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.

Service excellent, Food very good. Sat in courtyard - again very good.
Our lunch experience was a gift so not totally sure of value.
However we did find the menu was limited for choice & heavily biased on Pizzas.
Hope this helps

Food was great and the staff friendly. Service was a bit slow taking drinks orders. The diners at the table behind us had a dog that did not like face masks and it barked loudly and snarled at the staff when they approached it which was quite unnerving. Overall we had a great time as the cocktails are really good.
