Lovely hotel, friendly staff and gorgeous venue to eat in.
Excellant choice of drinks and wines.
Our starters were delicious,Ham hock and Goats cheese pannacotta but the main was a litlle dissapointing.
Wild mushroom risotto could of been a lot hotter and the hake portion was very small.
The cheese board was delicious.
Will return for lunch.

It's a nice place, but the food was very poor for the price. Worst burger I have had in a long time and it cost £13!

My partner and I visited The Three Crowns for our anniversary meal.
The service was superb: very diligent and friendly without being in your face. The atmosphere is almost spot on for that type of restaurant which is largely down to the staff but also the quality of the building and it's furnishings which all felt right.
Starters were lovely - I had the soup, my partner the pannacotta (from memory).
My main (hake) was enjoyable but if I'm nit-picking I felt it didn't quite live up to the menu description and it was lacking some flavour, perhaps too watery?
My partner had the lamb, which upon tasting a small bit myself, was cooked to absolute perfection; the potato accompaniment was incredibly delicious also.
The wine selection was wide and varied but not, what it can be in some cases, overwhelmingly so.
In summary a superb meal and we will definitely be returning for occasions in the future.

Not at all as was expected from the descriptions from advertising. The food is better in most fast food chains! The shared seafood platter was certainly not locally sourced but tasted like any items bought in any supermarket although edible. Main course of rump steak was appalling. Dauphenais potatoes were actually fondant potatoes and the steak was tough, pummeled and very overcooked, inedible! I could not bear to have anything else, especially as we had to wait a long time before service and even shouting across the room to get attention. I have already told many people not to go there!!!

Very nice meal. Good service. The staff were very attentive. I had the vegetarian goat's cheese and pasta. It was delicious. Could have done with a bit more goat's cheese though. My partner enjoyed his meal very much and the larger too.
On the down side, although the surroundings and service were excellent I did feel that where we were seated there was too much echo , making it a little noisy. Also, our table for two was lovely but we were seated opposite each other at a distance which made quiet conversation a little difficult.
Lovely meal though and I hope to go back for more.

Good food. Great surroundings and exceptional service. Even though we booked a Sunday dinner everything was available and superbly cooked and presented. Fabulous evening.

I have many photos but the opentable says they are too large. Me thinks opentable need to get an IT engineer to sort things.

This is a really special place. I found the pub on line and booked a night stay for my wife and I to celebrate my birthday. The village of Chagford is beautiful but also surprisingly lively with a number of shops, cafes not to mention several pubs, within the Dartmoor National Park. There are lovely walks from the pub door. The room we stayed in was beautiful with a super king size bed, well furnished, and with a large, well appointed en suite. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we walked in. When we returned to the pub after a 4 hour walk, we had tea and cakes by a huge open fire. The evening meal was quite simply the best pub meal I have ever had. We had steaks, which were served with glazed onions, dauphinoise potato, pea puree and gravy. This was followed by Eton Mess and Baileys pannacotta with home made ice cream. The food was exceptional but the attentive yet friendly service and the atmosphere within the restaurant really added something to the experience. The pub has an extensive winelist and a large choice of gins. Compared to other places that we have stayed at in the west country the price was good value. We will be going back at the earliest opportunity.

We decided to return to the 3 Crowns for lunch having stayed there for the first time in Feb 1999 for Valentines weekend with my now husband. We then stayed there in 2000 and 2001 and so it was nice to return and see how it had changed. Although we didnt stay the night this time it was lovely to be back.

Table service was friendly and helpful. The restaurant atmosphere was pleasant and not overpowering. Disappointed that the only vegetarian option was a salad and the roast dinner was only an option for those who are happy to eat red/pink meat. The children's meal was adequate but did not come with any vegetables. The meal was a little disappointing as we were taking my parents out for a thank you meal.

Soon as we walked into the restaurant we got a warm feeling everyone was friendly and helpful and it was a candle lit dinner so romantic. Drinks were offered straight away and the specials as we sat down which made us feel at ease. Nothing was too much trouble. A good ration of staff meant you weren't been neglected. Was slightly disappointed with cheese baked for the price but that's my only quibble. The food was tasty and too notch using local
Products and it was fresh

We were on holiday in Devon, we went here on three evenings for dinner. We visit the Three Crowns every summer in fact. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, the food always delicious. The menu is excellent with a good choice for all, using fresh local produce, including wine :).

See you again next summer.

I've had a number of meals at the Three Crowns and have never been disappointed. The menu is varied, but not over complicated, and the food is both delicious and beautifully presented. The ambience is relaxed and quiet and the service excellent. This is definitely my favourite place to eat, in this area, and I highly recommend it.

Friendly welcome upon arrival. Attentive service. Varied menu. Dining area was a glazed in courtyard -- beautifully done with simple tables and comfortable chairs and candles on each table. Separate dining area available just off the restaurant area for a more private dining experience. There is also an option to eat outside .
We started with cheese beignets with delicious garnish and Gin cured salmon--Compressed cucumber, homemade sour cream with tarragon and shallots, followed by grilled sea bream with fondant potato and seasonal ratatouille. We finished with a vanilla pannacotta with forest fruits and a prosecco jelly with a cherry parfait -- all quite delicious.

We were staying close by and needed somewhere for our first evening and it proved a good choice. A nice bar, friendly staff and we were made to feel welcome. Not a massive menu but perfectly adequate for a good and satisfying evening meal so much so that we decided to return later in our stay. Good food, well presented and reasonably priced, a real find and recommended
