Not as geared to residents as it used to be. Our bedroom had fresh painting not complete, faulty door lock, broken mirror light with wiring exposed, fused light bulb, litter down side of furniture, dirt under beds, fresh bed linen late. Room not serviced each day. No full breakfast as stated on websites, and poor 'continental' breakfast set up 'on...

The Crown has had its ups, and downs, but is now again a great village pub. Great for sports, and chatting to fellow locals. Newcomers always made welcome too. Nibbles laid on for the rugby internationals always helps too, and the staff are all lovely, polite & helpful. Also has a Thai restaurant attached, which is great.

Stayed here in Dec on a last minute booking. The welcome was warm and the room was clean and tidy. The locals in the bar were very friendly. I do try and stay in establishments like this to support them, as they have so much more to offer than the Corporate Hotel Chains. I will be back to stay again.Thank...

Some friends had said that the takeaway Thai food was very good, so the family thought we would give it a go... I have spent 25 minutes on and off trying to ring through and no reply. There is only one phone number, and it wasn't engaged, it just rang out for a minute to a minute and a half...

The manager was very welcoming and friendly. Carried bags to the room and clear fire instuctions and where to find him if needed through the night. Bar staff a bit thrown by our arrival, they didnt know what to do. Eventually got there when they said 'would you like a drink whilst waiting as the Manager has popped out and...

Have eaten in the Thai restaurant recently with friends and have had a take away from the restaurant . On both occasions the food has been excellent. Very tasty, fresh and good value. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Went last night with friends for the first time since the Crown became a Thai. The ambience is really nice, although it was very quiet for a Saturday night. Really good menu, service was probably a little slower than we would have expected for such a quiet night- but when it did arrive the food was really really good. Fresh,...

Was like being at a Thai restaurant in my own home. Salt and pepper squid was outstanding. Fantastically priced for the quality of food! After having a takeaway we intend on experiencing the same food delights at a table in the Crown. Whilst waiting for my Thai food I enjoyed a pint of Peroni, great pint, well looked after pipes!...

I arrived and all looked well. However after a change out of business suit I went down to the bar for food only to be told that the chef had walked out with a bad back. It was only 20.20 and food is supposed to be served until 21.00. As a single female I did not want to venture out....
