Recommended for Sunday lunch, when visiting family, have read all the good reviews. Living in Yorkshire for the last 30 years has made me realise that if you pay this much for a very average roast then you are all being short changed.

This is the second time we have visited having passed it on a journey down to Chichester in January. Having visited a number of pubs in this area, I would say it is definately in the top 3 as we have had excellent food and service on both occasions. The setting is superb and we are looking forward to visiting... More

If there is a better pun in southern England, I'd like to see it. This is how country pubs should be: very friendly welcome from barman (possibly Italian), beams, portraits and even stained glass. While medieval in atmosphere, it is bright and airy with good local beers and excellent lunches. You may have dodge the range rovers and jaguars in... More

We stopped here having been driving through snow for what seemed like ages. Cold and hungry, we were not disappointed. We both chose the "pie of the day" which was steak and kidney, and arrived in a fair sized bowl, with a shortcrust top, a heap of buttery mash and some lovely fresh veg. It truly was just steak and... More

Nice lunch and good service in a atmospheric setting. Moules with frites very tasty served with a hunk of fresh bread followed by a yummy pud after. Ask to sit in the restaurant if you want to a quieter space to eat as bar quite busy

This is one of our favourite haunts. Never disappoints always a warm welcome from friendly staff. Good food at sensible prices including Crown Favourites. Even on a rainy Monday the Bar was busy with locals and visitors eating in the Bar and restaurant.

My wife held a dual celebration for her birthday and retirement. Over 22 people enjoyed the Crown's excellent food and outstanding service in an environment that is second to none. Well done the Crown for one of the most memorable evenings I have experienced.

Great roast beef...liver and trimmings...excellent... fried fish ..overcooked..frozen chips bullet peas...pub fish and chips once again proving dodgy..its obviously harder than it ought to be to cook this English classic. So stick to proper Sunday lunch food and all will be well The pub was packed .always a good sign. Friendly staff

We have had a few Sunday lunches at the Crown and it's never disappointing. There is a good selection of real ale, some bottled stuff, and the usual full bar. An excellent wine list also to go along with the meal. The roasts are legendary, with well cooked meat that is always delicious, and the roasties are probably the favourite... More

Description
The Crown Inn Chiddingfold, Condé Nast Johansens Most Excellent Inn in Great Britain 2010 and awarded Recommended Status for 2011. An idyllic English pub, The Crown Inn nestles in a quiet corner of the picture-perfect village green of Chiddingfold in Surrey. Totally refurbished, the olde world charm of the property has been lovingly maintained and sympathetically blended with a more sophisticated and contemporary decor. Beautiful stained-glass windows provide a stunning backdrop to our dining rooms, whilst our downstairs bar has an informal ambience. Our AA coveted 5 Stars has been awarded again in 2013 with the added bonus of a yellow star award, to sit alongside our 'Highly Commended status' for 2013. We are proud to be in the top 10% of only 11 Inns in England.
