The eight of us in the dome were extremely pleased with every aspect of the service, the ambience, the food and the value for money. The sunshine was an added bonus meaning we did not need the heating. It is a great idea for a celebration or just a group of friends getting together as we were.

I hadn’t read the small print so did not realise I was paying 40.00 to hire the dome I expected that to come off the bill. I think 40.00 is excessive

The lady that looked after us was amazing, nothing was to much and what a wicked personality. I haven’t been to the pub for a few years but the service we received and food was so good I would come back tomorrow

Fantastic food and service! Our waiter, Charlie, was great. We loved being in our own pod, worked especially well with a couple of kids in tow and our own music etc and will definitely be coming again... if we can manage to get booked in! Thank you.

Had a memorable evening. Only slight criticism perhaps could do with a second heater. Food superb.

I celebrated my birthday with friends in a dining dome. I can not fault our experience. The waiters were attentive and super friendly and the food was delicious and good value for money. I will definitely revisit 10/10

Service a little rushed due to kitchen slots but staff could not accommodate our party enough. A different dining experience which was enjoyed by us all.

I really though hard about writting this review. We were all very disappointed with our experience in the dome. On arrival we found the dome to be very cold, despite the small heater being on full, the whole party of 6 people spent the evening with our coats on and blankets across our knees and still felt cold. The 2 young waiters were very good and a credit to your establishment but we waited 1.15 minutes for our starters and a further hour for our main courses. The manager did offer our party a round of drinks on the house because he knew that the length of time we waited was ridiculous. All in all we were in a freezing cold dome for nearly 3 hours. If it was for the fact that we had paid a non refundable deposit and it was my daughters birthday we would have left after the starters. I have visited The Hand and Crown many times over 20 years but this evening was not a pleasant one. I would return but I would not recommend the domes to anyone.

I ordered the texan chicken, nowhere does it state that it contains mushrooms but it does so steer clear if like me you are a hater of mushrooms. When mentioned to the waiters not one apology was made. Cheeseboard not good value for money. The pods are really warm and cosy and perfect for a family meal / special occasion.

I booked one of the domes for my mum’s birthday on 6/2 and I cannot fault the experience. The lady serving us (I can’t remember her name, sorry), was absolutely lovely and couldn’t have been more helpful. The food was great, nice sized portions and full of flavour. I really liked the dome and the fact that you can play your own music in there, it’s a shame they aren’t there all year! Thank you for making my mum’s day very special. Georgia
