We went here for a Sunday roast with family. The food was very tasty, and although I enjoyed the beef, the two members of our party who had lamb said it wasn't great and was chewy. The desserts were also tasty, but they were very small for the money. After asking for the ice cream flavours, I made my choices... More

I had visited this restaurant previously and was delighted to find that the service and quality of food had been maintained at a very high level. There is a good choice of food which is well presented and comes in good time. The ambience is also very nice.

What a pleasant surprise this place was. We went for a family meal and took my elderly Mum. The menu offered a good choice but we all ended up being tempted by the turbot. It was a good decision it was excellently cooked and served with gnocchi and wilted greens. A nice touch was the use of wild garlic which... More

We had booked the Crown as a group of over 40 (in number, not years) and the choices of menu catered for all tastes. The pre-dinner drinks service was fine as was the dinner service. Everyone got their meals in a timely manner and the additional drinks during dinner came as requested. A comprehensively good performance from an unexpectedly located... More

It is a shame that this little pub has decided it doesn't need people to drink the, rather well kept, beers it offers. It seems to only want people who sit at tables and eat meals. I suggest to changes its name and calls itself a restaurant.

It has been about three years since we have been here, we came as a family and bought my Mother for her birthday. We really enjoyed it. Food was good. All the staff sang happy birthday to my Mother which she loved. All so friendly. We shall not leave it so long next time.
