I get it. Devizes is farming country so having more than one or two vegetarian options on the menu that are not smothered in cheese is difficult. However, the Crown is one of the few places that succeeds in this having many options. For once, I can sit down with a menu and think "Choices! I have actual choices!" Along... More

I visited The Crown after a tour of the Wadworth Brewery along the street & it turned out to be a great choice - beautiful decor inside, quick service & a large menu with a number of vegetarian options. We had the fish & chips & the veggie burger (halloumi, roasted pepper & pesto), both of which were cooked fresh... More

This was recommended to our walking group as a place that copes well with large parties. There were 15 of us and we all pre-ordered. The service was efficient and the food very good. At the end we were all able to pay individually, thus avoiding that awful squabble over who had what. I really couldn't fault the place.

We needed somewhere to eat at 5pm on a Sunday afternoon. The Crown serves food continuously from noon until 8pm I believe, unlike a lot of local establishments, who stop serving between 3pm and 6pm on a Sunday. so we decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. Four of us enjoyed our traditional roast dinner very much,... More

My wife & I called in after a Wadworth brewery tour, just down the road. Unimposing frontage, but well decorated interior which goes back a long way and leads into a courtyard garden and a gate into the Wharf public car park. Staff were friendly and helpful, and we had a lovely lunch of a small plate of chicken pieces... More

Lovely meal on Easter Sunday, truly delicious roast lamb & all the trimmings. Hubby gave steak and ale pie 10/10.

Regarded as one of the best pub food venues in Devizes and unlike so many the pie is real, not a casserole with a silly flap.

I visited The Crown for the first time on the 4th March 2017 on my daughter's recommendation. We had a really lovely lunch, my wife, daughter, son in law and grand-daughter. My grand-daughter is Coeliac and my daughter prefer to eat a G F diet, so both were well catered for. I chose to have 4 starters as my meal,... More

We went to the Crown for an early evening meal. Three adults and three children. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service friendly. I was particularly happy to be able to order a small plate as I have a small appetite. Excellent Wiltshire ham, egg and chips. Wouldn't hesitate to go there again.
