Description: The Old Punch Bowl is situated on the High Street in Crawley, just a couple of minutes from the main shopping centre. We offer great service and a menu with a wide range of quality traditional pub food all served from 11am.

The Old Punch Bowl is brilliant place to meet up with friends and enjoy excellent food and a fun and welcoming pub atmosphere at all times.

Reviewed 20 April 2014

Food and drink has been good in fact the "Stoop" is excellent,also the meal deals.
The thing that lets the Punch Bowl down is the cleanliness.The upholstered seats are stained and should be thrown out they look disgusting,also the toilets leave a lot to be desired especially in the evenings,when there is no toilet paper left and the floors are not clean,and my partner tells me the stench is over powering in the gents toilet.

“Ok not brilliant”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Went here for lunch had a wrap and a glass of wine for £5.99. So the price was ok, the wrap wasn't the best that I've had. The service when we went in was fairly good but when we went back for another drink we had to wait a bit of time as they only had 1 member of staff on at that time. Not sure id go back for food but the pub was warm and well lit so that was nice.

Typical pub grub average price and not bad food but wouldn't say that I would especially suggest or recommend it.
