Interesting meals 3 of us visited at 1745 the food I ordered was good battered fish with mash both tasted very good and presented well, however the roast which my other two guests ordered where below average standard, now you could say going for a roast at 6pm it's always a risk but it shouldn't be on quality the yorkys...

Went for lunch with a couple of friends. We all had the chicken pie which was really nice, was served with vegetables and mash potato. Only let down was the mash potato. Staff were friendly. Will definitely visit again.

We met another couple here for lunch and used our gourmet card. We were looked after well and enjoyed the food. We only had a main course each as portions were generous. I had the couscous salad with a salmon fillet and enjoyed it. If the weather is warm there is a large garden.

I've driven past the Crown countless times over the years, but have never been in there until just recently. We were returning home and looking for somewhere for lunch that welcomed dogs, which the Crown did. There is a large car park, and a sizeable outside seating area before arriving in the pub itself, which is quite atmospheric even when... More

We dropped off here on our way home for dinner. We were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our seat. We both ordered roast chicken and a soft drink. When the chicken arrived it was the full crown, served with lovely thick slices of potato, cabbage, broccoli and a red wine jus. The chicken was beautiful,... More

A meal with old friends. Previous visits were sometimes disappointing but this time was great. Food was very good and our waitress was outstanding, helpful, funny and treated us as special.

The food is not as good as it used to be. Smaller portions, and over cooked vegetables. They really do need to improve in the presentation and quality of the food.

We decided to try the Sunday carvery and weren't disappointed. We can recommend the Sunday Carvery Platter for 2. The meal was filling and definitely good value for money.
