My first visit to the Crown and Kitchen, whilst staying with family in Dunbar. A reasonable menu, with good welcome, and friendly prompt service. Enjoyed prawn cocktail, and steak salad. Plenty of both. Wine list limited, but fair value. Likewise, our overall experience.

Very busy place but very attentive friendly staff. Quite a small menu with no real starters, portions are a little on the small side but everything was tasty. Quite warm as there were a lot of people dining and very noisy. Overall a nice meal.
