We stayed here in our campervan (Britstops) and ate here. The food was great and really good portions. Just left enough room for pudding. We warmed ourselves by the open fire and the welcome was just as warm.

We visited for the midweek carvery which was very enjoyable. What more do you want in the on a cold winters evening than to sit by the fire, relaxing and enjoy a roast dinner. The owners and staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely be visiting again. Thank you.

Lovely friendly welcome in this charming traditional pub. We visited on a Friday evening with my son and his wife. There was a great choice of food on the menu with a specials board as well. My husband had the mixed grill and commented it was the best he had eaten and should not have had a starter. We did... More

I would feel happy to have a meal here on my own as I feel so comfortable at the Crown. The carvery is served on a Sunday and a Wednesday evening,... More
