Had a fantastic family meal at The Crown this week. The set up with the new guidelines is really easy to follow. Service was great and food was excellent. Definitely recommend a visit here and we will definitely be back.

Food service was excellent but when asked for extra items like cutlery or sauces then had to remind the waitress! No masks or visors worn by staff and they meant over me to serve my husband his food.

Had a lovely birthday meal with my family. Food was fantastic as normal and service great. Lovely surprise to have a warm chocolate brownie with ice cream as a birthday treat from The Crown - finished off the evening nicely. Will be back soon.

We had a fantastic lunch - the staff were attentive and thoughtful and very accomodating. The only other bit of feedback I can think of would be to provide a vegan mayo alternative for the veggie burger and clearly mark out vegetarian from vegan options. An alternative milk for teas would have been nice too. But overall a fabulous experience with a great outdoor area and we'll be back!

The Sunday roasts were excellent. The beef was nicely cooked which is not always easy to find these days. All of vegetables were also excellent with good flavours and textures. The cheesecake was to die for. We will definitely be coming back!
