Had a brilliant evening with friends. Outdoor seating area was fab with the log burner roaring and individual heaters. Service excellent and food was delicious. We will be back. Thank you

Food and drink great. Cosy but lacked a little atmosphere due to being very quiet (as expected in the current times) Service was efficient and polite. Value for money with offer. Standard pricing for country pub.

We were a little late arriving after some uncertainty on plans. Although the kitchen was starting to be closed down, Ben made us really welcome and was very accommodating. We had meal in a great atmosphere.

We had a lovely Valentine meal here and unlike many other places the menu was not restricted to a Valentine menu rather there were Valentine specials so we were able to mix the normal menu with the Valentine menu. The atmosphere was cosy but still relaxed and the food was cooked perfectly. The restaurant was busy but we didn't wait too long for food which was hot and tasty when arrived. Staff were attentive but not overbearing. Thank you for a lovely evening

Very limited dessert menu..ended up going to Denstone Farm shop for the coffee and pud. Prawn cocktail expensive for the amount of seafood in it Bowl too full of thin gravy on the lamb shank. And it was more like a lobby than a gravy Small lamb shank but too much mash Thought it was mediocre have had better meals else where

Food just average, poor prawn cocktails, supermarket prawns and had to ask for more sauce, the mushroom starter was luke warm and the burger bun was stone cold and not toasted. Service was friendly and efficient

A lovely Sunday lunch. We like red cabbage, but today’s was too spiced. Too many roast potatoes, Though again they were very nice. We will come again

We are new to the area and found The Crown online and decided to try it on Friday after a busy week. It was immediately warm and welcoming. The food is straightforward pub food but well cooked and tasty. We both had lamb shank which was perfectly cooked. Starters could do with a bit of work, my pate was perfectly pleasant but my husband’s mushrooms were underwhelming. However all in all a good experience and we will be back.

Lower rating on the food based on this visit slightly disappointing due to very small portion of soup which was very peppery and over cooked pie crust.
