I arranged to eat here with friends on a special reunion weekend. Great atmosphere downstairs but our meal upstairs was very disappointing, those who had fish and chips enjoyed it but the steak and Guinness pie was very disappointing. Seemed like poor quality steak and...More

Friendly staff in a lovely old pub. Unfortunately we didn't book so we missed out on sampling what is reputed to be very good food.

Called into the Dining Rooms twice on our weekend visit. Both times excellent food and fabulous and friendly staff. Best to book to be sure you can get in. Irish stew to be recommended especially with the 3 small loaves. We loved the Wheaten bread

I’ve been in the Crown a few times over the years but I’d never been in the ‘Crown Dining Rooms’ upstairs, and I thought I’d give it a shot. It’s a nice looking restaurant, with a pleasant ambience; you can’t say otherwise. The waitress seemed...More

This an olde Irish bar with gas lights and great interior. But don't go there thirsty as, being a popular visitor destination, it's likely to be busy. But enjoy the decor whilst you're waiting to be served.

We popped in here for a few drinks as it has so much heritage and it was very quite on a monday afternoon. The design of it was really nice and you could see the history.

The architecture and attention to detail was amazing. There was a lack of seating no doubt due to popularity but well worthwhile visiting

When you enter, you really feel the history of the place, it's really unique, with its tables closed, like they're private rooms. We stand at the counter (the tables were all full) and we took a glass of wine and a pint of Guinness and...More

As it’s a historical building run by the National Trust I believe. I would recommend just turning up at opening time which is 11am and go in, it was empty when we got there on a Friday. It’s a fabulous place but the food is... More

Yes, it had street access but not sure if there is wheelchair access to the booths. Take her anyway as it’s lovely.
