“Beer Garden And Lunch”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Visited your restaurant to enjoy a few cold beers in the garden and as i was sat there, came a drift of smells coming from the kitchen.. which put me in the mood for some food.. so i choose to have a look at the menu..... after doing so i was suprised how well priced the food was and decided to order the 5oz gammon with pineapple and chips and meals for my kids... well what can i say the food was amazing washed down with a nice cold pint of strongbow whilst sitting outside.. what more can u ask for... even though its a very busy pub the staff were polite and very helpful.. and most of all my kids were happy with there food and the playground.. i will defenatly revisit this place again.... thank you very much for your food and prompted service. :)

Hi robertj

Thank you so much for your lovely review of the Little Crown on 11th July 2013!

On this particular day we were extremely busy and were not expecting the large number of customers that visited the pub! The whole team excelled themselves to offer the same high standard of food and service that our customers are used to, so it is with great pleasure that I read your review as I can see that our hard work paid off!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your food and the service, and that your children had a fun afternoon in the garden!

We hope to welcome you back in the future,

Kindest regards,

Emma

“Anniversary Dinner”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Twelve of us enjoyed a gorgeous meal at the Little Crown on Saturday 15th June. The service is always good and there's a nice friendly atmosphere - but the main reason for going there is the delicious food, better than pub grub. A vast choice - we virtually all had different meals. Cant wait to go again - definitely worth a visit

“Good food and beer.”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Visited the restaurant on the spur of the moment early on a drizzly Thursday evening. The food was freshly cooked, plentiful and tasty. The service was efficient and friendly. There is a good range of dishes on offer for vegetarians and meat eaters and prices are reasonable. The Inn is a little bit out of the way,but worth seeking out. I would think that buying off the daily specials board is a good idea if you are in a hurry, but the ambience in the restaurant is comfortable, the music is not too loud and there is a good choice of drinks on offer to enjoy with conversation while you wait for your chosen food to be freshly cooked.

we would recommend this for anything for an informal meal with friends to family celebrations - will not disappoint.
