“Great staff, superb food, ideal location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2009

We stayed at the Crown on Friday 17th April. I had only booked the day before as I had struggled to find somewhere dog friendly and last minute, from the moment I telephoned the staff were fantastic, efficient and friendly.

We were in room 8, top floor, but superb, lovely bathroom, great facilities and great view too!

We ate in the restaurant, the food was every bit as great as we'd hoped, once again superb service as well. My only criticism was a large party arrived and shattered the peace and quiet but that was not to be helped. The staff were so happy to please that they smiled and took no end of ridiculous requests about no sauce, no veg, no this, no that!!! but they accommodated everyone, the poor chef must have been cursing, I know I would have!

Anyway, in summary, very dog friendly, fabulous staff, great food and great hotel. Give them a try! we will be returning.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2009

too many times i've found a gem of a hotel only to return and find it spoiled. not so with the crown in exford. it just gets better. the new owners are wonderfully welcoming and attentive without being pretentious or overbearing. the pub attracts a friendly group of locals drinking local brews and good pub grub. the rooms, which are in the process of being upgraded are very comfortable. if you like to soak in a 6 foot tub, any room will please you, but if you prefer a proper shower, specify it when you book. but here's the real reason to seek this place out; the food is top quality. chef darren edwards is young but knowledgable. his meals are inventive without being "weird". his sauces are sublime, and heighten, not mask the main flavor of the dish. michelin people, heads up. this guy deserves a star.. this was my third visit in 10years. would i go back? in a minute---and i will. you should too
