“Watch the language”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Food & staff acceptable. Language used by customers drinking at the bar totally unacceptable & staff did not pull them up on their bad language, don't care if one of them was a so called local celebrity shouldn't be allowed . Unlikely to return

“A relaxing lunchtime visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We popped in here after doing some shopping in Egham. It is very attractive from the outside with beautiful hanging baskets. and comfortable chairs and tables. The inside is also very pleasant , obviously having been recently refurbished. Also the staff were very friendly and helpful and as it was quite quiet ,stood and chatted with us. We had a seafood platter to share - excellent !, There was a good selection of ales to chose from.

“Good food and some great day-time deals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We visited this pub as it is the nearest one to our new office. The staff were really friendly and the outside area at the front is done really nicely. The Spanish burger that I had was one of the best I've had in a long time.
Some things on the menu are quite expensive but there are plenty of deals on during the day if you want a quick, cheaper bite to eat at a lunchtime.

“Love the New Crown, but AVOID the New Manager”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My husband and I have been coming to the Crown for the last two years. During this time, we have always enjoyed the friendly and efficient staff, selection of food and beverages. On Sunday, we popped in for a beer, with the main purpose of seeing what the Refurbished Crown looks like. It does look much better. There is more seating inside and outside with a light and welcoming ambiance. Unfortunately, we were served by the new (presumably) manager.

His demeanor was not that of the general welcoming Crown staff, but that off an impatient and intolerable bouncer. We attempted to make some kind of small talk, which was not reciprocated in any way or form. Knowing that the team and owner (in our experience) have never been this way, we concluded that this new hire might be a miss-match.

We would recommend The Crown for a relaxing afternoon out, but avoid the new hire to ensure a pleasurable experience.
