We came across The Crown quite by accident one evening. The band were really good and we decided to stay the night so we could both have a few drinks. I asked the landlord and paid cash for the room (nice perk for him!) He told us to find him before we wanted to go to bed as the room was "tricky to find" After a few more beers we decided to pop over the road for a curry... sat down/ordered/got drinks and then like a whirlwind of weirdness the landlord of the pub flew through the door of the Indian restaurant and demanded in a rather loud voice why we hadn't spoken to him about the room and "if you dont come over here now, you won't be able to find it" My BF and I looked at each other in total astonishment. My BF followed the rude man back to the pub and got the instructions to our room location. Luckily our food wasn't cold and to be honest we laughed at such outrageous behaviour....me thinks the landlord doth indulge a little too much in his own wears!
Our room was adequate but awful curtains that meant no possibility of a lie in. The bathroom was tiny and the toiletries not great for two people.
We were really hungry but couldn't have breakfast after last nights rude outburst from Mr Angry because my partner wouldn't have been able to bite his tongue so we left .
I would definitely return to The Crown but I honestly think that £65 is too high for what they offer with regards to a welcoming manner.
