“Proper village pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

We were staying at Riverside Caravan Park a mile outside Stratford and the Crown is a five minute walk from the end of the drive. They were chock-a-block with a group event, but made every effort to fit us in for a meal - and we were not disappointed. All our party were very pleased with their meals - particularly the excellent chips and wonderful steak. (Apparently all the meat is supplied by Barry's, a traditional butcher in the centre of Stratford.) Good range of real ales - we drank the Purity Mad Goose dry. But this is also a proper family run local pub with friendly helpful staff and locals. Pool table, tv, juke box and darts room as well as a bar area and dining area. Well worth a visit.

“Lovely village pub:o)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

A friendly pub with great staff and service, very clean and tidy with a great selection of food and drink. A little expensive but newer furnishing could justify that in future... all in all thumbs up!!

“Go if nowhere else open”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

This is local for us which is a pity because it isn't great!
Food greasy and not hot enough.
Inside the pub needs a good clean and is poorly laid out.
It could be fab as only pub in village but it is tired and sad I am afraid.

“Lovely food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

We had a lovely meal outside in the beer gain is afternoon. The meals were beautifully presented and very tasty (3 x burgers, 1 x lasagne, 1 x child's pasta). The service was good and it was refreshing to see a children's menu that wasn't dominated by deep fried processed meat with chips. Although the child meal was tasty, at £5.00 it was a little pricey, the sauce was a bit too runny and it was tagliatelle which was difficult for my toddler to negotiate! I can't understand why they weren't busier, it really was better than average pub grub in nice surroundings and I look forward to a future visit.
