Have eaten here several times recently and always had really tasty food and good service. Takeaways equally good and not expensive. Authentic pub setting with a great selection of Asian dishes.

All the best reviews are quite justified in this unusually situated restaurant inside a vibrant local pub in a small village near Ross on Wye. We stayed next door in a highly rated B&B so this is really well placed to dine and have a...More

Increasingly I find Bangladeshi/Indian takeaway food to be about as dull as ditchwater and we agonised over where to try on a Saturday evening. This was tasty, as described and well worth the drive. There were some decent ales on at the bar so the...More

Valentines evening - they had made a real effort with balloons & candles & a set menu for 2 for 30 pounds. In fact we both fancied more expensive dishes and enjoyed those. Imagine our surprise when they included the dishes in the set menu...More

We recently ate here on two evenings whilst staying at the fabulous B&B next door. It is very much a local pub (500 years old) with lots of character, cask ales and of course, in Herefordshire, local cider. We found the staff friendly and helpful,...More

Sorry for just getting back to you, I think it is just Indian food but all the food is freshly prepared so if your not into spicy food you can ask for it to be done to your liking. It is in a pub but I'm not sure if it... More

The Crown is a 15th Century family run traditional village pub with newly refurbished letting rooms. We served freshly cooked foods that are locally sourced where possible and offer great value. We specalise in home cooked foods, not bought in microwaved meals, from our chips to our soups & pies, our extra large Yorkshire Puds and our house special bread & butter pudding with marmalade & grouse whisky. We offer a really warm welcome and are both child & pet friendly.We can boast 3 real fires in the Winter and two garden areas in the Summer, two bar areas (one for pool & darts) and a seperate Lounge. We think theres somthing for everyone at The Crown....come & see?
