Back in the area on holiday after 6 years. The Crown is still as friendly and cosy as ever. Staff are warm and welcoming and can't do enough for you. Food is superb, menu varied with everything from pheasant, to burgers to seafood. It may not be posh, but in my opinion, the best place in town.

Ordered scallops and bacon to start, nicely presented, then had the chefs hot seafood platter, half lobster, crab claws and mussels, the lobster thermidor comes with a cheese sauce, but can be done without it. Portion size is good as is the quality of the food, only my crab claws contained no meat, which where quickly replaced in a separate... More

Our second stay in Portpatrick and our forth meal in the Crown. Warm and welcoming to us and our dog. A real gem of a place to visit. The food is consistently to a high standard. Hopefully we will have time for another meal before we leave for home.

Obvious choice is the Seafood, it is simply fantastic. We tried the Prawns with Cod, the Sea Bass, Scallops with Bacon as a starter and the Seafood Platter over two nights and it was all amazing. Full marks to the chef.

Lovely setting close to the Port - The atmosphere is very friendly and the Crown offers drinking bar area at the front and restaurant area to the rear. All the staff were very friendly and delivered a professional service, they really went out of there way to accomodate us and I would recommend the pub.

Stopped here for a quick bite for lunch. My husband had the cullen skink and I had the fresh crab wrap. Both were delicious. Friendly staff and lovely real fire in bar. Perfect on a cold winters day. Port Patrick was a quaint little harbour village. If we're back again wouldnt hesitate to use the Crown Hotel for lunch again.

Add this restaurant to your list of must visit locations, best food ever at very reasonable prices. 9 to £15 T bone @ £21.95. Oh in case you we're wondering where all the brilliant chefs have gone, look no further I think they're in Duffries and Galloway we haven't had a bad meal all the time we've been here. Sunset....
