Two visits to the restaurant in December were disappointing. New chef lacks the flair and competence of the last one before a change of ownership. Puddings on one visit were hot on the outside and cool in the middle. Not my party (of 10 at my recommendation) so no complaint made. Second visit with guests was not a success. Admittedly... More

We decided to go to our local for Christmas day lunch. At £68 per head it wasnt cheap but we decided it would be a lovely change. I have to say that the food was ok - just ok. A lot of little improvements would have made things much nicer. There was a pre starter on offer. Out of four... More

Thank you for your comments which we have taken on board and discussed with the team. The pre starter was just a taster that we were offering customers so we are sorry to hear it was not to everyones taste. Please accept our apologies as there should have been crackers with the cheese board. We usually find our cheese board... More

I have eaten at The Crown before but haven't had lunch there before meeting a girlfriend for a chatty lunch. The service was outstanding, the food delicious and well presented, the dining space comfortable. Perfect - we'll be back!

We popped in with friends last night and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. We ate in the bar area, and had plenty of space. The newly upholstered seats were very comfortable. The restaurant was very busy and we arrived at peak time, even so, we received drinks pretty quickly and even though the staff apologised for the delay we didn't... More

Recently visited since new management, the food was mediocre, I still felt hungry after the turkey and sticky toffee pudding that was about 4 mouthfuls with very watery so called custard. A great disappointment from the many meals I've had before at the crown. I won't be going back in a hurry.

It's many years since I've been to The Crown, and heard that it had been taken over recently. The Sunday lunch menu is great, as you have the choice of a roast or something off the a la carte menu. It's a relaxed atmosphere, and both the food and the service were excellent.

It has been a few months since our last visit. This was an impromptu visit for lunch. The restaurant was not too busy on arrival but it soon filled up. The roast pheasant was very good although the roast potatoes were a disappointment as they had that reheated flavour and texture. The rabbit pappardelle was also very good with lots... More
