Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best steak I’ve had in a pub for years, served by friendly staff, great beer in a cosy country location. Great value for money, well worth a visit.

Visited The Crown today and had Sunday roast with my son and daughter for Mother’s Day. The food was great and staff very attentive, it was a very nice touch to give all the mums a glass of Prosecco and have a special Mother’s Day...desert. Thanks guys 😊More

Tim the new landlord is lovely and really helpful for my friends engagement party last weekend. Would 100% recommend this pub for its nice atmosphere and social drink. Lovely spot in the summer in the pub garden too.

Lovely new manager, breath of fresh air, pub was very clean and bright. Sunday Roast was average, I had the lamb which was delicious, but disappointed with the selection of vegetables, counted 2 carrots and a mountain of cabbage. I ordered a side of cauliflower...cheese which was huge and could have shared with my husband. The roast potatoes were not good! Only ate half of one, they tasted undercooked with a funny flavour. Was disappointed to see, there was no dessert menu, just ice cream and cake! Who has cake on a Sunday roast/menu, should be something like apple pie with custard etc. Staff? Took us 5 minutes to order 4 drinks, bar staff were very slow and not very knowledgeable, disappointing there was no pink gin or pino on offer! Not only were these bar staff slow, but I thought totally inappropriately dressed and scruffy, one wearing flip flops! Also would be nice to receive a smile from the staff!!! I really hope that this feedback comes as a positive criticism as I would love to see this country pub thrive again.More

New owner has landed and has had the pub about a month now. We fell upon it quite by chance after an enforced motorway diversion. He was very personable and passionate about his food and beers! Good luck. We will return.

I sent an enquiry through the pub website on 14th Sept and I've still not had the courtesy of a reply. It's now 21st September. Because of the lack of response from The Crown, we found somewhere else and had a delicious meal...that establishment will...definitely be getting our repeat business! Why offer a 'contact us' online form when no-one bothers to reply? We like to support local businesses, especially in these difficult times. The Crown must be doing well if they can afford to ignore enquiries from potential customers! We were a sizeable group too...sorry but it's your loss!More

Visited yesterday for a roast and it was one of, if not the best roast I have eaten (apart from mine!) We have only been a few times but is a pleasure to visit, the staff always have a smile and are welcoming. In fact...we enjoyed the pub so much we stayed for the rest of the day. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.More

Nice looking pub with garden and dog friendly and that’s the end of the good experience. Our lunch consisted of raw white chips, thick fatty rubbery tough slices of slimy ham plus two eggs each. The eggs were edible. Total cost for lunch of four...eggs 1 glass of Merlot and 1 lager shandy and eye watering £35. When my husband was asked if we were enjoying our meal he did say it was the worst ham egg and chips we’d ever eaten. The wonderful response from the Landlady was :“There’s ways of making a complaint” and “That’s not what everybody else says” So forewarned is forearmed - I would not eat or drink here ever again and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless you like a bad taste in the mouth afterwards.More

Popped into this pub for a spot of lunch. Spot being the operative world. I ordered Caesar salad with garlic bread. See photo. I waited a good 20 minutes for what can only be described as a very disappointing portion for a dinner. The garlic...bread was 3 strips of garlic bread. Not a half slice. The chicken was over cooked and rubbery and the salad was very limited as was the Parmesan cheese. It was very sparse and certainly not £11.00 worth. It could have been so easily better. Even if you added more lettuce and Parmesan. It was appalling. I had to get up and leave and normally I would compliment on the food. But this was impossible to do so. Robbed is how I feel! Sorry the Crown but you are a pub not a fine dinning experience. Also had to wait nearly 25 minutes. I picked the salad as I thought it would be quick and a good hearty portion for £11.00.More
