One of my favourite local place - great food served all day, friendly staff and lovely surrounding, can sit outside weather permitting. Food is excellent - more restaurant quality and priced very reasonably. My son enjoyed home made chicken nuggets from kids menu - not the frozen prefabricated rubbish you get in other places, my Fish and chips was great... More

Eight of us for Sunday lunch and The Crown recommended by our son in law so gave it a go. Service was ok although a little training would not go amiss, however the soup was cold and had to be returned. The roasts were tasty and the meat well cooked but again only just warm. The cauliflower veggie main dish... More

Stayed here with a friend after a day at Champneys spa. The room (number one) was beautiful...everything you could want, even hair straighteners! Huge room and bathroom the size of most hotel rooms with a big wet room shower and Clarins smellies. The room is separate from the pub across the garden so it's nice and quiet. We ate in... More

The crown is our local 'go to' pub as we have had good experiences. However on Sunday evening we went with friends and were quite disappointed. My partner and I had the roast; the meat was ok, but the potatoes and veg were so hard and almost inedible. The waitress did get us some mash, however perhaps next time we... More

Hallo Emily "Disappointed" Oh no, what a disappointing review of us here at The Crown in Henlow, where I note you have reason for complaint. The vegetables and potatoes were obviously not right, I apologise for this. We, as a result of your review, have looked at our cooking procedures and systems, especially after a busy Sunday, to ensure quality... More

We were a large group of 13, including 7 children. The Crown were very accommodating and the service was excellent, they fitted us in with only 90 minutes notice on a Friday evening and were very accommodating of the children. It's a nice pub and restaurant and I believe they have rooms as well. There is a good size carpark... More

I went to the Crown expecting to only have one course but the menu included some interesting starters, and by the time we had tasted the quality of the first 2 courses we felt that a third course would be too good to miss. Every course was absolutely excellent. Far more interesting that you would ever expect at a local... More
