Excellent food and service. For us the interesting fresh daily menu options were a good choice. Beautifully cooked, tasty and well presented food in a pleasant, friendly atmosphere. Perfect.

You know you're about to experience something special when the waitress cheerfully and confidently commits your order to memory not pad and paper. And we were not disappointed. The meal was full of flavour and the meat beautifully tender.

We run a smallholding and are passionate about growing and cooking food. As we rear our own lamb, pork and beef we have very high standards when eating out. We are frequently disappointed. But not at The Crown! Each course was beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were enthusiastic and welcoming. The atmosphere was informal, cosy but stylish. We found that it was special but unpretentious. For this reason it was good value for money. Ticking all these boxes is extraordinarily difficult to find. Well done!

Yet again an excellent evening spent at the Crown. Service, quality and cooking of our meal was perfect. Lovely touch of surprising our two daughters with a happy birthday plate at end of the meal. Keep up the good work and hope to see you again soon.

The wine list could do with improving. I was saved by the specials which had a great Macon Burgundy that went really nicely with the fabulous crab special. The staff were really pleasant. And the bar is always a nice cosy place to hang out after the beach...loving the Adnams additions! (Ghost Ship a favourite of mine).

Hi Guys, well, what can I say :-). My friend I had this trip planned for months and were really looking forward to it. We weren't let down. The hotel and staff well exceeded our expectations. Room 9 is a really beautiful room, spacious, but cosy at the same time. We ate in the restaurant that night and the food was stunning and all served hot. The service was attentive but not in your face, perfectly balanced. After dinner we adjourned to the bar where the service continued at it's very high standards. If I could remember everyone's names I would thank them personally but that would take to long. A huge thank you to you all for making our stay so enjoyable, we WILL be back. All in all, a fantastic stay. THANKS

Dining for 4 - mother's day lunch. A wonderful reception greeted us from the bar staff including happy mother's day welcome. We received superb table service from Daniel who brought together a great relaxed atmosphere and casual chemistry with the staff and other restaurant guests Food was excellent for children and adults alike - All three courses were perfectly presented and clean plates returned to the kitchen. The very best in attention to detail and topped off with a very thoughtful table gift for Mum. Excellent !

The very cheerful service, without being overly intrusive, is particularly noteworthy. Together with the attention to detail and thorough cleanliness, our experience at the restaurant at THe Crown Hotel was an absolute delight. My wife and I cannot wait to come again soon.
