We were in Lynton for three days while our last visit was a couple of years ago and we only ate there. We choose the Crown Hotel because it remains open throughout the year the food is very good. I believe the Crown dates back to around 1786 or thereabouts. So we are not talking about your modern hotel chain.... More

My wife and I recently visited Lynton and spent a couple of evenings in the Crown. All the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. There was a good selection of real ales that were well kept. Our meals were good quality and very good value. The menu was fairly standard for a pub but all our... More

Had a really good couple of evening meals here. My husband had the shepherds pie both nights. Good to see vegetables were different on both nights, makes a change from the big chains who serve peas only. Really cosy, sat by the open fire the second night enjoying a glass of wine and then a coffee after the meal, which... More

Cosy pub, good beer selection and a tasty carvery. I get a bit niggly when I get served less because I'm tiny (I eat like a horse!)-this wasn't the case here. We were both served generous portions of carvery-whatever we wanted and the chap serving made a point of checking we were happy with our meals. Lovely vegetable selection (including... More

Dropped into the Crown for the Sunday carvery and a beer. Great food and plenty of it, very good value for money. Nice suroundings indoors.

Good honest pub. Food basic, but good. Landlady and landlord friendly and helpful. Everywhere was spotlessly clean

Staying in Lynton, we decided to have our first evening meal in The Crown. The bar area is lively, but not over-poweringly so, with many locals meeting for a drink and convivial chat. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the bar for our meals, which were served very promptly, and were very good indeed. With great value... More

Visited this pub with my parents on our first evening on holiday. Cosy pub and interesting decor. Staff polite. Food traditional pub food but nice. Enjoyed a prawn cocktail for starter - don't see that on menus very often - and we enjoyed our mains. Good portion sizes. Enjoyed ourselves and went back again for dinner the next evening!
