    Our group had different choices from the Sunday lunch menu and everyone thought the food was good. We were particularly impressed that the appropriate sauces for each meat and a jug of extra gravy was brought to the table just before the meals were served without us having to ask afterwards. Having dined at the Crown before, we knew that the size of the restaurant was not large so on arrival we we dismayed to see a large screen TV was dominating the room showing cricket. We were given the choice of sitting where we liked so given the limitations we sat on a table as far away from the TV as we could. On previous occasions the room was solely used for dining but it now seems that the Crown is becoming more of a drinkers' pub. Again, given the size of the room we found our dining experience marred by foul language and as the numbers increased we felt uncomfortable with people standing drinking around the tables, particularly considering Covid precautions. At one point the smell of cigarette smoke was so strong that we looked around to see if someone was smoking in the restaurant. The smell was actually coming from smokers standing outside the back door but it was being drawn into the restaurant so very unpleasant whilst eating.

    We really enjoyed our meal. My husband said the battered fish was the best be had ever had and my only complaint about the fish platter was that I needed someone to help me eat it. It was much too good to leave any so I was really full.

    Made the reservation via opentable app which was super easy….really friendly staff and a super tasty meal. All four of us were more than happy with the service and the food. The Ham egg and chips went down so well, as did the lamb bhuna. We had the chicken and avocado salad (I asked for an avocado replacement of eggs which was no problem) what a super tasty salad!! Well worth a visit and we will definitely be returning!!

    Good menu choice at a reasonable price. Bar area with tables busy but sat in separate room which was quieter. Would have preferred no ice in my wine spritzer, but it turned up with it in - would have been nice to have been asked. Waiting staff pleasant

    Dirty pub, didn't have our booking in their diary despite booking online earlier that day, served a raw burger to my husband, left us for almost an hour without checking on us, didn't take American Express cards despite bringing the bill out in an American Express folder. Definitely won't be returning.

    the food was excellent and it was great to have a room on our own, we had two children three adults and a dog - so our first experience of meeting family after lockdown was great....we didnt upset other people with our noise! and the children could run in the garden and the dog had treats. Great! Thank you The Crown at Gawcott.

    Facebook post stated that there were a couple of tables available only. We arrived at 7 pm and until we left at around 9 pm only one other couple came in to eat. It was set up as a dining room yet there was a huge TV above me playing a football match. There was also a TV playing the same match in the bar. I asked if it was going to stay on and was told only until the match had finished. However, no one turned it off for the whole duration. There was a noisy crown round the bar and 2 dads with 3 children who ran around and in and out of the room. I would say that all the behaviours described don't suit and are not appropriate to a restaurant setting. Certainly, when we go out as a couple for a meal we don't want a TV playing a love us children running around and noisy people around the bar. Apart from dying flowers on the table and a salt pot that was dirty and empty the room looked attractive. It's such a shame as the food was excellent. They also managed my dairy intolerance really well.

    Easy to book, food simple but good both in taste and in amount. Staff helpful and efficient. Ambience nice and rustic. Only issue was the TV being louder than needed. TV should be moved out of the dining area to make it less intrusive for the diners.

    We had a great meal here on their Curry night! My saag chicken was great and my wife loved her prawn korma , which she said was not too creamy as some can be Those who had the prawn starter agreed at least one more prawn would have helped ... quite small for the price ! The mixed kebab starter was very nice One of our party had a byriani that was huge ! We will go again

    Welcoming country pub in the centre of the village. A friendly atmosphere and cosy setting. Food menu is limited but interesting and makes for a change from the usual pub fayre. Quality of the food is very good and the service was attentive. Definitely worth a visit - we'll be back!

    The roast dinners were nice and a reasonable portion size. Even though we had booked, our table wasn’t ready and we had to ask for menu’s and to order drinks. Apart from that, service was ok.
