The breakfast was incredibly poor. Eggs were over cooked, bacon was charred and sausages were over done. The food was cold and there was no butter with the toast. The eggs Benedict was a disgrace. Won't be eating there again

Local contacts suggested The Crown as a place which serves good, straightforward food. The service was prompt and the food was good. The pub is popular, particularly on a Friday night, so it was rather noisy.

Judging by all the fab reviews we must have just had an unlucky Wednesday night visit. Staff were fine but table was sticky, food microwaved (lamb tagine) and expensive. We bet there is a better atmosphere on live music nights.

Eat and drink here fairly regularly. Good atmosphere and great food. Occasional music, usually very good.

Ate here after seeing they welcome dogs. Ours happily sat under the table whilst we enjoyed the food and local ales. Friendly staff and good food

Had a short bite a couple of days ago. Order at the bar and wait at the table. Wide selection of options, also some great vegetarian ones. Friendly and helpful staff in a nice location. Proper pub food.

Great pub with a good selection of ales and food. Can get crowded but all adds to the atmosphere. Worth a find and a try

Very good pub grub with a Mediterranean/North African twist - sardines, garlic and onions served on a skillet. Chicken, Parma Ham sandwich and salad. Well kept Doom Bar worth a sample (or few pints) Staff are excellent - especially Holly Highly recommended Enjoy :-)

From the moment of walking in, the experience was just right. I was very impressed with the welcome. The service was efficient and very friendly. Nothing was too much for the staff although it felt genuine and not sycophantic. Good ale! Fabulous food which was not overpriced. The waiting time for the meals was not too long but then the...
