“Our local...very hit and miss”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The Crown and Liver in Ewloe is a beautifully decorated establishment a stone's throw from our house. Boutique dining with a great menu and some lovely staff.
Unfortunately every single time we eat there something is wrong. Sometimes you have to wait ages to be served or you order food to be told 30 minutes later it's not available. Sometimes food arrives and doesn't match the description on the menu.....we ordered pate with red onion marmalade and got pate with piccalilli ! Last time we ordered food it still hadn't been brought out an hour later. The bill is often incorrect too. It's a shame with it being so close to our house as we walk past now and go down to Hawarden....it's just very hit and miss and you leave feeling like you have wasted money. I get the impression they are constantly under staffed even though there aren't many tables? I do have to say the waiting on staff are very apologetic and polite.

“Brilliant for a night out or bite to eat !”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Perfect venue for myself and my friends to go on a friday or saturday night , the cocktail range is amazing and is up there with any big city bar . The staff are always welcoming and pleasant and will always go out of there way if we ask for something different or extra.
The venue regularly offers live music which is always of a good standard and is always different , I cannot think of a better place locally !!
Last but not least if nothing else you must visit for the food .. You will not be dissapointed !

“Great family lunch”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We sat outside as it was a really hot day, out on the terrace was really nice to chill out for a relaxed lunch, great atmosphere. The food was really tasty, we have eaten here many times and it has always been brilliant, there was even something on the menu for my niece who is very fussy so plenty of choice and they are very accommodating if you want something specific. The waitress was spot on bringing drinks over regularly topping us up and checking on us. Overall a great place to go for food and relax.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Arrived into a busy pub without a booking but the staff were very attentive and helpful in organising a table for us. The service was excellent, food superb and the acoustic duo, were very good. Really enjoyable evening with a good ambience. Excellent staff.

“Such a shame”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Have eaten here many times when it first opened and the food was brilliant...the veggie lasagne was to die for...best I've ever had. Sadly can't say the same about my last visit...food was average and as I've discovered they now have a hygiene rating of 2/5 (Nov 2013) it'll be a long time before I return. Very disappointed.
