First time visiting The Crown after moving down from the Midlands to Milford on Sea. Great welcome on arrival at the bar by Debbie. Couldn't have been more helpful in letting us choose a table. Excellent service from start to finish. Both had steaks; one ribeye and one rump. Cooked to perfection and served with fab chips and onion rings.... More

Love the revamp, mum had the Cesar salad with salmon(different options available) and I had the beetroot and feta salad with salmon(different options available). We had the mini puddings to follow. I also had a lovely coffee. The only drawback was no hot water in the loo. Staff friendly and helpful.

Being local we decided to visit The Crown following its refurbishment . Our expectations were high. We were mistaken. We have visited before about five tiimes despite living in the village for fifteen years on each occasion something went wrong and this time was no different. We ordered from the "Specials" menu - beef curry and a mixed grill. The... More

I booked online for dinner for five at 6.30pm. Probably my first mistake but when I telephoned at 12.30pm a message advised there was nobody available to attend the telephone. Arriving at the restaurant we were shown to a table for eight ouside the gents lavatory. Apparently no other table was available because half the restaurant was in darkness due... More

The pub has recently been refurbished and is looking good inside and out! A warm welcome from the staff and a great table in the window for six of us. An excellent menu, lots of options and all reasonably priced. Five of us had the 28 day beef which was very tasty, lots of vegetables and plenty of gravy. The... More

Went to visit the crown yesterday 8/5/17 for dinner, had a warm welcome and was asked if we would like a drink and some food. The barman was very chatty and the ladies were very welcoming, helped my daughter to cut her pizza and gave her some colouring crayons to colour her picture. There wasn't a long wait for food...

From the outside, it looks like a lovely characterful pub with a large, inviting, grassy garden, so I stopped by for lunch. I was tempted by the Specials board and opted for the chicken linguine. The service behind the bar was friendly and prompt. Unfortunately, when the food arrived, the portions were VERY mean to say the least. I mean,... More
