“Night out with friends”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We dined here Mid week, quite a few tables in the bar area were taken, we were offered a table in the bar which was fine, for the starter most of our party had bruchetta which was very nice, my main course choice was Sirloin Steak which was cooked to my liking, average vegetables, the dessert was very disappointing rhubarb and custard creme brulee which was not set. Very nice staff.

“Good Food in Kirkoswald”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Recently ate at this restaurant in Kirkoswald and have to say the food and service was excellent. My starter was probably the best I have ever had in an establishment of this type. Will definitely visit again on our next trip to the area.

“What a fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

My husband and I visited here the weekend of 23-26th May 2014. What a hidden gem!! The food was excellent, served piping hot. The staff were friendly and attentive. The landlord, Tony is the chef and comes out into the bar after cooking to speak to the customers. What a superb place......I can highly recommend it.......we will certainly be back. This is a really popular place and its advisable to book.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

The food was delicious and plentiful. I had three meals (and plenty of real ale) at the Crown as well as puddings and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and flavours that I experienced.

“Lucky locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Excellent food, attentive and keen staff. Josie behind the bar is especially switched on and your glass is replenished as if by magic! As locals we are lucky to have such a great pub in our village. Suggest book to avoid disappointment.
