Salmon dish disappointing. Chicken dish good. Would like more choice of deserts ( eg fresh fruit please). Fish and chips available in the evenings please

Great service and the food was on point. Really nice mid week meal! Pork and Chorizo pie of the day was lovely and staff catered to my wife's dietary requirements excellently. Would definitely recommend.

For someone with a larger appetite the portion sizes were a bit small. The fish platter was amazing. When booking, I mentioned it was for a special occasion and we were greeted with a glass of fizz which was a lovely gesture.

The room to the right of the entrance was quite cold for my wife! We were sat by the chimney, Just something to be aware of. Obviously I didn’t feel a thing! Great place and love the food. Service by our waiter was excellent

I rated this on my last visit for Sunday roast I am a regular to The Crown,especially Sunday. Sadly although all the meats were excellent,all the veg were virtually raw. I don’t like overlooked,but the cauliflower in particular was raw. Also I paid in cash,my change did not appear,asking my waitress she said I didn’t think you wanted change ? I always willing tip,but to presume was unacceptable. As a regular customer I’m hoping this is a one off

I do actually recommend the crown and brought my parents to the carvery (Sunday) having learnt they'd never been. One minor issue was the roast potatoes had changed and were a big disappointment and the cut off the gammon was a bit fatty. Bring back the old roast potatoes and its be happy. Still a good pub/restaurant though.

Unfortunately our table was in the firing line for a cold blast every time the door was opened which made less comfortable than it could have been. Food was very good but was a little disappointed with the choice offered for vegetarians.

Disappointing. Mediocre food. Grubby table etc and I don't mean in a shabby chic way. Shame, but I wouldn't go back or recommend.

Food, service and environment is lovely BUT the garden was an absolute disgrace, no excuse for filthy dirty tables, full of empty dirty glasses, ashtrays and filthy garden floor area, had it been a nice eve there is no way we would have sat in the garden.
