Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a really great night here. They were very busy but made us feel welcome, we booked on the night so they squeezed us in which was very appreciated. The food was amazing and they have a lovely IPA on tap as well. You need...to go with an empty stomach as the original burger and chips is so delicious but there's so much it was a struggle to finish. Service was a-class as well.More

Can't believe all the good reviews!! After 40 minutes waiting my husband asked if the food was ready soon, he was told the wait would be worth it is so good. When it arrived the waitress was not too happy with us for asking, she...was very abrupt. The fish was very greasy, the batter inside undercooked. The burger ordered was just a lump of insipid mince and the pulled pork was chewy. When I wanted to pay, the waitress was talking with customers at the be bar,she ignored us and walked away to serve other customers. Good was average, service and attitude bad, will not visit again.More

We stumbled across this little gem while waiting to check into our Airbnb just down the road. Staff were so friendly and welcoming that we decided to book in the day after for a meal and we were not disappointed! Quirky interior, great vegetarian options...and really reasonably priced. We’ll definitely return if we come back to this part of the world. Made a wonderful stay even lovelier!More

Crown Inn hosted our sons christening party. The hog roast was brilliant, gluten free and vegetarian options were also provided. The staff were extremely helpful. The whole party went very smoothly and lots of fun had by all. Thank you!

During our holiday we visited the Crown Inn for a meal. It was very chilled and laid back with a friendly welcome. The burgers are absolutely huge - a little bit too big really - but amazing value for money and well presented. My burger...was under seasoned but the flavour around it made up for that. All burgers are seasoned individually to compliment the accompaniments to it. Huge bowls of sharing fries which is a nice touch and good variety of sauces if travelling with teens! Extremely accommodating and friendly pub, looks like it has been recently revamped and decorated and is stylish and fresh. Dog friendly Would revisit - but be very hungry !!More

Booked a table. When we arrived someone was sitting at it! Given another table which was fine but told at least an hour before we could eat! Why take a booking when you can't deliver. Very shabby service. Not impressed.

Don't go to this pub if you are hungry & want to eat anytime soon. Arrived about 7.15 and finally ate at 8.45 having ordered 2 starters & 1 burger. As visitors to the area it appeared that we were bottom of the pile. To...cap it all they didn't listen to the order & the burger came plastered in relish despite specifically asking for no relish. Had ordered starters intending to have a pudding after but really didn't want to stay up that late!More

I am a pescatarian. I was surprised that out of maybe 8 burger options two were non-meaty burgers. The halloumi burger I chose was fresh, everything was fresh, and it tasted absolutely fabulous. The fries were perfectly crisp, not an iota soggy or limp. Everything...was just excellent. If burgers ever again, then at the Crown Inn!More

A nice welcome, a log burning fire and good food - what else do you need? Not a lot! This is an old country pub that is a ways out of Carlisle, so don't think it's walkable from the the city centre. That said, it's...not far by car and a Taxi wouldn't break the bank if you chose to enjoy the bar as well as the restaurant. It's worth a jolly out and is sited near to some great woodland trails if rambling is your thing. One thing I will say, it felt cold in the restaurant section due to the time of the year and due to the building's construction - the radiators were on full blast, but sadly didn't cope. However, in the warmer months this would not matter at all.More
