We were staying at the De Vere Hotel 2 miles from the Crown Inn and decided to it out rather than the very average food and beer served in the hotel.
The Crown was a great choice the pub was warm and friendly and the landlord made us feel very much at home. The ales were in excellent condition and the menu was varied and interesting. The food was of good quality and ample portions, my only criticism was that the service was a bit slow, although to fair the pub was quite busy on a Tuesday evening.
If we are back in the area and staying at the De Vere we will definitely return
