Was cycling past and hunger drew us in on a sunny bank holiday Monday.
The sandwiches are great value and have generous portions of prawns / smoked salmon - We could barely get back on our bikes!
Staff were very friendly and kept our bikes in the function room so they would be safe while we ate indoors (outside was full).
Will definitely be back to try more dishes here soon. They keep very good opening hours too.

Food is amazing and without fault every time! Presentation great and all waiting and bar staff are lovely and give you the warmest of welcomes. Nothing is ever too much for them.

Food okay but overall The Crown Inn lacks a little care and attention. We ordered from the 2 for £12, this is shown as 2 for £11 on the website. One of us had bacon, fries, bearnaise sauce and rocket which was fine. The other had mini fish, fries, tartar sauce, no peas or salad. I thought this was a bit odd. Having checked the online menu just now (which differs from the one on the wall inside the pub) there should have been peas too which should have been easily spotted by the waiting staff, having been already missed by the kitchen staff. I wish now I’d rechecked the menu at the time as I did miss having a veg element. There was a good range of deserts which came well presented and tasted lovely, however these are served on a plate so a desert fork would have been really handy, a simple detail missing and not a big stretch to provide this. We would go back for another meal as the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The main menu looks okay but is quite limited, we could not take any of our vegetarian or vegan friends with us as the token veg dishes are poor options. I wish I could rate this place higher but based on the above, I did leave feeling a bit disappointed, given the hype and local advertising.

Thank you for pointing out the price error on the website, this has now been corrected.

As for the menu content, the website does point out "Sample regular menus can be found below." and goes on to say "... we can’t guarantee the menu on offer on any particular day will exactly match what you see shown here on the webpage."

Basically the special offers are affected by availability and seasonality so it's impractical to keep the website updated on a daily basis I'm afraid.

We do appreciate and understand your comments on the vegetarian offerings but unfortunately we get so few requests for vegetarian meals in this area that we just can't have more options without having to throw away excessive amounts of unused food that has gone out of date. We would like to do more but don't have the demand.

Dissapointed with with what should have been a pleasant evening out. Food overcooked and the waitress was very apologetic when it was returned to the kitchen. When it came back to the table my other half had finished his meal and it tasted like the steak had been cooked in a deep fat fryer!! Not great for a first experience and will sadly not be returning!

We're really sorry you were disappointed. The server should have offered to take both meals back while your steak was being recooked and we've brought this to the attention of the staff.

Stopped here once just for a drink and wanted to return as had a lovely bar and a friendly atmosphere . Unfortunately the food was just ok, nothing special, no presentation but if you are looking for good old fashioned pub grub you won’t be disappointed just not for me. But would definitely return for a drink to the lovely bar and welcoming staff . Thank you guys
