“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

We recently celebrated a family birthday at The Crown after hearing such good reviews, and wasn't disappointed. A downfall of snow had prevented it from being as full as it normally would be on a Saturday evening, but the service and atmosphere was nevertheless faultless. Nothing was too much trouble, any requests were dealt with promptly, the staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was amazing (although the vegetarian options could be more imaginative, as I wasn't prepared to pay £15 for macaroni cheese!). Set on a beautiful village green, summer visitors would be well and truly spoilt, and could keep the all-weather regulars company! Also noticed that it has a function room and is licenced for weddings, with luxury accommodation upstairs. Will definitely be visiting again and again.

“Superb locally sourced food”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

We were on our way back from a weekend in Newcastle and looking for a lunch stop not too far off the A1. We always carry a copy of The Good Pub Guide for such occasions and found The Crown before setting off, so phoned and made a reservation. We arrived early but we ordered a drink and studied the menu and our table was prepared. We both opted for the two course (main and dessert) lunch at £16.95. Complimentary warm pine nut bread set the standard for what was to follow. The lamb and the pork were cooked to perfection and accompanied by cauliflower, carrots, and fine beans, all with a slight crunch, unlike some cheaper Sunday lunches when the vegetables can be cooked in advance and kept warm. Roast potatoes and mash were also perfect. We both agreed that this was one of the best pub meals we have had in a long time.
My partner was feeling quite full by this stage so chose Sorbet for dessert whilst I was slightly more ambitious and went for Sticky Toffee Pudding. Again quality and presentation were both excellent. Everything about The Crown oozes quality. The staff are all well trained and attentive without being overbearing.
This is definitely more a food pub than a drinkers pub but they do serve some well kept real ales eg Timothy Taylor Landlord.
if you are in the area or even just passing, as we were, treat yourself to a meal at The Crown, you won't regret it!

“Really tasty and lovely staff”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

We visited the crown inn for a 3 course dinner as we had a smartbox voucher as a wedding present that got us a free meal.

We really enjoyed eating at the crown inn, the food was very tasty and was high quality at a lower price that you would normally pay for such nice grub!

The staff were also really friendly and kind and polite.

The decoration and atmosphere is relaxed but elegant and the building has a wonderful historical feel. Parking is ample and the local area is nice for a wander round.

We would definately go again even without the voucher.

“Lovely country pub for delicious lunch”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Beautiful food in an utterly relaxed setting - the owners have added lots of little quirky touches like the model pair seated outside with the daily paper. Crab soup is to die for. Definitely a place to go back to.
