“Somewhat disappointed”

After travelling for 5 hours to get to our accommodation at Tiddington, we just wanted to relax and have some food so opted for The Crown as we had never been there before. It was rather busy as there was a football match on the television so we sat in the rear dining area for peace and quiet. After being told we could sit back there by the bar staff, the waiter made a small fuss about his tables being reserved but not to worry he would 'sort it out'. I couldn't see the problem as it was 3/4 empty and wasn't even half full by the time we left. This annoyed my other half straight away. We ordered our food however when it arrived the garlic bread was cold. We mentioned this to the waiter who told the chef but then he had to come back to get the garlic bread as proof because the chef didn't believe us! Another annoyance for husband. New garlic bread arrived which was much better. When we asked for the bill we were given the wrong one which again, annoyed husband. We didn't visit again during our stay but that is not to say we wouldn't visit again, perhaps on a quieter evening with a table in the front of the pub.

We considered this our 'local' when we were staying in Tiddington recently. It is a very friendly pub just a short walk from our hotel, and we popped in a couple of times for drinks. The only downside was the smell of paint, but if they are in the process of re-decorating, that can only be a good thing.

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.

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!!
