“Good old fashioned pub grub at a reasonable price.”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

Visited the Crown a couple of times a few weeks ago. Small, typical pub(as well as a hotel). The bar meals were reasonably priced and served quickly. Good choice. Portions ample and 'home cooked'. Staff friendly and ensured all was ok.Enjoyed our first visit so returned..says it all really!

“Tribute to the brewery”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Ate here on a Friday night having previously stayed here many times when it was a privately run hotel. We recognised Joe behind the bar as being a long serving former member of the. Crown. We started by sharing a large portion of delicious whiting followed by two giant portions of Cod and Chips. this was washed down by two beautifully conditioned pints of Tribute from St Austell brewery for me and two halves of Carlsberg for my wife. Altogether around £30 for a very enjoyable pub meal.

“Good food”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

We ate in this bar most evenings and were made very welcome by the locals. We had something different to eat every night, lovely food; my favorite was the seafood pasta dish which was divine.

“Ok for a quick drink”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

This could be a real gem but lacks atmosphere. We had a drink outside on one occasion and inside on another and it was okay but it didn't really feel like somewhere you would spend the whole evening. The Rising Sun in Lynmouth was far better, full of character and characters, great platters of food etc... The Crown had a few locals in swearing about football. If I had children with me I would not consider it a place to go. Sorry Crown
