As a long established fan of The Crown, I felt the need to check it out now it's reopened. There's plenty of choice on a menu filled with good English pub food. By means of comparison, I tried the Crown Burger which was always a success. Good news. It's still successful, very tasty and still good value but...there's work to be done here.
The new landlord is a lovely bloke. Very friendly and welcoming but he needs some help! Service was quite slow despite all his efforts. He kept us informed, apologised profusely and luckily were weren't in a hurry. More staff are needed but maybe more business is needed first?
I urge you to give The Crown a try. Anstey needs somewhere like this.

We have visited every week since The Crown has been serving food again. The food has always been excellent. Sunday lunch is good. Why people complain about the price I don't know. It states on the menu how much each meal is. If you don't want to pay that much go somewhere else. Try a 2 for £10 place but remember you get what you pay for.

Called in for lunch on a Thursday and when inside there were only two other tables occupied.had to wait with three young children for over an hour to be served two burgers and a scampi and chips lunch. When it came the burger was missing a seeded bun and onion rings as advertised and was generally poor.we challenged the 'chef' about the missing items and he said he would something out.when paying we had to ask for that something and was offered a pound off!!! The burger was overpriced at £9.50 and this was very poor service! If you have been before when fat cats had this place it is no where near that quality anymore,overpriced,has very poor service and is frankly a waste of money.
Do yourself a favour and avoid at all costs.

£6.25 for a pulled pork sandwich, chips and salad garnish. The food was pretty tasty tbh. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. I just felt it wasn't really worth the money. A fiver would have been about right. The other items on the menu were also overpriced. A burger with cheese would have cost over £10. Surely that cant be justified. The food though is good. Maybe some cheaper lunchtime specials would bring the customers in

This pub has opened twice since being taken over from fat cats. We've attempted to eat here three times now and still haven't seceded. we tried on Friday and even thought they had had a sign outside saying food would be served from Friday they weren't doing food. We give in. won't waste my time going again. I just hope when they sort themselves out it's as good as it used to be.
