We had the carvery, choice of beef or turkey. The vegetables were very hot, with good range of roast potatoes, green beans, carrots, parsnips etc. Meat was nicely cooked and the meal was delicious. Finished up with ice cream, chocolate tart & trifle.

Staff were pleased to see us and cheerful and helpful.

Excellent Sunday Carvery Lunch and terrific cauliflower cheese! Large portions of meat and self service vegetable with a very good choice. Very friendly staff. The owners have only been here for two weeks and they have carried out a good refurbishment. Recommended.

My family and I (table of 20!) had a fantastic evening last night at The Crown. The staff were friendly and extremely attentive, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect. A truly great venue for a family get together! We will definitely be returning! Well done to Jeremy, Megan and the team!
