We have eaten here before on several occasions and were looking forward to our return visit. I had booked a table for four in the evening, a Thursday, and mentioned when booking that our two guests prefer to eat Vegan, or Vegetarian. When we arrived the chef had sourced numerous Vegan friendly foods (i.e. Vegan Cheese) in order to create... More

Made a spur of the moment visit on Sunday lunch as we've been meaning to try. Friendly welcome from the staff and shown to a table quickly. Not a huge selection of ales Downton New forest ale or the ever present Doombar with a Guinness porter in bottles. Reasonable selection of food choices on the menu. My wife chose pork... More

We came to the Crown on new years eve and had an excellent meal. The 2 ladies working there were really friendly and made a fuss of our 10 month old daughter. The food was really nice and to a high standard, and justified the relatively high price that we paid for the meal. The only downside for us was... More

Lovely dinner here. Quite tightly packed into the small restaurant area which we liked but if you want something more intimate prob not good. We were sat near the large chalk board menu which meant everyone looking around you to chose their food. Waitress very friendly and helpful so all in all a lovely experience. We booked which was probably... More

A small but lovely pub with great food, a good varied menu and a good chef. Service was good and friendly. All food freshly cooked so time to enjoy a drink or... More

We had been strongly recommended by friends to try The Crown as the food was good and popular. We were able to book a table with only 4 hours' notice - for a Friday, we thought that this was good! We were made very welcome - especially when my wife described my gluten allergy (I am a Coeliac). They couldn't... More

The Crown Inn Pub and Restaurant - our aim is to accommodate both drinkers and diners alike, within a comfortable contemporary setting (we have tried to mix the old with the new, to create a warm, cosy ambience)We have been here for 6 years, and Phil does all of the cooking, so our main objective is to provide consistently good home-cooked food (which obviously takes time to prepare and cook to your liking) from an extensive menu, using only quality produce.We would like to think that our service is of a similar standard to the food, and that you should feel welcome and 'looked after' at all times.
