Well run establishment! Sat at the bar and was given extremely attentive service as well as good advice on ordering food. Fish and Chips are a must here. The fish is thick cut with very light batter and it all comes out of the kitchen...More

I visited the Crown while on business and will return. The pricing of the food was very reasonable. The ribs were a little dry however very tasty, and the chicken was cooked perfect. The owner was very entertaining and would tell jokes which really just...More

I've got it from daughter in law, whose father is an immigrant from England, that this is exactly how the pubs in England look and taste. She ordered bangs and mash and my son had seafood pie and I had a taste of each. WOW!...More

So sorry I am just now seeing this. I cannot imagine why they wouldn't take it. It was quite a while ago so I don't recall. I know some places refuse that card b/c of the fees but lately I've noticed more and more places ARE... More
