Delicious food although we'll order 'starter' salads next time as our portions were so generous! The staff were very helpful and attentive. We shall come again

Staff, very friendly and very helpful. One downside was that they didn't have any Gordon's Gin, which they had run out of. Breakfast was lovely too!

We have just returned from a two night bed, breakfast & evening meal stay at The Crown and could not fault a thing. The room was large and beautifully decorated with all the amenities you need. The food was delicious with plenty of choice and the pavlova 😋 Staff were very friendly and extremely attentive especially the lady who served the breakfast. Excellent value and we will certainly be back, thanks

Two simple starters, eg garlic bread, and steak and chips for two with one side...£80...what a joke! Never again. I get better value in St James’s London SW1 once a week. The Crown Inn is a the crown joke.

As a table of 7, we a had a fabulous two course meal. Not all the party had drinks. The food was amazing very tasty and plentiful. The price was quite expensive but for a special treat it was fine. I would recommend it

The Sunday roast was very good. There was a minor blip with one batch of Yorkshire puddings which were partly cold, but otherwise all good. The puddings were excellent. Thank you.

We dined twice in the evening whilst staying at The Crown Inn. Our first experience on the Friday was fabulous. The service was brilliant and the food was delicious. Our second experience on the Saturday however was a little disappointing. One of our party had the sirloin steak which was the smallest and thinnest piece of steak we had ever seen! It was also overcooked and tough, making it inedible. No one came to our table to ask if the food was okay and the staff were extremely busy and diffciult to catch whilst passing. Our party were unfortunately in the WC or at the bar when our table was cleared so we were unable to give feedback at the time. We also had two breakfasts here though which were absolutely delicious! The breakfast menu is inventive and original and quite honestly, the nicest breakfast we have ever eaten. The service at breakfast was also fantastic. On balance therefore, I have scored the food 4 stars.
