“Traditional pub Sunday lunch didn't excite.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

There were 11 of us comprising 3 generations. The pub is traditional/basic with certainly no pretentions to culinary greatness. The local beer was excellent as was the roast beef which was succulent but one of our number was very disappointed in her roast pork choice. Meal came plated ; red cabbage was good but kids simply don't like it. The Yorkshire puddings were chewy, below average and a bit tasteless. Sweets were reasonable and very generous.
In view of previous Tripadvisor comments, which had tempted us here, we felt a bit let down and that we'ld made the wrong choice of hostelry in Askrigg.

“Not as good as we hoped”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

We were staying in the area at a cottage recently and had checked Tripadvisor before leaving home. The Crown was highly rated and we went one evening expecting great things. The food and drink were fine we had no specific problems, service was ok. The problem was that because of previous comments we were expecting something really special and although everything was adequate we were disappointed.

“Great food, service and value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Four of us arrived at about 6.45pm on Sunday evening and whilst we got a table the place was busy even though it quietened down a bit later - not bad for a Sunday. Well prepared food, lovely ingredients and and ample quantity, we'll certainly visit again when next in the area. Any tips for this week only were given to a local charity, what a nice idea. Thank you.

“Good Pub Grub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We tried to book for Saturday night but they don't take booking so we arrived at 6.30pm and got the last table. The food took a long time to come but we were warned it would. The menu is the same as you find many Pubs in Britain but the food is hoe cooked and very good. Top tip get ther early.
