We had a wonderful extended family get together here, complete with dog (only allowed in the bar area). The food was excellent with a variety of meals on offer and the menus are changed every couple of months. Not too expensive either.

Fantastic meal here, The atmosphere and feel off the crown is very nice and the staff were very helpful! Wanted a roast but they had ran out and wait was another hour which is only reason I didn't give a five! We ate steak and burger off the menu amwhich was cooked perfectly!

We were greeted by warm, friendly staff who were efficient and hard at work on a busy Sunday lunchtime. They were courteous and professional without being either over familiar... More

We remember the Crown of a few years ago when it was heaving on a Friday night. Tonight it was barely half-full and some sections were totally empty. Zero atmosphere. I'm a vegetarian who eats the odd piece of fish. The menu offers very little for fish lovers (and the cod was off the menu tonight which only leaves you... More

Three of us visited the Crown for dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the new menu. We all chose differently and were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the atmosphere welcoming.

Popular with the locals, albeit not many pubs in the area, the food was decent for a walk-by and was of the better choices for the camping guests nearby
