“Lovely food but too cold to enjoy it,”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

We ( 5 women) could not fault our lunches but were just too cold in the restaurant to enjoy the food and decided we could not stay for a dessert however nice they looked. We moved tables when we arrived because of the draught from the door but not much improvement, especially when the single inefficient radiator was obviously turned off while we were eating. Suggested to the management that an electric radiator would be a simple and inexpensive solution but this was dismissed without apology and the comment that no-one else has complained. I have since talked to several people who have had the same problem so find this hard to believe.Very sad as it's a lovely pub in summer.I am posting this relunctantly as I have not had the courtesy of a reply to my e-mail sent following our meal.

“Varied and interesting menu, good value for money.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

The Crown offers a varied and interesting menu, providing restaurant quality food at a good price. This is not pub grub, but is set in a good old fashioned country pub atmosphere. Well worth a drive to for a good meal.

“Lovely staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2011

This is my 3rd time of eating here and i feel i have to write a review to express how good the food and staff are. This i believe is a family run pub, the owners and staff are extremmely welcoming as are the locals!! We always opt to sit in the restaurant area as its abit more quiet then the pub area. Best to ring ahead and book a table as it can be full!
