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.

Back again to this fabulous restaurant last Thursday (16th) this time as a family. As ever, it was busy but as usual the service and food was spot on. The Guinness was off - that’s my only criticism, but an alternative was found which was frankly, even better. Who knew? I almost didn’t post this review as if too many people get wind of how good it is we will never get a table, but it’s so fabulous I had to. Simply the best for miles around. Love it.

What a lovely , friendly, well priced restaurant. Food was delicious. Out door cinema was great also. Even had a good chat with the owners and mark was lovely and gave us free earphones to watch the film and my partner a blanket to keep warm. Absolutely loved the place and will def go back again and again

Quite simply fantastic. The best destination we have found since moving to the area two months ago. The wood fired pizza was absolute top notch. The outdoor cinema was setting up and the atmosphere was superb. The village setting is another major part of the experience of visiting this truly exceptional venue. Take a few minutes to wander around the church grounds, you won’t be disappointed.

This is not our first visit so we knew we were at the right place for an excellent family lunch. Right from phone call from Mark confirming our booking to the friendly welcome by Mark and his team on our arrival we were made to feel special. That continued with an excellent menu choice, and a very good selection for those of us with dietary challenges. The puddings were, as ever, totally divine especially the Panna Cotta, the Chocolate Brownies and the Banoffee Pie, perhaps we should have tried the excellent lemon meringue ice cream, but we really didn’t have room for anything else! Wonderful leisurely meal. The whole team at the Crown definitely ensured that we had a lovely relaxed lunch experience with friends. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

This is one of my favourite spots to meet friends for lunch. The atmosphere is always welcoming and friendly, Mark and the front of house team are attentive without being intrusive. The food is consistently excellent, with fabulous menu choices. Bravo Cherrie and fellow chefs!

Disinterested staff, poor service, substandard food and portion size, overpriced for what you get. The staff don’t talk to you because they are all about 15 yr old and don’t know anything about customer service. Had to wait 15 minutes to pay the bill but some guy skipped ahead of us in the queue. It took forever for the young man to input all the orders into the billl creating system. The sticky chocolate pudding was dry chocolate cake with sauce. Ran out of many things, even the information on the specials board was not correct. A bit of humility and getting some camaraderie with diners goes a long way. And the guy with the waist coat was as dull as dishwater. Barman needs to learn to wash the glasses

From the friendly greeting to the last spoonful of blackcurrant and elderflower meringue mess, this was a lovely lunch experience. It is particularly pleasing to see dietary restricted customers offered the same high standard of menu choices as more 'normal' folk. Seriously good quality food cooked with skill and presented with style. Well done. We'll be back.

I love this place. Been several times over the years, but not for about 12 months. It’s still smashing. The food is wonderful and they keep a nice pint. My wife had the “market fish” tonight and said it was easily as good as a similar dish she’d had in London at The Landau a while back. That’s a Michel Roux Jnr place. Praise indeed. The menu is sensible, straightforward, and will suit all tastes and requirements. The young waiting staff are brilliant. Polite, cheerful, personable and helpful. The owner treats everyone like they’re old friends. It’s a lovely, cosy little place and every time I’ve been in it’s been packed. It’s the best place for miles round here.

9 people of the family, age 64 down to 2. Got us on a lovely table, loads of space. No rushing us, but we had to wait for nothing! Staff always available when you needed everything. Food was perfect, portions just right, no one went hungry! Deserts were a delight! Decently priced. Will really go again, just the wife and myself next time. A delight to write a review for a faultless venue! Thanks for a great time!

This is a great place for a relaxed, high quality meal. The staff are lovely and were able to accommodate us ( even though I had booked for fewer people than we needed) they were great with our nervous dog and the good was top draw. Highly recommended.

I found this pub on trip advisor and decided to book a table following the great reviews. It did not disappoint. The staff were all welcoming, allowing dogs in the bar area too. The menu had a fantastic selection, including very tasty vegetarian and vegan meals. Overall a smashing place for lunch or dinner. We will definitley come again. Thank you all for a wonderful lunch.
