I have eaten at the pub on a few occasions now and i find that the food and drink is reasonably priced. The carvery runs 7 days per week and on all the days that i have been it seems to be well organised and there's a good selection of Meat and Vegetables. The pub has a pleasant family friendly...

The all you can eat breakfast buffet is very good value. After a long walk, It's hard to fault, fill up on bacon, sausages, fried eggs etc, as much tea or coffee, plus toast and jam for pud, a once in a while treat for sure. The Sunday carvery is all top value, go for a bit of each meat,... More

Went with the family for our Sunday Lunch as there was a carvery meal on offer. They had 3 meats on offer and you could have a "slice" of each if wanted. Along with roast and mashed potatoes there was a fine selection of vegetables on offer. At £7.70 and kids charged £1 it was excellent value. If you didn't... More

Visited for tea tonight and can't explain our disappointment. Food had clearly sat there all day , everything dry and stale . Turkey was inedible it was so dry . Frozen Yorkshire puddings . I wish I had a took photos - worst meal we have had in a long long time Real shame this place has gone down hill.

We always go to a Crown Carvery if there is one in the area. My husband had a voucher to spend for his birthday, so really enjoyed the experience. Only downfall is the ice cream maker noise.

Been here many times now as the carvery is always good, and well worth the 4.49 you pay, went today and it was absolutely outstanding. Food all fresh and hot, friendly staff and a great atmosphere!
