It seems there are many mixed reviews about this establishment. Sometimes you have to 'read between the lines' and then you'll probably get it about right!
We stayed at a local B & B where the proprietors recommended the Crown Hotel for somewhere to have dinner.
From the varied menu, over 3 nights, we had, lasagne, meat & ale pie, fish & chips, honey roast ham, chicken roast and fish and chips which was requested as being without the batter. The chef offered to poach the haddock for us instead. All the meals were extremely generous in portions. We overheard a french gentlemen order a couple of meals and asked for an extra portion of chips. The landlord told the gentleman the portions were large and that extra chips should not be needed. He then told the gentleman that once the meal arrived if they still wanted extra chips they would get them.
Yes there are many notices about the place but sometimes people take liberties if they are not told.
We engaged the landlord in conversation of several occasions and always found him to be polite and informed. He is a local man and has lived in the village all his life so yes he's a Yorkshireman. Sometimes you just need to understand their ways! (I'm a southerner who has lived in Yorkshire for 30 years).
The hours for serving food was not an issue for us. However, with the last orders for meals being 8.30 it does make it difficult for some walkers who don't quite make it in time.
