We booked your private dining area for my daughters special Birthday, her 18th. The restaurant itself was very quiet however the service we received was extremely poor and slow. When my husband visited the bathrooms he saw that the staff were all congregated around the bar area talking. This did not make to a very memeorable experience and we will not be returning to your restaurant. It is a real shame as we were expecting such a different experience after visiting on numerous times before (which is why we decided to have our meal here) We weee given the dessert menu and told that they had run out of cheesecake which is what most of our table had planned to order. Surely knowing you had a party of 12 coming you would have catered to have had one of your favourite desserts in stock! We came away extremely disappointed.

Lovely food was let down by the staff seemed as though only one person really knew what they were doing. Would visit again hopefully the service was just a one off.

After a slow start we were really impressed with our visit to The Blue Crown. The bar service left a lot to be desired (my wife was served a glass of rosé wine that was well past its best and the bar tender apologised that "it looked flat"...) but once we took our table the food was exceptional. My wife's dish would have fed both of us and my fillet steak was simply the best steak I've had outside of a dedicated steak restaurant. Prices weren't cheap but I would say acceptably expensive. We will definitely be going back.

Table booked for bottomless prosecco lunch at 1pm, table booked in bar afterwards from 3pm. Food and service for lunch very good, however table in bar area not available as whole area taken over by, who we were told, was the owner and his mates and had the staff running round after them. A male who identified himself as SPENCER, an owner, told us he couldn't care less about our table booking and wasn't interested over "just a table reservation" complaint. Terrible atmosphere, dreadful management. Won't be going back and wouldn't recommend.

Everyone was polite and helpful but waitress spilled a whole try of drinks over my sister at the start of the meal and we were only offered a dry cleaning bill to be paid for which is probably more effort than it's worth. Would have been more of a gesture to have her main meal taken off the bill and a few drink. Just as a bit of feedback. Had a lovely day though

After having been to The Blue Crown (and The Crown) on numerous occasions and been fairly impressed by the food I decided to book a table for dinner and bottomless prosecco with 2 friends. I personally had the Chicken Satay Spring Rolls and Sticky BBQ ribs as a starter and main. The Spring rolls were ‘OK’ - quite dry and not enough sauce. The ribs were horrific, very fatty and the sauce was completely tasteless. Therefore, I ate almost half and left the rest, leaving me hungry. I then ordered the Sticky Toffee pudding to fill me up and the pudding was again, dry and the custard was extremely watery. I ate a quarter and left it. So overall I was extremely disappointed with the food. We then went to the bar for a cocktail, we all had pornstar martinis and all 3 of us noticed that they tasted ‘funny’ I can’t put my finger on what it was but they were really warm. Perhaps the juice hadn’t been refrigerated? Not enough ice? I left half of that as well!! I’m not a complainer and would never usually leave a review like this but I was really disappointed as I like The Blue Crown but now will think twice before coming back.

I was planning to email you about our visit yesterday (10/6). I have eaten with you a few times over the last year and this why I decided to book with you to celebrate my daughters 18th birthday. I had looked at Trip Advisor in the week leading up to the booking and was quite apprehensive as there were some poor reviews that had been posted. However, the service we received from your staff was excellent.There were a lot of staff available and they were all attentive, checking if everything was OK, regularly taking drinks orders rather than being prompted and getting us extras such as sauces etc. everyone's food was lovely as well , my lamb was amazing. When I left, I did compliment the waiting staff on their service and thanked them for looking after us so well. I did ask their names but I can only remember Gabby & Greg (?) - they were all great and I hope that this feedback reaches them. I will also be posting a review on Trip Advisor. Thankyou for a lovely lunch

Great service on the bottomless drink offer, glass was always refreshed. Starters were great, main was a bit bland - salad could have more flavour and chicken was a bit dry. Chips were cold when arrived, however out waitress did not hesitate to correct instantly. Overall great experience and would return again.

Enjoyed the tea and cakes. Good quality and attentive staff . Atmosphere a bit lacking as we were your only guests but of course not your fault. Thank you for the service.
