“Fantastic menu”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

This is a very atmospheric restaurant, and the food is plentiful, well cooked, and there is an extensive menu. There is something for everybody - but I have yet to see somebody eat three courses, as they are so large!

“enough for two”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

we visited the hand and crown Friday night, we had to book at least 2 weeks before .as it gets very busy.this was our first visit but our friends had been before. The menu was extensive and there were specials as well. I had fish and could not believe the size of the portions . my husband and I could of shared this meal. it was fantastic food and the service was spot on. too much waste though and you definitely could not eat three courses . Nice to see the manager around keeping check on things. having run a pub ourselves you notice the details. The pub is clean and staff very polite.def would go again.

“Super food again at the 'Hand and Crown'”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I met a friend at this pub for a catch up and supper. It was a good choice. The food was lovely and the service was fine. We had a good evening and it was very busy for a Tuesday night which says a lot!
