The Crown Inn at Catcott is wonderful! Row (landlady) was most accommodating for our table of 9 and we all had a brilliant evening. The food was excellent and the service was some of the best we have had whilst travelling. The gentleman on the bar who served our food and drinks was most pleasant and really made us feel... More

Ten family members visited the Crown Inn this evening for the Sunday carvery. It was good to be able to find a proper carvery on a Sunday evening as most places only serve it at lunchtime. We were made very welcome as soon as we arrived and the staff were excellent with our 11 month old baby and made him... More

Our second visit to the Crown was as good as the first. Beautiful home cooked food, big portion sizes in a lovely pub. The land lady, who does a lot of the food too is very welcoming and relaxed. From smoked haddock and leek fish cakes to steak and ale pie and home made puddings to break most diets! Thanks... More

Went here as a last minute decision so hadn't booked. Warm welcome when we walked in and we were given a seat near the big open fire. We shared a cheesy garlic baguette for a starter, which was to die for. For mains, my partner had a rib eye steak and I had gammon. Both meals were delicious. The lady... More

Found this pub on TripAdvisor. On vacation in the UK visiting family for Christmas. Home cooked food which was excellent. Family run, friendly service, and good value. It was a quiet night at the pub so we were spoiled! Thoroughly recommend especially from fellow Americans. The pub dates back over 400 years.

We had a lovely Sunday Lunch here after visiting Ham Wall Nature Reserve. The food was delicous with a good choice of vegetables and a plentiful helping of meat. We had a choice of Beef, Pork and Turkey. Puddings to at a reasonable £2 although we were too full to try one! The welcome from everyone was lovely and everyone... More
