Pleasant helpful staff who provided a taxi list & reasonable bar prices, not a large bar area but 4 or 5 small snug areas, everyone seems to know everyone else being a small knit community, food is apparently...

Room was booked for a function! Table covering were dirty on arrival, food came out at all different times and some cold! Staff accused guests of not paying when they had, argued with a heavily pregnant woman for money!

The food in general was good, although my husband got a burnt gammon steak. The ambiance of the place is lacking - cutlery incorrectly set, - staff could have been better - the door was wedged open and we were frozen, and had to keep our coats on. We would not recommend it unless they go that extra mile and... More

My wife and I went to the Crown on the advice of a taxi driver, whose advice was very sound! We had 2 courses, starter and main; we couldn't have managed a third as the portions were huge. My wife's starter was the haggis, neeps and tatties 'stack' which may be the best option; she rated it delicious; my starts... More
