Despite arriving, for lunch when the pub was busy we were made to feel very welcome and served quickly. The IPA was in excellent condition, and the food served in large portions. The fish and chips especially so . We had a great meal. We finished with coffee , and that was the only disappointment : the promising aroma ,... More

We went to the Crown for the first time for many years as we had noted several good reviews. Time was short so we only had main courses as we had another appointment afterwards. It was a Saturday evening and the place was full so a very good atmosphere. The drink selection was fine with well kept beer. Several of... More

My two friends and I are attempting to visit a pub a week within the local area and this continues our reviews starting from January 2017. We score each establishment on 6 categories, the last making up 50% of our overall score. The categories are as follows; Service (10%) Facilities (10%) Drink selection (10%) Atmosphere (10%) Value (10%) Overall experience... More

Good food and service, well kept ale and friendly staff. Everything I would hope to find when eating in a pub but so rarely do. The Crown have got it exactly right and long may it continue.

5 of us went to the crown for lunch following a bike ride around the local area. The food was delicious. Well cooked and well presented. I had the lamb with potatoes anna and to follow the trio of deserts. The young staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all a lovely experience.

I had lunch here with a friend. I had the burger followed by the cheesecake. The burger was very well cooked with nice fries & onion rings. I then had strawberry & white chocolate cheesecake - in all honesty I couldn't taste the white chocolate but I was glad about that as I think it would have been a little... More

We had a pleasant lunch here recently in the Snug although the tables are a little too close together. Two of us had the scampi and one had the cod loin. The latter was very tasty and worth the wait. The scampi however was rather on the dry side and over-cooked which was a pity. The sticky toffee puddings were... More

Visited The Crown with my dad and my better half! Had a lovely meal with good service in a nice setting. We're not regulars at the Crown but head there every few months and have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
