We visited this pub today and had one great meal and one not so good. This is very unusual because we have visited many times before and always had great food or awful food. I have a feeling it is very much down to luck and which chef is working. The gammon is on special at the moment and arrived burnt to a cinder and claimed to be 12oz. There was no way and not great on the pallet. My fellow dinner order a jacket potato with cheese, mushrooms and bacon (the cheese wasn't melted) and she said it was lovely.

The pub has a good sized car park with plenty of space. Although located next to a very tatty (closed?) garage and right on a busy junction, you are aware of neither when settled in the bar. Although we were not staying here, we did eat and drink in the bar. In addition to the restaurant (just off the bar), there are various little areas in which to sit, drink and eat. A cosy little seating area at the far end of the bar is enjoyable to use, especially if you can bag it to yourselves! Firstly the beer! This is pub owned by the local Arkell's Brewery and that is exactly what they sell! It's a pity they do not sell guest ales as I would probably become a regular if they did. Wine by the bottle is good value but be careful when ordering as there appears to be 2 different lists of house wines. The place has improved under the new management. The bar menu has a reasonable range but the specials board holds the kitchens secrets. The various steak specials (as opposed to the steaks on the main menu) are very good but like most british establishments are overcooked. I asked for rare and received medium-to-well (an 8oz rump plus a glass of wine for £5.99). A number of menu items were unavailable. The Fisherman’s Pie had a mash topping which, when combined with a choice of chips or mash (plus vegetables), ran the risk of potato overload - some gravy would also have helped.

Maybe there is a second part to this hotel that I did not see, but personally I would not stay again. I was in one of the 'stables' overlooking the carpark.
The very friendly & helpful lady on reception apologised for the room before even opening the door, but that still doesn't change the dirty carpet or funny smell. The bathroom was alright, but again would benefit from deep cleaning to the bath and shower. The duvet was thin, the pillows flat and the matress springy and cheap.
At £45 with a very tasty breakfast it would be fine if you're not fussy about cleanliness, but I am and consequently I did not enjoy my stay.
I have given one star for the nice staff & one for the very nice breakfast. Premier Inn all the way in future.

Friendly staff,Good and prompt service.Spacious Parking.Clean and tidy.Fantastic food.Ideal for short term stay.2 miles from Rail station/Down center. You get more than you 'd expect from an Old style Inn.If you belong to the guest type that stays indoors using saunas, gyms and other facilities of the sort , look for somewhere else.

The Crown in Stratton is a lovely old fashioned English hotel with it's original features and excellent food i highly reccomend it . I stayed for the night and the prices are very reasonable . The rooms are very well equipped and with a safe ample car park it was a good find on my part . The location is brilliant close to the A419 and the M4 . I organised a party for 20 and the service was brilliant and the food was good very hot and plentyfull. I highly reccomend this old english pub/hotel for any occasion . even the kids could let off steam in the garden which was brilliant . Again highly reccomended keep up the good work chaps . Very happy all round will definately be returning .
