“Relaxing welcoming restaurant”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

I organised a golden wedding 'party' for my in laws here. What fantastic staff and service. A lot of work has been done to extend and the cleanliness is second to none. Love the fact you can see in the kitchen too. Buffet food was beautiful at a brilliant price too. Despite being a busy Friday lunchtime for them we didn't want or wait for anything. Extremely accommodating, helpful and nothings too much trouble. All staff were so polite. Thank you for helping make the day special. Will be booking a table for a meal next time I'm in the area. Highly recommended.

“Best service I've experienced anywhere in years”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I came to this pub twice over the bank holiday weekend, and I was amazed by
the friendliness and general service level of the staff. Not in memorable
history have I been anywhere where I have felt such a warm welcome by the
staff.

“First, but certainly not last visit”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

We visited for the first time last night, booking a table for 6 pm as we were going with our 15 month old granddaughter and so wanted to get an early meal. The first impressions were excellent, friendly, efficient and smart (and understandably busy). The friendly waiting staff offered and delivered our granddaughters meal first, allowing her to be settled and partly fed before ours arrived, a very nice touch we felt and much appreciated by our daughter who was able to eat her meal in relative peace.

Good value for money in our opinion £80 for 4 + child incl bar drinks and service tip.

Very smart and friendly waiting staff, without being bothersome - a fine balance it seems these days.

We will be back next time we are visiting. Thank you.

“Inaccurate website”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We made a special 30 mile round trip to the Crown, having read on their website that morning that bar lunches were served until 2.30. We arrived at 2.10 to be told that the kitchen had closed. No offer of a sandwich or snack, even though people were still eating their main courses and might be expecting pudding to follow.

Running up to Easter, one would expect some concession to visiting tourists.

If restaurants choose to have a website they should ensure it is accurate if they want to encourage new customers.

I am so sorry you made this visit and our kitchen was closed. I have looked at the website and we state restaurant open from 12-2 and bar 12-2.30 and perhaps this can be interpreted in different ways.I am sorry if this has caused confusion and we will ensure we make all efforts to avoid this happening in the future.Please contact me personally to discuss this matter further.
