The Three Crowns Ratings and Reviews
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.
Stayed at The Three Crowns on Saturday 24th June . Evening meal absolutely fabulous, crab starter, chicken risotto (with sweet corn and popcorn) petit fours desert. Had a wonderful stay, superb meal, lovely staff, very attentive but also non intrusive - just the right mix. We booked here for a special occasion and without a doubt we will be back.
I have mobility problems and the staff took care to make sure I was comfortably seated and at a table out of the sun on such a hot day.
The food was very good, the only problem being the portion sizes, which were far too large even for the men in our party. None of us could finish our main courses, despite having no starters and that meant we could not have desert. No mention was made of the availability of reduced portion sizes.
I would like to see smaller portions at a lower price so that I could enjoy a balanced meal. This would be more economic for the pub as three courses will always cost more than one.
A special thank you to Lucy C and Lydi la for giving us a warm welcome. We had our starter and main in the glass atrium and then Lucy reserved us 2 cost armchairs next to the fire to have dessert.
The setting was truly romantic and I will definitely be making a return visit.
My only criticism is that there was a long wait between the starter and the main but with the ambience and friendly staff, we barely noticed
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.
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
Lovely waiters, great place, loved the new build extension and the architecture of old and new blending so well together. Friendly people and my partner had a lovely chat with the owner in the courtyard garden.
Shame i can't say good things about the food. This was our anniversary outing and we found the food poor, trying to be far too clever, haute-cuisine style badly designed dishes which are totally not working both flavour and execution wise.
Our starters were part undercooked, part over. Stay away from the scot's egg! My vegetarian starter of 'leek and potato salad with a poached duck egg yoke' was raw and tasteless and came without any bread or much potato (a few tiny cubes) to actually eat the runny egg yoke with.
Mains were too rich, lacking flavour and though huge portions, left one feeling rather unsatisfied. (An experience one resents paying for as you would be able to cook this food better at home yourself). A disappointment after the great revues.
I'm sure it's a fabulous place to stay, the ambience and the service was great, but the food lets the place down.
Thank you for yet another enjoyable occasion. The atmosphere, service and food were, as usual, excellent. The lunch menu choice was varied, well prepared and attractively presented.
Just one suggestion: a pace to hang coats would avoid the need for them to be on the back of dining chairs which looks untidy and can be uncomfortable.
Again the food was of a high standard. There were three on our party and each person enjoyed their choices . The service was friendly, efficient and timely. It was a very cold day but we were warm inside the most attractive glass extension
P.S. A very minor suggestion. A place to hang up coats rather than having to drape them over the back of chairs would be helpful and make dining even more comfortable: what about some attractive pegs along the corridor down to the loos?!
Excellent meal in a very cosy environment; service very good almost too many different people asking if our meal was OK. However, a very hospitable feeling and on the four occasions we have eaten here both in the bar and restaurant , we have not been disappointed.
Chaotic. Food was average staff were not experienced or very professional in dealing with Customers. When we pointed out issues with the food they just cleared the plates and said nothing! A shame as it's a nice hotel/restaurant
This was our second return for a friends' get-together, we liked the comfort and warmth around the log fire and then the bright ambience of the dining room last year, food was good then.
But this time we waited a very long time for our meal, it wasn't particularly busy either. I must also say that the chef needs to change the chips, they were the worst I have ever had. Triple cooked...why? Not crispy or fresh, awful!
Sorry, but I hope it improves because we like meeting here each year with our friends. Staff are very friendly and helpful, but come on chef!
Absolutely appalling. Booked table for 8.45. Food order taken at 8.50. By 9.50 absolutely no food had been served. When we questioned where it was ...... the waiter had forgotten/misplaced the order? Quite clearly it wasn't being prepared or anywhere near to being served. Shambolic. Ruination of, what was supposed to be, a special evening. We were given a £20 voucher for a future visit. A nice gesture but the evening was still a disaster.
