Needed a dog friendly pub for a family get together and this fit the bill nicely. Beautiful location out in the countryside with views that even on an over cast day were impressive. The pate starter was delicious and we all had Sunday roasts which were very filling with good size portions of meat and potatoes. The vegetables were served... More

Went to the Crown for a Pre Christmas celebration meal. The welcome is first class and we had a drink before being shown to our table . Starters were from the specials menu red mullet and Bombay potatoes and mine button mushrooms served in a spelt roll lined with Parma ham . Main courses were Rosemary roasted monkfish over burgundy... More

Having spent Christmas locally we decided on a final night treat at the Crown before the long trip home to Scotland in the morning. I've visited the Crown Inn many times on past holidays but just for drinks. I knew that the Inn had a good reputation for food. My wife, two sons and I had a lovely table in... More

There's not much to say - 8 of us on a table and everyone enjoyed! Generous portions and all looks home cooked and hearty. A winner! Recommend booking though.

I visited The Crown for the first time yesterday and it was fantastic. The food was delicious, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the restaurant itself was lovely. I will definitely be going there again!

We revisited The Crown after a two year absence and found it to be as good as ever. Five adults & a well behaved dog were given a lovely table by the fire in the bar. The food was really excellent pub grub & certainly not over-priced. The request for an egg to go with the ham & chips for... More

We have visited the Crown a few times in the evening, and have always enjoyed our meals, but this was the first time we have been there for Sunday lunch. It did not disappoint - a fantastic rabbit starter, and excellent soup, followed by one beef, one pork and one sea bass main course. First class meats and gravy and... More

Went here for a friend's birthday. The meals were extortionate, very much style over substance. Very well presented but the chef needs to work on their flavour as the taste was very bland considering the price of the menu. Soup tasted watered down. Main was flavourless. Dessert was the best part of the meal but again lacking in flavour. Very... More

Use this place a couple of times a year on visits to the area. The fairly typical pub food has been consistently good, the real ale choices are sufficient (including Bass on draught; increasing rare these days). The outside patio is a real hotspot when the sun shines and the interior is simply decorated with enough different sized tables to... More
