This pub has just changed hands- beware! The lunch time menu has been cut, not a very appetising selection. No specials & poor choice. We wil think twice about re visiting this pub.

We visited the Crown Inn for a evening meal. It's just come under new management and was a little quiet as the previous owners had built quite a reputation. The food was very nice, the steak was especially tasty. The service was also good although we waited quite a while for our dessert and had to remind them of our... More

We visited The Crown last week as we knew it was under new management and wanted to test the waters. It had big shoes to fill and failed miserably. Many of the original staff have left with the old owners so they were short staffed. That was the least of the problem. We ordered our drinks and as we knew... More

I went with a friend to celebrate a birthday lunch. The inside is very attractive, clean, spacious and airy. The staff are very polite and efficient. The food is superb - have been several times and never been disappointed.

Service excellent from excellent waitress Imogen. The food was very good with no long waits between courses. All in all a lovely relaxing meal. So just when I think great I can add this to my list of restaurants to visit I find out that Tom/Mark is soon to leave for pastures new. We wish him well.

Visited here one cold winter evening and were made to feel very welcome. We had an absolutely delicious meal and the service was excellent. We have now been here twice and never been disappointed.

Came here awhile ago, excellent food, cooked properly. Lovely pub to dine in. Definitely eat here again. Staff not overly friendly, which I like, they leave you to dine in peace, instead of asking you 10 times if everything is ok. Well done!

We took our son here and his girlfriend to celebrate their exam results. We had a fab sunday roast and the vegetarian in our party had the risotto. We all had dessert and all agreed the food was a delight. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was charming. A real country pub gem.

Definitely book for a Saturday evening! Nice buzz as we walked in, friendly and sociable. Excellent staff who really knew what they were doing and all about the meals/ Loved my risotto but my companions were very complimentary about the steak, the lamb and the duck breast. Great puddings, a little twist on the norm, can't fault any of it.... More
