Our first stop for a drink on the way home and our first choice of a meal for a special occasion or a Sunday Roast. Cosy and welcoming fire-lit bar and small eatery means you feel very looked after. The owners are extremely knowledgeable and will make sure your meal/wine choices suit your tastes. We come back time and time again. Great food, beautifully presented and large choice of drinks. BRAVO!

The Crown never fails to deliver a quality experience. Shaun and his wife set the bar very high, with no apology, but without any pretension. They know what they’re talking about, and when it comes to food and drink, they know how to make it special without sacrificing an arm and a leg (tho’ if you want to go the extra mile, they can cater for that). Staff are warm and friendly and highly trained, and the place is absolutely beautiful. These folks have got it nailed, so go treat yourself and someone special - you won’t be sorry!

sadly we were the only people in on Friday evening. Sean and his team made us welcome and kept us fed and watered over 2 hours. We had a range of options from the menu and the bar all well presented and flavoursome whether a gin or a steak.

My husband treated me to a meal here for an early mother's day. We had our nearly 2 year old in tow. Wow!

3 course meal, 5 different dishes between us. Obviously a chef in the kitchen that knows what they are doing!! My husbands steak - he has eaten A LOT of steak, and he said it was the best he had ever had!

All of our dishes were visually stunning, the taste of each and every dish was impeccable.

Waiting staff very friendly. Accommodating with our little one. Nothing too much trouble.

This pub is a little gem, from the outside, and the decor it's older and traditional, yet what comes out of the kitchen is very "up there" and modern.

First thought on the menu, a little pricey, a bit more per meal than most other local places, but by judging what comes out of the kitchen worth every penny! Not a place I would visit regularly because of this. Our bill came to around £80.00 for 2 adult 3 course and a bucket of chips for bub. But definitely will be returning on special occasions!

highly recommend if you like something a bit more special.

Small eating area means very few diners at a time so you feel really looked after.
The steaks are incredible and so are the desserts. Its not cheap but its not overpriced either and you really get what you pay for. Great friendly service too, highly recommended. Love going here!
