“Fabulous meal”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
