Only go here if you are hungry. Good service but the food was a bit over facing. Apparently they will do smaller portions, we saw a notice on the way out.

This pub has a good ambience though we went on a Thursday evening and while It was very busy early on, by 9 p. m. was quite empty. The food is good but the portion control needs attention. Normally that is a sign of small portions but on this occasion the opposite was true. The portions were very large and consequently a bit overwhelming. For instance a prawn cocktail starter was enough for a main course ( for two!). The service was good and friendly. and the price very reasonable. In fact, with the size of the portions one wonders how they can make money.

Visited twice in two days. Lunch was very good, although the pub was busy and we had to wait awhile for our food. Prawn baguettes came with a generous side salad and a small pot of nachos.
Very nice!
Saturday evening with friends for our second visit. It was pretty noisy, as there was a hen night going on, but it all added to the atmosphere. Again, very good food and generous portions. Prawn cocktail starter was huge and the garlic mushrooms were amazing. Steak pie with a puff pastry lid? Couldn't eat it all! Rib eyes also very good.
Service is good and staff all very pleasant and helpful.
Would definitely recommend The Crown. Value for money.

We turned up this weekend with children and dogs in tow and had an enjoyable afternoon. The food was fine with plenty of vegetables offered along with a good Sunday Roast. We were allowed to bring the dog inside and she was also offered a bowl of fresh water under the table. Our daughter had so much fun playing outside in the gardens on the play equipment and feeding the goats, guinea pigs and rabbits. We were lucky with the weather so were able to spend most of our afternoon in the garden while the children spent their energy running around and having lots of fun. The staff were great too and I would definately come here again! If you are looking for an adult friendly, child friendly and dog friendly place, then do pay them a visit!

We turned up for lunch one Thursday without booking and were greeted quickly and warmly. The local apple juice was a nice find, and the food was good, with generous portions (even from the 'menu for smaller appetites').

The garden was pleasant and the children thoroughly enjoyed the play equipment and making a fuss of the small goats in the back.

Everything was reasonably priced, but I have to say the service was extremely slow. The building and surroundings are nice, and would benefit in areas from some freshening up of decor and outdoor planting.

I would definitely go back for relaxed drinks in the garden on a warm afternoon, but if I was very hungry I might be tempted to try somewhere else.
