“Good Dining Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Having visited Devizes on a few occasions recently, it is true to say that I have been somewhat underwhelmed by the quality of the eating establishments on offer, most of which have been very average.

However the recently refurbished Crown stands apart from the rest, and we enjoyed a good meal in comfortable surroundings at a realistic price. We were able to avoid the dreaded televisions in a nice secluded dining area and the service was attentive. A civilised venue for a decent dinner.

“A delightful sunday roast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

We went to The Crown for Sunday dinner a couple of weeks ago. The food was excellent and the customer service was good. Would highly recommend. Massive yorkshire puddings and perfect roast potatoes (with top ups as required).

“A great place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

I have just been in the crown mid week for a what I would call a 1st class meal with friends.
The pub has just undergone a major refit and looks very much the part.
The menu has a large and varied choice catering for most tastes.
I had the batterd fish and my friiend had the duck salad which were both good and of high quality.
The staff are very good, well trained and attentive especially Holly who went out of her way to make sure our evening went well.
If you are looking for a nice meal out in Devizes look no further you will not be disappointed.
