The atmosphere was great, the food (quality) was good, the wine prices were acceptable - BUT one of our party is allergic to garlic, and this created (apparently) a major problem for the kitchen. It seems every dish on the mains menu - apart from fish n chips and burgers - contains garlic. No effort was made to suggest a... More

Really great experience. I had not pre booked a table, but was made very welcome and was guaranteed a table, and at the time I requested. The menu is varied and includes a good selection for vegetarians. Food was served in very good time and of a very good quality.

Met my friend here as we always enjoy this lovely pub, full of charm and character. Staff friendly and welcoming, even though busy we didn't feel rushed. Had sandwiches and chunky chips, can't fault any of it. Will go again.

Fantastic meal, excellent staff who managed to serve a full to bursting lunchtime service. Food was excellent, lots of choice. Icecream for desert was superb especially the toasted marshmallow and stollen flavours! Will def go back!

If you want old England head here! Tudor beams. Inglenook fireplace. Stained glass. Old timber. It is is all here. The ale and the gin selection is to die for... well done! The food is good but overpriced. This must be the destination for all middle class, Landrover, green wellyboot owners.. Relax in style. What a place!!!

I live in the village and you can enjoy the Crown as a great local for a pint but also as hotel and restaurant. Great focal point for exploring the countryside and friendly staff as well.

Fantastic evening! My husband's birthday is 5th November, and we have always wanted to see the bonfire and fireworks at Chiddingfold, so my daughter booked a table for dinner too!! We were seated at a lovely round table - which was fab as eight family and two small grandsons, who had room to play with their cars! Huge thanks to... More

We booked a table at The Crown as we do each year so we can enjoy the infamous bonfire night celebrations. The food was delicious and the staff were very accommodating enabling us to eat courses in between the festivities.

Fantastic round table in a private room which was still open to the full pub so we could be part of the buzzing atmosphere. Food was great and the staff were attentive and knowledgeable.

I had lunch at the crown and ordered local sausages, mash potatoes and sticky onion gravy. The result was three overlooked and bland sausages, gravy that was runny with onion and mash. A very ordinary meal from a once excellent restaurant.

Thank you for your review and we were very surprised by your comments. The sausages come from an award winning local butcher and the gravy is made from fresh stock made on site, which takes 3 days to create a beautiful depth of flavour. We hope that you will return in the not too distant future to see that we... More

Beautiful stained-glass windows provide a stunning backdrop to our dining rooms, whilst our downstairs bar has an informal ambience. Our AA coveted 5 Stars has been awarded again in 2013 with the added bonus of a yellow star award, to sit alongside our 'Highly Commended status' for 2013. We are proud to be in the top 10% of only 11 Inns in England.
