Clean and friendly, reasonable choice of food. Music choices raised an eyebrow...No dismal dirges please! Food tasty, dogs welcome, good location.

Lunchtime mid-January and wood burner going in the main bar so at least nice and warm. Overall environment though very average. Reception likewise. We had a couple of meals which were okay, but not bad in terms of value - cod and chips quite substantial. Two real ales - Tribute and Exmoor - and an array of the 'gassy stuff'.

Friendly local pub serving good food with a smile. Great value too! Not many restaurants and pubs were open in Lynton in January but The Crown was a good find.

Sat down with 34 other diners to enjoy what can only be described as a superb Christmas Day lunch. Every course was so tasty, well prepared/cooked and served with a smile. Portions were generous and limited only by the rapidly expanding size of my waistline. Lovely little touches which were so appreciated by myself, my wife and the other diners,... More

Lee and Rachel laid on a fantastic Christmas lunch for us. We all pre ordered and there was a good choice of yummy food. It was all very well organized. We may not live in the town but we were made to feel very welcome.

We were in Lynton for three days while our last visit was a couple of years ago and we only ate there. We choose the Crown Hotel because it remains open throughout the year the food is very good. I believe the Crown dates back to around 1786 or thereabouts. So we are not talking about your modern hotel chain.... More

My wife and I recently visited Lynton and spent a couple of evenings in the Crown. All the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. There was a good selection of real ales that were well kept. Our meals were good quality and very good value. The menu was fairly standard for a pub but all our... More

Had a really good couple of evening meals here. My husband had the shepherds pie both nights. Good to see vegetables were different on both nights, makes a change from the big chains who serve peas only. Really cosy, sat by the open fire the second night enjoying a glass of wine and then a coffee after the meal, which... More

Cosy pub, good beer selection and a tasty carvery. I get a bit niggly when I get served less because I'm tiny (I eat like a horse!)-this wasn't the case here. We were both served generous portions of carvery-whatever we wanted and the chap serving made a point of checking we were happy with our meals. Lovely vegetable selection (including... More
