“Family fare”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The Crow's Nest seems always to be busy and for good reason. The food is reasonably priced and plentiful. The menu contains all the popular 'usuals' you would expect of a family grill, the service is usually prompt and efficient and it is very inclusive. An ideal place for families of all ages. It's not going to win a Michelin Star, but the food is fine. There's a nice play area for younger children and if you get a window table and a clear day, there's a lovely view over Aylesbury Vale. Caters for those with allergies too, can't be bad.

“18th Birthday Celebrations”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited – Sunday 5th May – 18th Birthday Celebration

We visited The Crows Nest in Tring on a Sunday lunchtime to celebrate my son’s 18th Birthday. We have been before on various occasions and overall we were comfortable with our choice of venue.

Our group consisted of 3 adults (including the birthday boy) and 2 children. The table was booked for 12:45pm and I arrived at about 12:15pm and spoke to the Deputy Manager (Lisa?) who was fantastic in respect that when I explained the reason for our visit, nothing was too much trouble. She took our pre-purchased birthday cake & understood that this was to be brought out at the end of the meal.

Our waitress was “Hayley” and I must say she was fantastic. The restaurant was extremely busy during our visit and all staff seemed to be rushed off their feet but despite this we felt as though our custom was important and that the reason for our visit was known and the staff were keen to ensure we were well looked after. Despite being busy, all of the staff seemed happy and willing to please all of their paying customers.

The food arrived slightly longer than expected but this was understandable due to the time of our visit but despite this Hayley was very attentive and ensure we were kept stocked up with drinks etc. No complaints about the food, we all had something different and it all arrived at the same time. Puddings were delicious.

A very reasonable bill arrived at the end and I cannot fault the visit.

It was certainly one to remember, especially for the special occasion, for the right reasons.

“great meal”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

always a pleasure to visit this restuarant, the staff are always friendly, letting you know anything not available on the menu, soup of the day etc , great service and a pleasant break between courses not being rushed or too slow, good menu and the food was excellent, will certainly be back , and the rewards card comes in handy too as it was our anniversary and a free bottle of wine was included

“Very very slow service for a not great meal”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Saturday sunny lunchtime meal. We were seated very fast and fantastic views over the reservoirs. Service very slow. We waited 45 minutes to receive our drinks and taking our order. The food was ok. The chips were dry as obviously sat under a heat lamp for a while.The salad was shriveled and dry. After such a long wait we decided against trying the dessert. I am not sure I will return to this restaurant again.
