Nice ambience and attentive, pleasant staff. Food was good but a side salad with the pizza would have been even better.

Surroundings pleasant and character with nice and pleasant staff. The menu looked simple but with range of choice and was presented well. Ours choices of food did lack any real depth of taste. The noice levels in front section were very high with talking, a little better in back area but this because not as full. I would rate this as a reasonable but not exceptional experience.

We were there for the crown’s Spanish night with love music.

The food was quick but some of it wasn’t quite hot enough but we were very hungry so we didn’t say at the time.

Nice vibes in the place with live music.

We were disappointed with the pizzas we ordered. They were very thick based - similar to one we would buy in a supermarket. We were expecting a thin base cooked in a pizza oven but these felt like they were regular oven cooked ones.

The woodfired pizzas were excellent. But what we found to be superb were the desserts! The chocolate fudge cake and salted caramel brownie were sublime. Even better was our server, Jack, whose friendly nature shone through. All in all a fantastic place. The only negative (and it is marginal) is the decor is a bit on the minimalist side thus taking away from ambiance. But this in no way would put us off coming again. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch. I had mentioned that we were meeting for my friends birthday and was thrilled to receive a glass of Prosecco each complements of the bar. This was a very nice touch. The food was amazing!

The pizzas here used to be very good but sadly no longer. We ordered two and they were overdone and did not have much toppings. Disappointed for the price paid - would not eat here again unless things improve.

Menu was limited in choice & ambition - food was okay but I could have done as well myself. Nothing wrong with it just dull. Don’t think I will bother to go back though staff were very nice & service friendly & efficient.

What a lovely few days away.

The Crown was such a pleasant experience.

The staff are great, very friendly welcoming and attention to detail is spot on. We had such a lovely visit for our anniversary.

The room was spacious, clean and the little touches make the difference to the overall experience.

We had dinner just after our arrival, (Sunday Lunch) and it was superb. Great portions sizes too.

Would definitely recommend the Crown to anyone thinking of going.

Thank you again for a lovely stay.

Basic but OK. Food no more than average. Yorkshire pudding served COLD! They claimed that this was correct- we come from Yorkshire and can assure all that this is not so!

Met a friend here for lunch on a rainy day and chose it because they advertised as being dog friendly. Great choice, delicious homemade pizzas and brilliant service. Good ambience and didn’t feel rushed at all. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely return.

We had a fantastic evening at The Crown for their Fiesta night with my family.
The tapas inspired dishes were really tasty and well presented, however the menu would have benifted from Gambas Pil Pil and Meatballs. It was great to hear live music again. Look forward to returning for another Fiesta night this summer.

Lovely food and service. Table was right in front of bar. It kind of feels like you are in every ones way. Should have asked for a quieter table.
