I don't call myself a vegetarian, but try to follow a vegetarian diet wherever possible. If there is nothing to my taste on a menu, I will opt for fish, but haven't eaten meat for some time and don't think I could face eating meat any more. The only vegetarian offering on the menu here on Sunday was pasta with... More

We called in The Crown on our way to Chelmsford looking for a light lunch and that's exactly what we had. The sandwiches were tasty, well presented and good value. We found the landlord to be very friendly and helpful and would call in again.

Reviewed this February this year for Sunday lunch and gave it an excellent. Lunch today was frankly awful. But on taking drink order barman gave the immediate excuse that he was a relief manager (should have been adequately trained I would of thought).

In regard to your review I would like to clarify a few points after speaking to my relief manager upon my return. 1) The relief manager who was very well received by my regulars and other clientele has previously owned and managed his own pubs/restaurant so I find your comments rather patronising, unless of course you have had first hand...

Table booked for 4, early Saturday evening in June. 2 of the main courses were unavailable leaving only one option (pasta) for the vegetarian in our group. Waited over 30 minutes to receive starters - including 3 small slices of garlic bread; the shared starter was overpriced and not fresh. Included 5 small slices of bread (between 2) and dried...

Hi I am sorry your meal was not up to our usual high standard. It was explained at the time we had an agency chef in on that day and unfortunately we are at the mercy of the agency as to who they send in. We pay a premium for this service, but they do not always deliver the chefs... More

Stopped off here for lunch during a day trip to Maldon with some friends and ordered our lunches. Quite a reasonable selection. Only one lightly downside - my wife and I decided to order one of the "share" dishes. Nothing wrong with the food except that there really was only enough for one and instead of calamari we had prawns.... More

Description
Andrew and Sarah are very proud to be able to invite you to the Crown. Although a native of this area for many years, Sarah has travelled extensively and brought a vision of the fabulous places around the world to the walls of the Crown in our unique and inspirational picture gallery. Andrew whilst not a native of this part of Essex, has brought his passion for great food and good wines to the kitchen and dining room of the Crown. Their shared vision of this welcoming pub is waiting for you in the heart of the countryside but just 15 minutes from the centre of Chelmsford. We are currently offering bar food, baguettes, panini's home made soup and will be opening up the restaurant for evening food in June 2017.
