We went to The Crown for dinner with two friends. It's not possible to book a table but as it was Thursday evening, although all tables were in use, we didn't have to wait too long for one to become available. We all ordered the sirloin steak which arrived with lovely chips, onion rings, mushroom, tomato and a dish of... More

Three of us called for lunch and whilst it was Wednesday it was quite busy, a positive sign. We all decided on the specials (2 × cod, chips and peas 1 x plaice chips and peas). It was all delicious, nicely cooked and very fresh. Lovely and to be recommended.

We've eaten here a few times. I like to come here when we want something fairly simple (we usually go for Scampi & Chips) and quick. It can be quite busy but we've always been able to get a table and the food doesn't take ages like some places. The desserts are particularly yummy. Our favourite is the waffle with... More

Fantastic fantastic fantastic food and service. Well done all the... More

Old fashioned pub with lovely roaring fire, however, the tables are packed in extremely close! Staff were attentive, polite and welcoming though, for us, the food was nothing more than average. No starters on the menu, lots of main meals - possibly too many rather than a couple of specials that are changeable. Pork medallions were tender, however, the sauce... More

We have visited the crown on numerous occasions and it never fails to impress. It is quality pub food in a traditional pub. Sometimes the wait for the food is a little long but well worth it. The staff are so welcoming and the open fires are lovely. I can certainly recommend visiting the crown!

Thank comebackjack
