Description: Excellent food at this restaurant, freshly cooked and really tasty. There are a number of real ales on offer, along with some nice wines. Very good value for money, more expensive than your standard pub grub, but then the food is well above average! Checked out the lunch and Sunday menu's which also looked great. Will definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone.

Just read previous review and they must be talking about a totally different pub. We have ate at the crown many many times, and the food has always been excellent with always a good choice. The service is first class and always friendly. It is great that there is a friendly pub in the heart of the village that serves good food, good beer and
has a good atmosphere with friendly staff and owners.

We were not exactly spoilt for choice but having read a few reviews arrived at The Crown Inn on a busy Friday evening, although most patrons were at the bar rather than dining.
We should have read warning signs when we waited more than 10 minutes to be greeted and seated! The waitresses seemed busy, task focussed (I prefer people-oriented service) but unproductive, one waitress said she had been on since noon and she was still there at nearly 10pm. The other seemed just as jaded.
We waited more than an hour and a half for our food, as did other diners, we were just told they were very busy. The tables were a little sticky despite a re-wipe and we were never offered further drinks after our initial order.
When the food came it was all very tasteless and dripping with grease, the 'hand cut' chips were small wedges that looked like Bessie's rejects that had been sat on a hot plate too long. Nothing tasted fresh and the food generally lacked any form of presentation. My hubby had to ask twice for sauces and a steak knife that should have come with his meal. It felt like the waitresses struggled with any form of eye contact ... perhaps in case they were asked for something, or fear complaints.
The Crown Inn needs some local competition, to make it pull it's socks up properly. It feels like basics are being overlooked, rather than a different menu each night, they need quality kitchen staff and customer oriented skills.
Next time I would travel a little further afield to ensure a better experience for the price.

This pub has been given a new lease of life by the current, very experienced licensees. The Crown is now back at the heart of the community and is attracting new customers every week. From the outside, it now looks clean, bright and very inviting and there are no disappointments once inside.
Plenty of comfortable seating, a great selection of guest beers and a blackboard menu of really tasty sandwiches. You can eat in the main bar area, but the conservatory-style restaurant is very attractive and offers a different experience. There's plenty of tasty dishes to choose from, and everything is well cooked and beautifully presented by the young chef. It's really good value too.

It's great to see this place doing so well - the Crown really is a traditional English pub at its very best!

Third visit in the last couple of months, great to see the owners are settled in, this pub has changed hands so often. Outside has been given a lick of paint, looks great. Food is good, beer is good.

We called in today for Sunday lunch. The welcome was warm, the choice of beers extensive. The lunch was excellent and just the right level of service. The message about the Crown seems to be getting round as it was really busy when we left.
