Love the venue. Thought the dining room didn't need overhead lights. My husband had the steak which he said was excellent. I had the driest burger I have ever had. It came, apparently with salad, barely noticed it. Service at the table bit iffy.. but, still recommend. Our friends had pie of the day which came with lovely fresh steamed... More

Been coming here for drinks and eats for years. yes we've had a couple of bad meal experiences, one Christmas in fact but that didn't put us off. We often meet friends and family here. The bar staff are great however busy. Love the atmosphere, enjoy the food and always great beers like TEA or Pride on draught. Yum!

We called in Monday evening for a light meal but got tempted by the menu. I had the rump of Sussex lamb which was out of this world. Great flavour with a superb sauce. Ann had the Corn beef hash which she enjoyed. Staff were great as usual.

We were lucky to get a table outside. A beautiful setting with the church opposite. The food was excellent and a great choices. I had 2 starters for my meal, croquettes and a meat skewer. My friend had a very tasty burger with chips. Very busy place. I would recommend booking the restaurant inside.

This inn, on the village green in Chiddingfold, retains a charming bar where it is possible to have a drink in comfort even if not eating in the restaurant. This means it is still a lovely place to meet friends if you live in the area. Having said this, the restaurant serves excellent food at reasonable prices and staff are... More

Recommended for Sunday lunch, when visiting family, have read all the good reviews. Living in Yorkshire for the last 30 years has made me realise that if you pay this much for a very average roast then you are all being short changed.

Pre-booked for a Sunday lunch with friends. This was my first visit to the pub and ..wow! It is full of charm, history and great staff. The food was delicious. Service was great and to be able to eat in such a splendid location was just wonderful. I think you get the idea...well worth a visit!!

Description
The Crown Inn Chiddingfold, Condé Nast Johansens Most Excellent Inn in Great Britain 2010 and awarded Recommended Status for 2011. An idyllic English pub, The Crown Inn nestles in a quiet corner of the picture-perfect village green of Chiddingfold in Surrey. Totally refurbished, the olde world charm of the property has been lovingly maintained and sympathetically blended with a more sophisticated and contemporary decor. Beautiful stained-glass windows provide a stunning backdrop to our dining rooms, whilst our downstairs bar has an informal ambience. Our AA coveted 5 Stars has been awarded again in 2013 with the added bonus of a yellow star award, to sit alongside our 'Highly Commended status' for 2013. We are proud to be in the top 10% of only 11 Inns in England.
