I had a lovely lunch with my family on Valentine's Day and again on Monday. The food is excellent value and the staff can't do enough for you. I will definitely be returning.

Stayed in the Kingsize room ( named The Big Pit ), for 3 midweek nights and found the place a delight.

Book if you can, I thought Tuesday would be quiet but had to sit in the bar as restaurant was full. I wasn't the only one either. Staff were friendly and the food was home cooked and tasty. I was glad I drove past a chain restaurant to eat here. Car park isn't huge and as its popular you may... More

What a lovely place with friendly and efficient staff and stunning food at reasonable prices. What more can you ask for? We had the portobello mushroom burger and the steak, mushroom and Stilton pie and they were both generously portioned and freshly cooked. Well done The Little Crown !😊we will be back !

Here at The Little Crown Inn we pride ourselves on making your visit as enjoyable as possible, whether you’re just popping in for a quick bite to eat, or staying for a 4 course meal and a relaxing night in one of our 5 en suite guest rooms. . Located in the heart of the valleys and situated next to the cycle track, we are ideally situated for cyclists and ramblers, and are able to cater for large groups as well as small parties. The pub boasts a large bar area, with a restaurant and function room, and is equipped with a pool table and dart board. We’ve themed the corridor leading to the new restrooms on a mine shaft, equipped with real miners’ lamps and gas masks! It’s definitely worth a look!
