“Reliably good food”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

The Crown Inn offers an excellent choice of bistro style lunch/dinners, well-cooked and presented with lovely touches like Smarties with your coffee (which wins my heart every time). The staff are attentive and friendly and the owners have worked incredibly hard to bring a comfortable informal dining with unfailing quality and imaginative menus. Having recently had a disastrous dining experience up the road at a neighbouring pub, it just highlights the dependability of the food at The Crown Inn and it is unquestionably the Number 1 pub in the village of Stone.

“Wonderful cooking. Absolutely 'worth the detour'!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

This is the place to go to be certain of an excellent and interesting meal. We have never been disappointed and our expectations are high. The menu is comparatively short, well chosen and varied enough for everyone to find something they would like. The wine list follows the same pattern. Both draw us back regularly out of curiosity to continue to test its quality. Added to the food and drink is the atmosphere and decoration, both of which are low key, warm and welcoming. Try it for yourselves

“Exceptional food”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We've been to lunches and dinners at the Crown a number of times, on our own and with visitors or parties. The food has always been that little bit special, with nice recipes and extra trouble taken, and very well presented.

“We come back”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Here we have real restaurant food, delicious, well served and decorated. The meal was served in a friendly and warm atmosphere, this lunch was a treat in the middle of a busy day.

“Excellent Food and Sevice”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We have been here a couple of times now and have always had a excellent meal with friendly service.

The food is far better than your standard pub....try the peanut butter ice cream or one of their roast dinners!

Dogs are welcome in the bar and we were offered a bowl of water for him in the summer. I was quite surprised they allowed dogs inside as it looked to nice!

There is some outside seating and car parking.

Its about a 45min car journey for us - passing many pubs on the way, but this is definitely one of our favourites and well worth the journey.

I really don't no how anyone can find fault with this pub...it is 10/10!

Will be returning soon!
