Dropped by The Crown today for a quick late lunch. We were greeted very warmly and advised of the specials. Everything sounded delicious. In the interest of time we chose a duck and hoisin wrap. It was served with delicious thin fries and a little green salad. Just what we wanted. We will be back very soon!

We had eaten here a couple of years ago when we lived in shrivenham, and decided to come back for our wedding anniversary. The restaurant has a slightly quirky layout which is part of its charm, however it can still suit couples as well as small groups. The menu along with the special board is very comprehensive with a good choice of starters, mains and sweets.
The service was excellent, with three staff who were attentive when we needed something but not intrusive which was ideal.
The food was of a very good quality and even thought the restaurant was full the gaps between courses was about 15~20 mins which is exactly as we like it
So don't take my word for it give it a try, you won't be disappointed

Having been unable to get a table in our usual restaurant, we drove into nearby Shrivenham to see if we could find somewhere else to get a Sunday lunch and happened upon this little gem.

There was plenty of choice on the menu; as well as the Sunday carvery (today it was lamb or beef) there was a wide choice of other options, including some vegetarian. The food arrived in good time, was plentiful and delicious.

The very warm welcome and friendly service, together with a very tasty home-cooked meal, made for a most pleasant dining experience. In fact, significantly more pleasant than the place we usually eat in! We will definitely be back!
