The menu is mostly basic pub grub but it is well done. We had the shared skillet with beef and sweet/sour sauce which was excellent, and ideal portions for our 'mature' appetites. The dining room is attractive and the welcome warm. The staff coped admirably with our party of (I think) 16 and were obviously keen to see us enjoy...

I had hunters chicken and the chicken was really overlooked and inedible. I should have sent it back but decided to persevere. I told the waitress and...

Always worth a visit to the crown. Traditional pub with Great ales, and excellent pub grub at low prices. The mixed grill is a must if you're a meat lover. I would be happy to recommend to anyone as a good location. You won't get haute cuisine but you will get honest food at a great price.
