We recently stayed (family of mum, dad, son and daughter of 8 & 2) in a cottage up the road from the Crown and slightly worried about heading in due to external appearance however liking a beer we did and so pleased we did.
A great local pub with local characters and the staff were nothing but overly welcoming. Cas, who runs the bar, was the most welcoming bar man I have experienced with strangers in a distant location, exactly what a pub shoul be.
The pub inside is absolutely georgeous and we were there for Halloween for which they had made a real effort with spooky decorations which was brilliant with the kids.
We had a few meals there and I must say it was all incredibly nice and freshly made and the ribs on a Thursday are the bet I have tasted in a long time.
If you can accept a local pub for what it should be and be friendly to staff as opposed to expecting to be served upon then you will love it.
Be friendly and that is what you get back.
Oh and don't be put off by the exterior, the joy is finding these places and taking part.
