We visited this restaurant yesterday evening both the service and food was superb. Vegetables not smothered in butter, and meat cooked to perfection. We will certainly visit again and would thoroughly recommend going there. Lovely patio area available to sit and eat in if this lovely weather continues as well. Very well done to all and thank you.

As always, an excellent meal in a cosy and comfortable atmosphere. Shaun, mine host, made us very welcome and produced a couple of glasses of delicious Muscadet to start the evening well. Service was first rate, slick without making us feel hurried. My asparagus and quail egg starter was a lovely combination and my wife tucked in to her melted... More

I have known this pub for many years but this was my first visit back for some considerable time. Very attentive service and excellent food in charming surroundings. Nice to see a few locals in the bar. Everybody was very pleased with their meal and dessert, but I did think the Sunday roast looked a little lost on the plate,... More

Ours was a rather last minute (mid-week) booking and we were lucky to be accommodated. The Crown is a great pub with a fine pint of local ale, a lovely simple menu and quality food. Shaun is a very enthusiastic landlord with a varied gin selection and a good wine list. I'd certainly return when next back in the area.

London prices in the middle of nowhere. Food good but very expensive. Just 2. Sausages with bubble and squeak. Bubble and squeak turned out to be ordinary mashed potato with hardly detectable bits of cabbage. Nice pud.
