“Great food, disappointing room”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Stayed over en route from Gatwick. Absolutely charming old building, great food. Room, however, we thought was much overpriced and just about adequate. Very dated and cheap décor, and quite disappointing.

I was one of a party of eight who enjoyed a memorable re-union lunch at the beautiful Crown yesterday. I couldn't fault it in any way. The food was delicious, plenty of choice and attractively presented. The staff were friendly and very efficient. We already have plans to book for our annual Christmas re-union!

I took my partner away for her birthday and stayed in the King Suite. The suite was great, well equipped and very comfortable. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return. The Inn is amazing with more character than you could imagine. The wood panelled dining room is stunning, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the food was lovely. The staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had the added bonus of beautiful weather so could enjoy the Al fresco drinking areas and timed it well to be able to enjoy the Village fete on the green outside.

Room Tip: choose one of the four poster bed rooms for the authentic experience.

We stayed over the bank holiday weekend and were a little worried when we saw how busy it was, but needn't have worried, it was a lovely stay. The inn itself is stunning and the staff very friendly and the whole place had a great atmosphere. Although some things had run out because they had been so busy, dinner was excellent and the chicken dish I had was divine. Breakfast was equally as impressive with a choice from the buffet followed by a hearty cooked breakfast. Locals were dropping in for coffees and breakfast with one lady running around looking after all of us.
All in all, a great stay and we will definitely be back.

We spent 1 night in The Crown Inn and it was lovely. The pub is great, the room was cozy with a comfortable bed and nice bathtub, the staff were friendly and the food was good. Would definitely stay here again.

Chiddingfold itself is a bit sleepy and doesn't offer much in the way of things to do but it is a quaint little village in a very pretty part of England.

The essence of a traditional English village and central to it, this Chiddingfold Inn has the charm of an old pub, and a perfect location, a natural stopping-off point between London and the south. The service provided by the young woman very early Sunday morning was exceptional - breakfast, check-out, office help, running the place.

Room Tip: The four poster is nice

My stay here was a very welcome and pleasant experience! What a nice place, great staff, good food with very clean and comfortable bedrooms and a lovely big bath! The wine list was good with sensible prices. The menu catered for everyone's taste although the venison was not available when I stayed. I was there with 2 colleagues for a business meeting in the evening which went on until midnight and carried on over breakfast the next morning - the staff were great and left us alone unless we wanted to order. We have decided to book here for our quarterly meetings rather than go to the rather over-rated hotels in Guildford which we had been using. The only point worth mentioning is the noise from the traffic which starts at 5.45am. This place deserves to be highly recommended!

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask if they have rooms at the back of the hotel ( I forgot to check this...
