What a great place to stay we were welcomed and well looked after by the landlord and the staff rooms were great and the food is some of the best I have had. The home made pies were beautiful as was the rest of the food we had. The beers and ciders are top quality too. I certainly aim to... More

We'd heard lots of good things about The Crown so we decided to try for ourselves. We called in on the off chance that they were cooking all day last Friday. The owner was a lovely man and really interesting to talk to. Food was fantastic all cooked perfectly. I finished off with the cheese board that could have fed... More

We've quite recently become locals, and this is just a nice, comfortable, relaxed place to be in the first instance. But also a hub - that's hub, as well as pub. On numerous occasions the landlord and staff have looked after us: hungry and few minutes late for the end of service - the kitchen will do what they can;... More

All the food was fantastic, proper comforting country pub food and atmosphere. If your stopping at the green caravan/camping site it's a must! Maybe an idea to book as... More

We called in at this pub on a very busy bank holiday looking for lunch for 11 people - 7 adults and 4 children. We asked whether they had a table for 11 people fully expecting to get a negative answer. But in fact, after a quick discussion with the landlord, they were prepared to give us a large table...

A 16th Century pub with a welcoming atmosphere and good food. I brought my friend from California with me to have a very tasty meal on our way back from visiting Shrewsbury to my home. The landlord noticed that my friend was admiring the horse brasses and delighted her by making a gift of several to take back to the... More

David and James make you feel very welcome. The menu is varied with good food which would suit most peoples tastes and is reasonably priced. The pies come in two sizes which is ideal if you have a small appetite The pub has a friendly atmosphere, I would recommend calling in if you are in the area.

We stayed here for one night. Landlord, David Smith, made us feel extremely welcome and "at home". Comfortable room, good food and nothing was too much trouble.
