After a seven mile hike across some remote parts of Shropshire, we were delighted to end up back at this lovely pub. Landlady was warm and welcoming and the locals friendly - food was DE-licious and they even had a vegan curry on the menu which was one of the BEST I have had. Great Ales and the rugby one... More

Lots of choice on the menu. Friendly service. I had a chickpea, sweet potato curry which was delicious. Other meals chosen were steak and Stilton pie with chips and vegetables and Thai curry with chips, rice and Nann. Very food value for money. The pub was clean and tidy although they'd been very busy before we arrived.

We stayed here for four days and weren't quite sure what to expect but bingo, if you are looking for the quintessential English pub then the Crown is for you. It's got the lot - full of character, characters and an outstanding crack. It is located in a most pleasant rural situation close to the Long Mynd with four comfortable,... More

Members of my motorcycle club have been returning to this pub regularly over the years and after my first visit today, I can clearly see why. A charming pub in a beautiful part of the country (10 minutes ride from the Long Mynd) serving excellent homemade meals and a good selection of cask ales. Great service from a friendly and... More

tough ribeye, sent back, got another which was a little better. I've had a much better ribeye from Morrisons supermarket! Service was ok and our server was apologetic. Wouldnt bother going back.

We rang before we went as they are known to be very busy. The menu choice was excellent as often, curries or fish dishes are often very limited. We ordered and food was brought to us reasonably quickly which is good when you have children. The food was exceptionally good and plenty of it. The staff were excellent and we... More

Just back from a really super meal at The Crown. I recommend the pies and suet pudding, they are simply delicious and obviously made with good quality ingredients. The desserts were excellent too. There are some really good ales on tap and the laid back friendly atmosphere is very welcoming. We will definitely return.
