Pies were delicious, puddings decent, service and atmosphere reasonable, vegetables lacklustre, no highchairs!

Pub was very busy and we got in just in time and were able to get a seat straight away. (You cannot make reservations in an evening, but can at lunchtime.) We had to wait a fair while to be served to take our order, but it was very busy and I presume they didn't want to overload the kitchen,... More

I have just eaten at the Crown and Tuns this evening with a party from work and overseas guests. The pies were every bit as good as usual. They did, however, seem a bit overwhelmed by the number of guests this evening so the two people serving the bar and tables between them did not seem sufficient.

A restaurant dedicated to pies and my goodness they are spectacular! We were greeted by a lovely lady who quickly showed us to the pie board where you choose your main course. It's a vary good varied menu with lots to choose from, including non-pie meals. I chose the Pork, stuffing and apple sauce pie and i couldn't of asked... More

Taking the wrong turn can have positive benefits and this was just such a case. Got lost on our way back from the Cotswolds and ended up in Deddington looking for food. Screeched to a halt at the Crown and Tuns and fell into pudding heaven. Wide range of pies with all sorts of intriguing fillings. One of us was... More

A nice pub in a nice village offering a wide selection of pies to suit all tastes, slightly above average prices but so are the pies. Would heartily recommend this pub, which brings with it a very pleasant atmosphere. Weekend bookings necessary. Enjoy.

Ive never been to anywhere quite like it. Such a range of flavors, suitable for gluten free too. It was such a lovely dinner i would... More

I am already looking forward to our next meal at the Crown & Tuns pie pub. It was one of the best meals I've ever had in a pub/restaurant and my family all agreed. You can't book tables but there were still some tables left when we went so you shouldn't need to wait long for one (if at all).... More

The menu is on a board as you enter the restaurant with a good selection of pies with a smaller selection of other foods. The portions are huge so come with a good appetite. Our pies were served with a selection of fresh vegetables. We failed to progress to the pudding selection which looked delicious with big portions. There is... More
