“evening at the crown”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

We stayed in bathford and this was the nearest pub for an evening meal, and had looked at the reviews before our visit and they were the main reasons for choosing it. The young girl behind the bar was very friendly and welcoming. We ordered our meal and all had the puff pastry beef pie and mash.we had to order veg separately at £3.50 it did serve 3 but bit miffed meal didnt come with veg ! My partner asked if he could have chips instead of mash, yes thats ok .(it states on the menu 25 mins for the pie ) so we were expecting to wait a while but it took nearly an hour and when it came we all had mash no chips ! Waited too long already to get it changed.we thought was very over priced for what it was . we were going to have a dessert but over £6 for an eton mess is a little steep ,so we didnt bother,

“Delightful Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We first went in on Friday afternoon out of convenience as it was the only place open, We were met by a charming young lady who made us more than welcome. We ended up having a baguette and a few more drinks as we felt comfortable. On Saturday we overran and tried the Crown at approximately 9 pm thinking we were too late for food. Too our delight the full menu was still available and I chose my favourite of Steak n Ale pie. I have too say this was the best ever and I can't compliment the chef enough. My wife had an omelette and overall we would firmly recommend this unique pub.

“Good food - recommend the Moules!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Whilst staying the area, it was one closest places which was open on a Sunday night. We arrived as the Sunday special menus were being removed from the tables, however there was a fixed price menu or their regular menu still available.

When I find Moules Frites on the menu, that's my mind made up! It was good - a pot of lovely big mussels served in the usual way steamed with wine and garlic, which was accompanied by a dish of french fries. The bar had a good selection of cask ales available.

The place was a little too quiet, as it was pretty empty on Sunday night - however the staff were friendly and the service was attentive.

“Only lunchtime snack, okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Guess the best parts of our lunchtime visit was the ham salad baguette and the log fire. Only Doom Bar real ale was available, first pint was nearly returned, certainly not a great pint. Had a side order of chips, they were the thin fries sort, okay rather than great as far as I am concerned. For a lunchtime snack the baguette and chips at £7.75 is not cheap.
The most off putting thing was that whilst eating some cleaning was started and there was a very strong smell of bleach, not appetising. You also need to be dog friendly as there were three very large dogs who came to the table looking for food. Again the smell of dog was not an appetiser.

“Whatever you pay her ..double it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

We are local ladies who lunch often!
The last three times we have been to the Crown.The colourful young lady who served us made the experiences very good and is the main reason for our return. The food is very good as well...particularly the fish and chips and home made tartare sauce.
Back to the service...cheerful , thoughtful and friendly......great to be looked after by an intelligent young person...she is the reason we return.
