The last time we visited the Crewe was about a year ago and we weren't too impressed. We tried again as we were told that the manager had changed since then. A change for the better! My wife and I both agreed that the food was very good. I had the Calves liver which turned out to be the best... More

Booked very last minute, superb Sunday lunch with good variety of Roast meats and excellent range of vegetables. Good specials and care taken over meal presentation and customer service. Very limited Vegetarian choices in main meal section but staff could not have helped more combining starters to produce a lovely meal.

Popped in here with my son, for a "home" prepared meal. This pub is situated in the centre of Hinton-In-The-Hedges. A quintessential British village and village pub. On entering the bar you pass by the locals, at ease with their dogs and newspapers. Talking to the landlord, it does seem to have a high turnover of Tenants, but those in... More

We visited at 2.30pm on a weekday and lunch was still being served - we fancied a ploughmans lunch which was not on the menu but the chef managed to meet our request with an enjoyable selection of cheeses with salad and fresh bread with fig chutney. I would recommend including this on the menu - it was delicious.

This is a country inn specialising in quality food, almost gourmet. As it should, because it is hidden away down a long lane and on the corner of a tiny cotswold village. So picturesque and refined. The village is beautiful houses with well kept gardens. The pub has a car park at the rear, it would be easy to miss.The... More

Firstly I have to be honest and admit that I do know the Manager of the Crewe - However, that said, he wasn't in last night and the staff both in kitchen and front of house did the place proud. It was a small leaving party for 10 of us. The staff were very welcoming and gave us the lovely... More

Selected The Crewe Arms based on reviews and were not disappointed to find that this charming pub lived up to expectations. Spent morning in Brackley, coffee and a look around, including the Antiques Cellar (must return for a longer browse). The pub is situated in the delightfully named village of Hinton-in-the-Hedges about 10 minutes drive outside of Brackley. Do not... More

We decided to head out for Sunday lunch. In the car we phoned ahead to see if The Crewe Arms had a spare table for two.... Yes they did 👍 The restaurant is set in a lovely village and the restaurant must date back 100's of years and with many of the original features have been retained. The menu looked... More
