Great food and great beer - their Sunday lunch is fantastic, probably one of the best in the area! The refurb has been done to a very high standard, very comfortable & relaxing atmosphere. We popped in here for a 'late' drink on Saturday (around 9pm) and was pleasantly surprised to see a live band playing , beats the nightclub any day!! Good choice on the menu, staff friendly, and the beer is great!

Me and some friends visited The Crown earlier this month and were a little concerned to begin with as our expectations were not high based on their terrible club nights. As a restaurant, however The Crown works so much better. Staff were friendly, helpful and wanted to deliver a high quality service. Food was of a high standard with a good menu. Good food at a good price in Devizes in a clean, friendly, modern atmosphere. Will definitely be visiting again. If you want to just go out for a meal and it's not a special occasion this is THE place to go in Devizes.

Stuck with somewhere to eat last night so we plumbed for The Crown Devizes. Have had many a good meal here in the past. The place has had a fantastic makeover. A flagship pub for local brewer Wadworth. In the large rear room that doubles as a nightclub there is a great wallpaper map of Devizes town , very impressive. Now to the food. We were the only people in as it was quite early. My wife had shredded duck salad with noodles, a superb meal and good portion, very tasty, fresh and appetising, cost I think was 8.95. I had ham egg n chips and what a plateful. Good proper handcut ham, two eggs, possibly ducks eggs, great chips, cost of that was 10.95. Coupled with a pint of Bishops Tipple and one of Horizon made for a very satisfied diner. Slick service from the bar staff and the chef, thank you very much. All in all a very reasonably priced, well presented delicious supper.

Dear Ed,
Firstly thank you for your review - very much appreciated by the team here at The Crown -and very pleased you like our magical makeover - the huge map of Devizes is a real talking point! I have passed your comments on to Head Chef Jamie - our new rotisserie oven is really delivering top notch results - duck being especially popular, so very pleased your wife enjoyed hers. We have recently updated our Sunday menu and would love to know what you think next time you are here, don't leave it too long!
Look forward to seeing you both very soon,
Kindest regards,
Jim Lynch

I have been to The Crown before and after the refurbishment and it was very pleasing to see the quality of the refurbishment. They certainly haven`t skimped on cost. There was an excellent choice of menu and I was made very welcome. The staff were well presented and extremely polite (which is rare this day and age). At first glance I thought the menu was a bit pricey, however when I saw the quality and size of portion I changed my opinion really good value for money.
I have been in the Licensed Trade before and I am usually very critical. This establishment is a credit to the Manager and Wadworth Brewery

Booked ahead a Christmas meal. Served very promptly, hot, well presented and table decorated festively. Plentiful portions, enormous Yorkshire puds, extra potatoes offered midway through meal, very pleasant waiting staff. Would recommend and will visit again.
