We chose The Crown for a party of 36 and it was brilliant. A lively bar atmosphere with delicious canapes was followed by a roast beef lunch which received wonderful compliments from our friends. Helen,her staff of Josh and Lara, and the chef, did us proud. . An experience not to be missed. an experience not to be missed

We ate at the Crown on a Saturday night. It was OK. I guess just pre Christmas it was busy with a few noisy groups. It was also very bright, not much atmosphere. The food was fine. I guess we'd had such great meals in the local pubs that the Crown was a bit of a disappointment.

The service was superb and we would recommend the Crown without reservation. The Lunch menu was interesting and varied and not extensive, which is always a good sign. All aspects, whether... More

The Crown doesn't have a skerrick of a historical feel left about it but if you want a pub that is fresh, modern and slick this will work for you. The starters were nothing special to write home about but full marks for the sea trout and the desserts so it made the 25 pounds for three courses quite good... More

But my expensive burger was made of compressed very finely ground meat in a bun with a couple of lettuce leaves and a thin layer of mayo. The chips were good. My partner had sea bream on a bed of spinach. It was tasty but the portion... More

We went to take out daughter for lunch before the end of Christmas break. 6 people in the entire restaurant. We ordered fish of the day x2 which was cod on a bed of barley and chorizo. My daughter had the lentil curry. The cod was dry and very over cooked and the barley were like rubber bullets. The mushrooms... More
