Stopped here after a long drive for lunch. Made to feel very welcome. The female that served us (not sure if she was manager or waitress) was very pleasant and helpful. The menu was varied with choices to suit all tastes. The food arrived promptly and was hot and tasty. Staff checked during the meal to ensure all was ok. Good value for money.

If you are after excellent food,affordable prices, friendly service in warm, comfortable surroundings-then look no further. The Crown has them all and more. A varied and exciting menu, offering a wide choice of dishes to suit every palette, is truly the jewel in this pub's crown. Have visited on a couple of Saturday nights-(I would recommend you book as it can get busy)-all in our party were more than happy with their meals. Food was top notch. We enjoyed it so much we recently chose the venue as the place to hold a family celebration. If nineteen people can all order a variety of meals and everyone be pleased, then they are obviously doing something right! The service is excellent. Polite staff, always waiting to take drinks orders, check if things are okay, nothing is too much trouble. The waiters and waitresses all seem very pleasant and you can rely on them to help out with menu choices if you need assistance.I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Crown for family meals, meal with friends or Sunday lunch.You won't be disappointed.( I also noticed on my latest visit that you can order fish and chips to take away-what a great idea-enjoy a drink at the bar while you wait for your supper!)
