When asking about a place to eat, the Crown seems to edge out its next door neighbour....probably due to price and dome say, quality.
We never actually ate in the restaurant, preferring to take advantage of the great weather and eat al fresco out front. Good atmosphere with loads of day trippers.
I had the seafood platter and it was awesome... not 1st date food...finger bowls needed to wash off the crab, lobster and other bits thrown in. My wife had the the sea bass and she reckons it was most excellent. Service was good and staff very helpful. Lovely location

The main thing that tempted me into the Crown was wandering by & seeing the dishes everyone was eating looking really good. The sign on the hotel boasts of their AA award, but it should be noted that they won this 10 years ago (it tells you this inside). We opted to share the hot seafood platter - Half lobster thermidor, crab claws, mussels marinier with salad & crusty bread. We added a side of chips onto this to make it go further since it wasn't technically a sharing platter. The food was great though a little creamy sauce overdose as a whole - definitely was glad we were sharing it. The "crusty bread" was a pathetic little not very crusty roll - my main complaint here, especially given the price of bread. The chips were great, tasted like chippy chips. The service was fine, nothing standout. We enjoyed our meal & would happily go back here again.

We had a Sunday afternoon meal in the Crown, portpatrick was sunny and busy with tourists and locals, a good sign straight a way was to see a local restauranter having a drink on his day off, two breaded fish and chips were ordered and arrived at the outside table seconds after I returned with my real ale, all were very good. The Crown delivers consistently good food and service, without any fuss, which others could learn from. Good bucket and spade seaside town pub food.

Go here with my family every time I am in the area. They have the freshest seafood especially the crab that is caught by local fishermen. No scrimping on portions either. Atmosphere is homely and relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks guys.
