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

We've been here several times since this country pub was revamped and improved a couple of years ago.

It's in a beautiful old building which has been sympathetically modernised. Unlike a lot of old pubs, the Nevill Crest & Gun is big, so there's plenty of space. The staff are friendly and efficient, the pub food is of good quality and there's a strong range of beers and wines available. Prices are not cheap, but reasonable considering what is on offer.

The main focus is food, but some customers are just there for a drink so it retains something of a pub atmosphere. Because of its size, the place can feel a little impersonal if it's not busy - particularly if you're in the conservatory area which feels a bit like a garden centre cafe!

“A trusted favourite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Out of all of the restaurants round Crowborough, we return here time and again. Always a creative menu with solid favourites and interesting specials, great service, good selection of wines, beers, ciders, ales, friendly atmosphere, loads of parking.

“Great burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lovely pub on outskirts of town, nice menu and the food did not disappoint. Only complaint is that the lager is sold in the style preferred in the South - warm and flat! Otherwise, couldn't fault the place!

“Bank holiday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

This large pub and well set out gardens caters for family groups but the bar gets very busy at peak times, waiting up to 15 mins to place or change an order and with people jostling for position! However, all food arrived quickly and was well cooked and presented. The bar staff were too busy to give accurate info about the beers and ciders available - we discovered them ourselves. The desserts were of a good standard but overpriced in our group's opinion - we expected more wow for our money (or more scoops of icecream)! That said we would return on another sunny afternoon if in the area.
