“So disappointed....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have been to the C & C several times so clearly enjoy the food, however on a recent visit I was really disappointed, the wine was good but not the food. I wanted to complain but didn't want to embarrass my guest. The starter was unmemorable, the rare steak was cooked more than medium, barely pink; the loin of cod was tasteless and served on a bed of Parmesan mash... if it wasn't packet mash then the chef needs to be congratulated in making real potato taste just like packet mash. The brioche bread and butter pudding was solid and the coffee chocolate pot was so large and rich I doubt many people could eat it. Come on C & C, what has happened to you?

“New Owners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have really enjoyed going to the C&C for the last two years and especially enjoy the Thia Chicken Curry on a Friday night. The previous owners Will and Julie were extremely efficient if sometimes a bit stressed, but that was only because the place was 'always' busy!!

We went last evening for the first night of the new owners and although a few changes had been made, such as the outside furniture which was welcome, I was also surprised that they were changing some of the established favourites like the food and wine!! Also the new owner was a little in your face but this may calm down!!

We shall wait and see whether the changes are for the better or just all 'show'!

“Good Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Chosen as a lunchtime venue the C&C was not found wanting. Food was excellent we took one of the daily specials which whilst not cheap certainly represented good value for money. It was cooked perfectly and well presented. Staff were were young but attentive, couldn't ask for much more!

“Above average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

We have eaten at the Crown and Cushion several times , and each time we have had a rather nice meal.It can get very busy on a nice day but you would expect that from a good pub in nice surroundings.we have always received excellent and friendly service.
Do not expect cheap chain pub prices.
That said I do feel prices are a little high for what you get, but with so little competition and so many rubbish chain food pubs. I guess within reason a place like the Crown and Cushion can get away with it.
A bit expensive , but recommended.
