My wife and I called in for a light lunch with our two lovely Golden Retrievers and we were absolutely delighted. The welcome and friendly staff were just wonderful. We only wanted a sandwich and a glass of wine and we were certainly not disappointed. We both had the Crown Club (triple decker) sandwich and it was excellent. Lovely side... More

We struggle to find places that will accept our well behaved dogs, so it was great that we were made welcome here! We had a simple lunch, vegetable pakora which were good, and Cullen skink which was good but too much for my mum - the poodle enjoyed the haddock. Then battered haddock and chips, excellent chips, fish freshly cooked... More

Since we moved to Lanark a few months ago, we have visited the crown for meals many many times! We quickly fell in love with everything about this place. The staff are all so welcoming and friendly, and really can't be helpful or flexible enough. All of the food is homemade and absolutely delicious, and is served in an extremely... More

I've been in this resto-pub a few times now and each time has been a pleasant experience. It's a well run establishment.

Not been in here for a while, the food was delish, especially the Caribbean chicken, very filling. The kids were happy as they could go off and play pool. Could do with a wee uplift, still a very traditional pub 😊

My dad doesn't know I'm typing this. I always go to the Crown with my dad and my mum, but mostly my dad. He takes me for a long walk (sometimes a short one) and then we stop for a drink. Dad gets to sit at the bar and he checks to see if I can get my lead off.... More

Hi Ronnie. Firstly, please accept my apologies for the time it has taken for my response, I will not try and make any excuses for my member off staffs' actions and he has been warned regarding his future conduct. Bottom line is, he is paid to tend the bar, not take it upon himself to decide when to close. I... More

The staff were helpful - the food is White Wine served in a 1/4 bottle warm! Airline style. The decor could do with some updating in the restaurant not sure about the bar but it was very busy. The Caribbean chicken was a plate of creamy sweet sauce with a bit of mango but lots of cream in it -... More

I wish I could take this place and move it closer to my house ! We travel from 25 minutes away to come and eat here. Food is first class, steaks are great, haggis pakora to die for and the chicken stroganoff is a delight. My other half , (a burger aficionado ) rates the Crown burgers highly. You're met... More
