Top notch roasts today - Turkey Lamb and Beef or a combo. Never easy to do a good roast but it was all good, roasties and Yorkshire’s in particular. Service was a touch stretched - perhaps struggles with staffing? - but nothing too bad; I guess you just have to chill and relax and not stress if there’s a slight delay in taking orders or bringing drinks. We would definitely go again for a roast.

Going to the garden centre nearby and decided to have lunch as well. Good welcome, seated promptly and order for drink and food taken timeously. Chicken and prawn curry very good and plenty of it but a tad 'hot' for my wife; fish and chips excellent and a large piece of fish....so far best in the area round Henley on Thames. Friendly and pleasant staff who enquired at the right time if we were enjoying our meal and thanked us for coming at bill time....glass of wine +soft drink plus food £37.00....great value for money

We stayed here this past weekend. The room was dirty, my socks were black from walking on the floor, light bulb missing. toilet seat broken(still is). Good size breakfast pity it was floating in grease, a poor standard all round for £100 a night You will not see us again. Lawson

Third time here for a two night stay in June 2021, having previously stayed in January 2019. Pleased to see that The Crown still offers a high standard of service. Rooms were clean and very comfortable, offering everything you need for a short stay. The food was excellent - great taste and presentation. Also a good choice even with a restricted breakfast option due to covid adjustments. The best "pub" food that we have ever tasted. Excellent friendly and attentive staff. We will be back!

Fab food, and a great selection.. staff cannot be more friendly and accommodating. Clean and COVID safety working correctly. Much better than The Coppa Club in Sonning we visited the week before.... better quality of food, selection and price
