All very average. Scallops the smallest I think I've seen and waited almost 50 minutes for starter. Main was Halibut which seemed like it had been kept under warmer for a while as it was dry. Dessert was good. Cheeseboard.... No grapes! No celery! Wonder why they would sell you a dish when it doesn't actually contain what the menu... More

We walked in off the street and were lucky to get the only table free in this cosy pub. One half is the restaurant which seats just 14 people, the other half is a lively but pleasant bar area. And what a discovery it was. The barmaid and waitress were very welcoming, very efficient and, if I may say so,... More

Attended an event in their upstairs function room. Food had to be preordered which is normal for such things and when it arrived, each course was excellent. The Duck Pate was delicious but unfortunately the appearance gave the impression of having been tipped out of a can with the orange sauce sitting on top like a inedible jelly. My wife... More

Lovely building tucked away in Stony Stratford. Well maintained and nice decor inside. Food was good, service friendly and not too fast/slow. Generally felt welcomed and valued.

Under new management in 2016! The origins of The Crown of Stony Stratford can be traced back to 1664 in the midst of a very vibrant coaching trade in the town. There were at its height in the early 1800's no less than around 50 inns and coach houses in Stony Stratford with 50 coaches passing through the town on a daily basis. Just over 350 years later from when The Crown was originally built in the market square, the building has undergone a sympathetic renovation to the original of the coach house with a modern flair. Although there are no horses to tether, there is extensive parking at the front of the building. The management of the Crown would like extend a warm welcome to all the people of Stony Stratford who have wished us well with this venture. On a personal note, the Executive Chef and Director of this venture, Kabelo promises a culinary experience which would be second to none and his team will ensure a very personal service on your visit. Our week starts on a Tuesday through to Sunday offering a selected range of an ever changing seasonal menu. Most of our ingredients will be sourced locally as we are committed to cutting down on carbon food miles. There will be a few surprises in store to reflect the Executive Chef's vast repertoire of delectable delights. A warm welcome awaits you all at the Crown in Stony Stratford
