“Fabulous meal”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We decided to pay the little crown inn a visit after looking at the reviews. Have to say we had a wonderful evening. My little boy had a great time in the park and then thoroughly enjoyed his food. All four of us adults had an amazing meal and the staff were extremely attentive and couldn't have been more helpful.
Will definitely be revisiting!

“Karen and Pauls Wedding party afternoon 21/6/14”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had a Fabulous afternoon celebrating our wedding we got married in Cyprus and decided to have an afternoon get together when we got back for family and friends that couldn't make it out to Cyprus. The food was amazing and the staff were brilliant. Friends of ours actually stayed at the pub as they do bed and breakfast and found the room very clean and comfortable and would stay again. Thanks Alison and Gus and all your staff for our wonderful day.

“Group booking for 20 for Father's Day and 13th birthday party meal.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We booked a group of 20. Fifthteen adults and five children for Father's Day and my sons 13 birthday. We were given a room to our selves which was laid up lovely. The food was superb and we were all served are meals together, huge portions. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. They even carried my son birthday cake out and lit the candles and sang happy birthday with us even when the restaurant was busy as it was Father's Day they still had time to make time to go that extra mile. The service is excellent one of the best we have seen for a long time.
The children loved the play area and was made to feel very welcome. It's definitely a family pub/ restaurant.
All 20 of us would recommend the little crown in fact we have already booked again for end of June. Can't wait .
