Everything was perfect, ambience, service, food. Only problem was deciding what to have from the mouth-watering menu.

Visited once again and had a well cooked and tasty meal. I find its quite expensive compared with other local restaurants also very small area where you can not have a private chat as the distance between tables is inches where others knock into you while your eating.

Food choice very good, attentive staff all very friendly but not in your face all the time. Mothers desert came out with "Happy 100th Birthday" in chocolate piping on the plate! Made her day. Portion sizes good. Price... More

After surviving our first attempt at putting up an awning, we needed a pint and a glass of wine. Immediately upon entry we felt welcome and we're served our drinks by a friendly barmaid who chatted away. We decided to eat here too and we're amazed at the restaurant style food - both in taste and presentation. Tried to go... More

Been back again for yet more lovely food in a friendly atmosphere. Five of us this time and knowing the portion size we opted for mains and pudding at lunchtime. I had the Lamb with a mint jus which was delicious and tender followed by apple crumble, one of my favourites. My wife had scampi, lovely and my daughter had... More

Had a warm welcome from a 10 year old boy in pajamas at the bar! A female quickly took over the welcoming and we were shown to our tables. We were asked if we would like some olives and Garlic bread. Olives arrived but the bread was very slow to arrive. Wine was in a bottle which seamed like a... More

We always eat at the Crown when we are in the Lymington area. The food and service were, as usual, excellent. My wife enjoyed her belly pork, while my steak and kidney pudding was excellent.

We have eaten here before on several occasions and were looking forward to our return visit. I had booked a table for four in the evening, a Thursday, and mentioned when booking that our two guests prefer to eat Vegan, or Vegetarian. When we arrived the chef had sourced numerous Vegan friendly foods (i.e. Vegan Cheese) in order to create... More

The Crown Inn Pub and Restaurant - our aim is to accommodate both drinkers and diners alike, within a comfortable contemporary setting (we have tried to mix the old with the new, to create a warm, cosy ambience)We have been here for 6 years, and Phil does all of the cooking, so our main objective is to provide consistently good home-cooked food (which obviously takes time to prepare and cook to your liking) from an extensive menu, using only quality produce.We would like to think that our service is of a similar standard to the food, and that you should feel welcome and 'looked after' at all times.
