We dropped by for lunch a couple of weekends ago and although busy found the staff helpful and polite, we were told there was a small wait for the food which was to be expected but it in fact came out quicker than expected and was excellent. Would recommend for anyone wanting a great meal in a traditional English pub.... More

We were travelling in the area for 2 days and came across this pub for lunch - to be told (not politely informed) there would be a lengthy delay before there was an opportunity to even place a lunch order. In other words - we don't want your custom!.

Arrived with 13 friends on a bike tour to be greeted with a rather hostile 'it'll be 30 minutes until you can have a menu". Even if there were mitigating circumstances a more friendly welcome would've prevented us deciding to cycle on to the next village. I'm amazed that this pub is so successful it can turn down £200+ worth... More

Or so it seemed. Had taken a wrong turn at the top of the hill and was looking for somewhere to turn around on a long windy down hill road and found this great pub/restaurant. Very friendly staff and had a wonderful lunch of the salmon and cod fishcakes (starter) but served as a main. Really delicious. Staff very friendly... More

Revisited recently after a long cycle up the hill from Turville and had a very nice Sunday lunch and local ale. Nice, laid back staff doing their jobs properly. More of a dining terrace than a beer garden - the pub is in the middle of nowhere with a simple (but odd) view of field and woods. It's a little... More

On our way to Stonor Park and saw this splendid building, went inside for Sunday Lunch and the food and service were equally splendid. Opted for main courses and desserts and, speaking for myself, the roast beef and the sticky toffee pudding were excellent. The service is slick and pleasant and we will make an effort to visit shortly.

Nice location we visited for Sunday lunch - the place was moderately busy but we were told to take a seat and there would be a delay until they would take an order (!!) presumably to level out service as the kitchen was temporarily closed. We were clearly incovenient !! t We stuck with it and the food was good,... More

I'm not a big lover of sunday roasts at pubs, but with a visitor staying recently we gave it a go. My, what lovely food! A bit dark inside on a summer's day but it's veyr old, with beams etc. So sit outside in the summer, enjoy the fire in the winter. Very nice lunch, thanks.

I was bridesmaid for a wedding held at The Crown and stayed in their self-catering cottage. The wedding was a success- the barn was beautiful (though a little stuffy in the heat) and the staff were friendly and helpful. The garden areas (front and back) are both lovely and great for photos. I'd definitely recommend it for a wedding venue.... More

The crown has been a favourite of mine for many years. We went for Saturday lunch, my starter consisted of 4 prawns that were over cooked and rubbery, it equated to over £1.50 each prawn! My main was a salad, again the portion was small, the chargrilled chicken could easily have come straight out of a supermarket packet. My partner... More
