Couple refused small plate for very young children to share a child's meal. Felt sorry for staff and family for the owners mean spritted attitude. Wont be going back there in a hurry. Can't complain about food or service but overpriced for what you get.

We called in for an evening meal after being recommended by our guest house owner. We were told we might have to wait as all meals are cooked to order. We waited only 40 minutes but the food was well worth the wait. The curry was outstanding and the chicken with tomato and basil sauce very tasty. Well worth the... More

Have visited several times over the years as I am from the area. The Crown did have a very good reputation with excellent food. It really did represent good value for money, was always very busy and you probably would have had to book a table. On my recent visit, the place was empty. We were there at lunch time... More

Visited with friends only to find the place closed. It was a Monday lunchtime and according to their website it should have been open?????

Booked a meal for family Birthday. Altered the number of people and they were very accommodating. Seven of us all had different things and food was too a good standard. I was surprised that it was very quiet in restaurant despite being a Saturday night. Slight hiccup with payment as their card machine was no working.

This is our favorite place to eat, the food is always well prepared and of excellent quality. The service is always polite and prompt. The place has a full bar so plenty of choice for a drink and the menu always has a decent choice. I would highly recommend if you are looking for somewhere.

It was almost time for the finish of lunch service but the chef served up two great meals at the request of our B&B host who had driven us to the Crown & Sceptre as I was exhausted! My chicken curry and rice with mango chutney was superb...particularly washed down with a Light Coors, and my husband had 3 thick... More

OK to call into if you're passing but not worth a journey to it. The Gammon was great, as was the battered Cod. On ordering I asked if the chips were 'real' & was told yes, guess what? the chips were of the oven ready type from a packet. I believe that the the lady taking the order genuinely believes... More

We eventually had a lovely meal which unfortunately didn't come without a lot of problems. The staff had no clue how to manage communication from the chef. We were told we could not order food at 7.30 then they said it had been a mistake we can order in 30 minutes then the food came as we were about to... More

Had an awful experience here today with my family. Despite booking over a month ago for Mother's Day,we were sat in the bar area as opposed to the restaurant. We had to chase up drinks,for someone to clear our table (25 minutes after finishing our mains still no one had come to see us) and then had to find someone... More
