A real, roaring fire, homecooked comfort food, hot toddies and warm, welcoming smile!

Your hosts Sally & Jason welcome you to The Crown at Broad Hinton.

Undeniably pretty on the outside, The Crown Inn is just as attractive inside.

Our light and airy open-plan bar and a roomy, separate eating area where good home-cooked food is served, it is beautifully cool when the sun is out.... and fantastically cosy when the fire is on!

                                We had a wonderful Sunday Carvery at the Crown. The food as always was fantastic and the staff are wonderful. We were especially happy as we took our dog with us and we were given a different table in a quieter area of the pub without having to ask. Sally and the Team are amazing and we would highly recommentd.

                                Good selection of menu items and a super Sunday lunch Carvery. Shame we didn’t have room for pudding, but will make sure to try these next time!

                                Had the Sunday carvery, great value and lots of food. My only niggle is the skin left on potatoes, just not really my thing. Excellent service with friendly staff. Will be going back in the future.

                                We ate twice over the weekend at the Crown. We found the staff very attentive and friendly . Food very good . I had the chicken with rosti dish one day and the fish and chips the other day and both were good. Good selection of gins and tonics.

                                Outside heaters would really help Eating out of cardboard with really poor quality plastic cutlery was difficult. However as always the food, service and ambiance is outstanding will be going again for sure.

                                Really friendly and helpful staff on what must be a busy and stressful Sunday. Food was lovely and despite a few little hiccups with out order we were so impressed with the service and commitment to sort things out we’d like to say a big thank you, other venues should learn from the crown! Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

                                Service was atrocious. We waited for a long time to even get menus. Our starter were never cleared nor were our main courses. We asked for the NHS venue code to check in but also never received. They were busy but every table after us were served before us. Maybe it was because we weren’t locals? Food was mediocre. We asked for our mains and they arrived immediately which would appear were left waiting under the lights for a long time going by the dry texture of everything. Portions were huge. We would have voiced our feeling but no one came near us after dropping our mains. Overall very disappointing.

                                We travelled considerable distance to meet family and booked an outdoor table for the occasion. Upon arrival despite there being several unoccupied tables we were seated in a marquee and refused the opportunity to sit in the sunshine. The marquee was cold, soulless and extremely noisy because of the breeze. We were forgotten about and had to chase staff to take our order when later arrivals were ordering before us. The burgers were extremely tasty, the fish was okay but the pie was not very nice. It was also difficult to eat one meal out of two boxes. One large box would have been much easier.

                                Great pub near to Avebury with a large and spacious garden with pretty views over the countryside. Fantastic fish and chips, friendly and efficient service and all round a lovely experience. 5-mile walk (there and back again) to the nearby White Horse - public footpath from the back garden.

                                A lovely place, just out of town. Ample parking, beautiful garden with plenty of well spaced benches. Was a little chilly today but in the summer, it's perfect! A warm welcome, (very Covid19 protection savvy) and our host was very helpful and attentive. We chose from the sandwich menu. I had a beef and horseradish. A very generous layering of beef, fresh, crunchy lettuce with a noticeable amount of horseradish, all in between lovely, springy fresh granary bread. Side salad went well and was nicely presented. There were also some tortilla chips which I think would have been best accompanied with a dip, was a little dry on their own. My friend had the Brie and Cranberry, also on granary. This had bacon and was served warm. He very much enjoyed his too. Wasn't too busy but with things as they are (Oct 2020), it was a good idea to book. Definitely be back again.

                                A fantastic meal at very reasonable prices and first class service. The staff dealt with a couple of idiots who thought they could mingle very well. The only minus was the noise (one of the idiots) but not the staffs fault. Will definitely be returning.
