The food was fine and so was the service. It went down hill with the desserts, especially the moose, it was a wavy line literally just painted on the plate, 2 mouthfuls for £7.

Went to the Crown with some friends. Had a fantastic evening. Staff & service was great and lots of choice on the menu. The burger was outstanding and very mouth watering. Cannot wait to go back.

9 of us visited for Sunday lunch, they were busy, but the service was OK. We all had roast dinners, either beef or lamb, the meat was lovely and the roast potatoes were amazing! We all had flat Yorkshire puddings, but we saw other diners with tall ones, so I think we were just unlucky. The only disappointment was that... More

Thank you for visiting us at the Crown, we are so pleased to hear you all enjoyed your roast dinners. They don't sound like our usual yorkshires so apologies, next time please just ask them to be changed. Our desserts change quite frequently so hopefully next time you will find them more inspiring, please email us any suggestions. Many thanks More

Beautiful pub. Superb decor. Food was ok but such small portions!! Rabbit pie with veg? One spoonful of cabbage. Had to ask for extra which we were charged for! Chicken in mushroom sauce? Really? What sauce?! One potato croquette dressed up to look like a pear and a few sweet potato chips! Chicken wings very nice but had to ask... More

We don't eat out very much but to celebrate a birthday we were recommended the Crown at Granborough. We went with two friends on the 'fish and bubbly' night and the whole evening was lovely.

The staff and atmosphere were super, but £23 for a very ordinary ribeye was a bit overpriced in my estimation. The chips / fries were ok, but the peppercorn sauce was bland. In case you think I may just have had a steak that was a bit of bad luck, my wife also thought her steak quality was ordinary as... More

Lovely atmosphere and very friendly service. Pleasing menu and food intolerances were catered for. The gas fire was lit for us and really helped. Would have been five stars but the fish and chips were rather greasy,

Called in for lunch and started with a pleasant drink in the bar area. The area is quite large and they have a good range of drinks and some interesting gins. We moved into the dining area which looks like an older building that had been converted. It has a nice airy feel with a lot of natural light. We... More
