It is sad to see the pub closed , hopefully a new landlord will take this pub on again. It was such a good pub for food and especially Wednesday night fish and chips. It is much missed.

Had a very nice Sunday lunch, meat and vegetables were cooked perfectly, gravy was very tasty and service was excellent. Will definitely go again. Highly recommend a visit.

Walking part of Offa’s Dyke we stayed here overnight. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Lovey dinner, fabulous breakfast and even a packed lunch to send us on our way. Would thoroughly recommend to all.

The Crown Inn in Clunton is a lovely and cosy old pub in a fine rural setting. I visited on a Friday and found the staff and service to be warm, friendly and efficient. The local ales are top drawer. Heartily recommended !
