A nice friendly pub. We enjoyed a couple of meals during our visit, including the Sunday roast/carvery. The meals are good quality and represents excellent value and would definitely recommend.

Nice pub with a good choice of ales. The menu was simple but there was plenty to choose from, and the food was very good.

I visited the Crown on two consecutive evenings with my sisters while on a visit to Lynton. We enjoyed hearty tasty dinners on both evenings and would strongly recommend. Staff are both friendly and efficient. Lovely relaxed atmosphere.

The last time we visited Lynton, it was closed. The food on offer was enjoyed by both of us. It is on this list for our next visit to the area.

We arrived just after 9pm, when they stop serving food, but they were more than happy to serve us food and didn't make us feel it was a problem. Friendly staff, tasty food.

Decided to try the crown for our evening meal, and it was the perfect choice for a wet Feb evening. The bar area had an open fire and a welcoming warm atmosphere. The menu whilst not extensive did have a good choice, we opted for cottage pie & fish pie. Service was excellent, and our meals arrived promptly and piping... More

Lunchtime mid-January and wood burner going in the main bar so at least nice and warm. Overall environment though very average. Reception likewise. We had a couple of meals which were okay, but not bad in terms of value - cod and chips quite substantial. Two real ales - Tribute and Exmoor - and an array of the 'gassy stuff'.

Friendly local pub serving good food with a smile. Great value too! Not many restaurants and pubs were open in Lynton in January but The Crown was a good find.
