Booked a three night break for a very reasonable price to include breakfast. Hotel completely refurbished but retaining traditional style and furnishings, dining room very elegant with the walls festooned with pictures many of past owners of the Brewery which now owns the establishment. Staff friendly and helpful, it was wonderful to have cooked breakfast from a vast menu served...

Have been to The Crown on several occasions and am afraid is really 'hit and miss'. Have had some great meals there and other times food is mediocre and staff a little dismissive. I love the refurb and think the place looks fantastic. Our last experience was probably the worst and despite our repeated visits hoping that things have improved...probably...

Had lunch today in the refurbished bar of the Crown Hotel. It was cold and wet outside but the log fire was warm and welcoming. The service provided by Dean and co was great. The food was great as it always is. The crown always delivers. Set up for the weekend!

Two of us were driving through town and spotted the Crown. We were a bit peckish, so stopped for lunch and a pint. We chose three of the "small plates" between us and it was a great decision. All three (garlic mushrooms, prawn twisters and pigs in blankets) were delicious. Portions very generous and we even had to take some...

We had 2 rooms and all were furnished beautifully as was the rest of the building. Service was on the whole excellent. My only criticism was breakfast where service was a bit slow and trying to ask for more butter and tea was not as easy as it should have been. Breakfast itself was a bit lukewarm and beans were...

Met up with old school friends here on the off chance. What a wonderful surprise it was. Grace, old world charm and fantastic food. The staff were fantastic and so helpful. We had lunch and then moved to comfortable leather arm chairs to reminisce..hadn't seen one friend for 40 years. Thank you Darren and all the staff we will be...

A very individual hotel. A welcome change from the usual chains. Always worry about the standards when you stray from the chains but we were not disappointed. It was beautifully and comfortably appointed with no sign of the usual wear and tear. The beds were particularly comfortable.We stayed one night with our children. The family room was fabulous; more of...

We booked this hotel for a one night stay as we visited The Hall and Woodhouse Brewery. The hotel was an absolute delight. Our rooms, situated on the second floor (there was a lift if you needed it) although not having the greatest of views (glimpses of the surrounding countryside) had a large tv which had an outside camera linked...
