Last minute decision to go out for a meal. As usual the Crown did not let us down. Great food. Attentive staff and a great eating environment. Keep up the great work and we will be back soon. Thank you.

Nice pub and location. Food is over priced for what it is. For example, if you wanted a double burger, you’d pay £6 or so for another pattie. Different servers saying different things. Liked that the cutlery was presented in the plastic bags under current COVID regulations. Overall it was a pleasant lunch.

Thank you for the review. We are very proud of our Covid safety regulations and so are pleased that you felt safe. With regards to the burger additions we would like to mention (for those reading this) that our burgers are big juicy 6oz patties made of prime steak mince from the excellent butchers in Westoning and not skinny, pre-made patties found in other local pubs. We hope this clarifies the price. See you soon.

We had a lovely meal out. The marquee was a really lovely cosy feel and as the night went on and it got a little busier and a great atmosphere. All the staff were polite and friendly. The food including the gluten free alternatives were delish and spot on. Would definitely recommend and we'll certainly be going back.

As We are local to the village We thought that We would support one of it's local hostelries & booked a table for three-We were shown to a table by a mature lady & asked to fill in the track & trace form. As it was reasonably warm & I am fair skinned I asked for a Parasol, I was told that somebody would fetch this for Me-as they were relatively close-I went and fetched one myself. The Mature lady approached our table & was quite sharp mentioning that she had said that she would get somebody & I informed her that it was not hardship for me to do it,. My Daughter had used the track & trace App on her phone , but again was sharply reprimanded telling us to fill the form in which we did. We ordered Our food & drinks on the App - but were informed that there were technical problems & our meal was ordered manually- After We had finished our meal My Wife called the more mature lady over thinking that as there had been technical problems We would pay Our bill, this was not the case as the money had gone through-but the order had not-(we paid for extra drinks that we had ) - 5 minutes later we were told that we would need to vacate Our table in 5-10 minutes as there were more people coming -We looked around and the table next to us had two gentlemen ( who were both driving & they were having a drink & some crisps-not a meal) so One would assume that they were not planning on staying any length of time. This was the first time that We had been out since lockdown to any public establishment, we were literally there 1 hour & 15 minutes -We will not be hurrying back which is a shame as we have been living in the village 25 years & we have used the crown on many occasions.

We are trying our best and try to get things right 100% of the time. We apologise if this was not the case for you. It's a real shame that you didn't want to mention anything at the time. If you had any issues we could have rectified them there and then. We have tried to introduce measures that are there to keep people safe, the staff are trying their best and working hard to ensure all laws are correctly adhered to but obviously you see this as a problem rather than a help. We did have technical problems with the web ordering and we would hope that some people would have more understanding but clearly not. It's a shame that you have written this review on an open forum rather than speaking to us, of course why do that when a negative review will help a struggling business so much more! Oh that's right it doesn't. Not sure what else to say now, maybe the people of Shillington will prefer to not support the local pub and see it turned into flats instead!

Nice place but no burners working made it AB uncomfortable night.

Restaurant Response

Hello John. Thanks for the review. We didn't put the burners on in the afternoon (when you visited) as we just can't afford to be burning fuel all day long, it's just not financially viable. Friday was warm with people sitting in the sun. We did put the burners on in the evening when it got cold. You may not be aware but there is now a shortage of Calor gas in the country due to them not exporting any from France!!! So we are limited to the amount we can have. Hope this explains our decision to try and save some money and to hopefully survive this year.

We ordered takeaway pizzas and they were ready in minutes, were absolutely delicious and certainly good value for money. Many thanks to The Crown team for doing such a good job and we can't wait to visit the pub again once restrictions have been lifted.

My parents and I came to dine at The Crown on Friday 18th December. the day before the restaurant was closing due to lockdown. Bearing in mind the staff were possibly going on furlough leave with uncertainty about their jobs, you would never have known that was the case. The staff were totally professional and the food and atmosphere was amazing.

Not accepting old 20 pound notes even though they’re legal tender was very disappointing. It’s still legal tender and because of that we won’t return
