We've been to the |Crown and Cushion before and have always been pleased with the food. I booked this particular visit for a Saturday evening and the restaurant was very busy. However, the food and drinks arrived promptly, the service was very efficient and polite and our party were all very satisfied with the whole experience.
A last minute search on trip advisor made us discover this little gem. Would definitely return to the area just for the steak and ale pie. A must!!
Can't fault anything, superb food, good service and a lovely pub.
Food was fine as usual - service though was awful. Were not offered the usual bread / olive dip to start that other tables got and have had before. Were not even offered dessert or menus for desert . Staff were generally sullen. Had to pay at bar as waited too long after i asked for bill. Worst of all when i was asked how was the meal when i paid i politely gave my opinion as above - the rather precocious girl with an attitude offered no apology and just said that they were very busy and did not have staff . I remarked that i had been there since 7 pm and the restaurant was mostly empty so did not get the ‘busy’ bit - she again ( no apology) just repeated they were busy and did not have staff. All she had to do was apologise and i would have felt slightly better about the whole experience. Not returning again
Lovely food, friendly staff. Very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.
The Sunday meal was good. Potatoes needed to be crispier. The meat was good. The vegetables and gravy weren’t anything special.
The cheeseboard was a lot of money for the portion I got 4 crackers. We had to say a number of times the sprite was not right. It was not as good as I was expecting which was a bit disappointing.
Great place,would rate the front room on road side as fantastic, room at car park side seating is like a cafe, would benefit from new tables and seating. Fantastic food,
Service and pub excellent. Ordered roast beef which was very fatty. Asked for a replacement which was only slightly better. Everything else and rest of our groups meals and desserts were lovely .
Great food, especially the children’s menu which has much better choices than most. Our only dissatisfaction was with the blue cheese fritters on the Yorkshire platter which had no flavour. Otherwise, we were very happy and will return.
We are regular customers here and other venues in the chain We try to avoid Sundays because it is busy and can be noisy. The food is always good with a varied menu and the staff are always friendly and helpful. We are great supporters of the 'pass port' promotion .
We found that sitting just inside the front door, right next to the bar was not pleasant or conducive to a relaxed meal. What with customers coming and going through the room plus ALL the staff in and out of the bar and some of the staff "larking" about made it very noisy and "busy" - not a relaxed atmosphere at all. Will refuse to sit in this room in future - if nowhere else available I will drive to another restaraunt!
Great food in reasonable surroundings. Service was okay. Prices were average
Great pub in a beautiful location.
The menu for the Sunday had good choices and the staff were friendly and efficient.
Lovely lunch stopover on the way to the East coast - just a mile off the A64 and a nice country setting - enjoyed the seafood platter and a pint of real ale and hope to return
Lovely pub with excellent food and surroundings. Perfect for a birthday treat
Forgot to bring my 2nd drink but didn’t forget to charge for it. Charged wrong price for our 2 starters. Most of the staff too busy watching the cricket World Cup
Lovely proper pub in a charming village with easy access to the grounds of Castle Howard. Food always good although we find it best to avoid Sunday lunch times as they are always very busy.
This as our first visit for a meal. Very helpful staff, quick service and it was good to be able to include your dog on your visit. We both enjoyed our Sunday lunch and will definitely visit for a meal one evening. Lovely pub and pub grub of a high standard. Enjoyed our visit
Lovely country pub and restaurant. Great food and service. Definitely will be coming back.
Hadn't been before so it was a bit of a gamble but nearest place to Castle Howard where we were attending an event. There were 6 of us and we all had different things but the blue cheese souffle was the favourite starter. Two of us had a special for mains which was called Hake with an Asian risotto which was very nice but nothing much Asian about it. It tasted more of saffron but nevertheless the fish was cooked perfectly and was very tasty. Portion sizes were very good, just right for the men, a bit too much for the ladies but we tried to finish as much as we could. Service was good, attentive, and there when we needed more drinks etc. Overall a very nice meal in nice surroundings (inside). We would return and recommend to others.
had the roast beef, it was excellent rare and very tasty. great service by excellent staff
Very pleasant Saturday lunch, good menu choice and food very tasty. Waiting staff very polite and attentive.
We had a lovely family lunch at the Crown & Cushion - the food was delicious and very good value. We ate from the lunch menu which was well priced but still had a good choice. We'll definitely go again!!
One problem was the size of the table and also the closeness to the next table. The menu was average and my lobster bisque was only a small spoon of lobster cream making the dish very dry and I was not told that my fish would be whole, ie full of bones. My wife’s food was ok.
Really like this place for many reasons. Beautiful surroundings, warm welcome, tasty and well presented meals are some examples of why. Will most certainly be returning and have in fact a table booked for a forthcoming celebration. Looking forward very much to that.
Could be improved further by the inclusion of vegetarian options on the menu
A lovely Sunday lunch. Great food, friendly, attentive service in a lovely location - would highly recommend you try it!
I think your experience of this eatery depends on your menu choice. My partner thought their meal choice was excellent, well presented and tasted good. My burger however, was cold, with two small dry over cooked 'beef patties', with unmelted cheese - very basic burger I would not call inspiring, or exciting. I would call again, but next time go for the cheaper element of the menu, not the a le cart!!
Good value as always. Very good range of food choices including vegetarian options. Never disappointed here.
We enjoyed a very good meal on Thuirsday 23rd. May 2019. The only disappointment was, I thought when I booked the table it would be in the restaurant and not the bar.
Very good service and exceptional food. The noise lever was perfect except for a table of four enthusiastic grandparents sharing videos etc., on their telephones, a little off putting but I know this wasn't your fault. Probably it would be a good idea to ban mobile telephones when people are trying to enjoy a meal.
The night we visited was "steak night" at The Crown & Cushion", which we chose, steak was excellent, cooked to order, and served very promptly. The staff at the pub were really friendly and courteous. A great pub, great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this as a place to enjoy a meal.
Very good food and excellent service
Great food , friendly staff and a great location. Trip of Rhubarb a la Yorkshire recommended! Will be back!
Lovely meal, very tasty. Service was good. Harissa Chicken would be my choice next time although the burger was very filling.
This used to be such a lovely place to eat but I have found that in the last year or so the place is starting to look a bit tired. Cobwebs, dust, broken lighting, sticky tables. Attention to detail is lacking. Staff miserable looking. Waiter untidy and smelled of tobacco smoke. The food was alright but it used to be so much better. Such a shame.
Lovely food and staff. Leisurely meal in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
We were a party of four and three of us enjoyed the food. Sadly my husband had the fish and chips and was disappointed. He said the fish wasn’t very good and the batter was overcooked. We hope it was just a one off because everything else was enjoyable.
Pie and chips was £15.00 per person. A small pie. Good pastry, dry filling. A small pile of fried sliced potatoes (not chunky chips as advertised), a boat of bisto gravy and a pile of gritty carrots, yes that was the only veg on the plate. A fairer price might have been around £9. Felt completely ripped off, but couldn't complain at the time as i didnt want to spoil the evening.
Very pleasant experience. Had a small wait for out main, however was given a free pint for compensation 👍
7 diners, no complaints, 7 empty plates all three courses,says it all.
