Have had a couple of meals here during our stay. Food and service fantastic. Here tonight NYE and all I can say is what an amazing night. Food and service as good as before, atmosphere brilliant but the fireworks at midnight were absolutely stunning. We...were in London for Millenium and these fireworks beat those by a mile. Well done, we will be back next year.More

After a very stressful drive over the moors in thick fog we arrived in Lynton and really needed a comfortable relaxing place to relax, de-stress and eat and drink. We definitely found it here. The very friendly staff found us the perfect place to sit...by the logburner. We were served really well with drinks and lovely food. A perfect evening after a stressful drive. Thank you so much to The Crown!More

Awesomely friendly welcome from the landlady. We had our young dog with us and they welcomed us in and gave him treats. Lovely friendly pub.

Great service and very good food. Best gluten free pizza I've had and so many choices of toppings to add. Good to see the place is still going strong on our return to Lynton after a few years.

Best to book in advance in the current climate as they had to turn lots of people away. Thankfully we had booked and were allowed to partake of a few units of liquid refreshment in the bar before being show to our table. The staff...were happy and chatty, very welcoming and the food was excellent. We will definately go back there when we are in the area.More

Nice restaurant, and lovely food, but completely ruined by horrendous, rude, impatient, discriminatory staff member - best avoided!

Cracking spot for a drink. Friendly owners & staff. Special mention goes to Mark who was an absolute star. Really enjoyed our meal in the cosy comfortable restaurant. Excellent pizza! Didn't stay in the hotel upstairs but can only imagine it would be of a...similar quality. Very impressive all round.More

The management went the extra mile to accommodate us for dinner and we felt valued. The meals were enormous, far too much mains after a huge starter. We were offered a doggy bag but declined. A 9 inch pizza would still have been too much!...We enjoyed the extensive menu so much we booked again.More

We dropped in for two excellent pints of Perfect Job on our first night in Lynton and were reassured by the efforts made to allow everyone to feel safe. Thank you.
