Sunday lunch - nice pub with good atmosphere. But overpriced, poor food. Roast beef was good, but roast potatoes were hard and barely roasted, thrice cooked chips were dry and stale. What's wrong with cooking them once? Yorkshire puds like cardboard and watery gravy. In all very disappointing!

Just moved to Arlesey and wanted to check out the pub grub in the area, I'm soooo happy I chose this one. After reading the recent reviews I was a bit hesitant but looked at the extensive detailed menu and photos of the place and decided that this was the place. I went on tuesday afternoon with my mum.

Booked this over the web, sent a question ref times for the menus and got a really speedy response. Met my friend there for lunch , lovely relaxing atmosphere , staff were very attentive but is a subtle way. Really enjoyed the visit and the food was good.

The food was tasty and was also very well presented. On the whole though I thought the prices were rather high for some of the menu items.

Food was good. My wife had the crown burger which she really enjoyed, I had ribeye steak which was cooked nearly to my liking. When ordering I was asked if I'd like a sauce with my steak which I said yes to not realising it would cost me an extra £2.50. Seeing as the steak cost £23 I think it's... More

Came in for a meal in the restaurant with friends a few weeks ago, I had the pie of the day which was nice, friendly waitress which meet all our needs think her name was Naomi?? The only thing that let our visit down was that we could hear lots of shouting and bad language coming from the kitchen. Which... More

We called in for lunch before going to nearby Champneys. Ordered a baked beetroot and goats cheese salad - utter joke - £11.50 for just leaves, bit of crumbled cheese and a few chunks of beetroot. How can anyone think that is a meal and that this price is fair. The pub is nice inside but this food was a... More

Not one of the best eating holes in the area if you are seeking a good cuisine. As all the foods are pre prepared and dug out of the freezer and blasted in a microwave - I presume.This is mainly a drinkers pub . . . being in a chain its not seeking clientele with taste buds . . .... More

Hi Colin *Pre-prepared foods..fixed menus change seasonally" What a stupid, idiotic review to receive, when did you last come into The Crown in Henlow? Do you realise how hurtful and spiteful these types of comments are to businesses like ours?, we are not in a chain and certainly don't use microwaves. I note you wrote 13 reviews, on the 11th...

Had an enjoyable birthday meal out here last month. Enjoyed by all the family. A recommendation on the wine is the red Jimmy Anderson Numbers Collection. Very good indeed but hard to buy elsewhere online if you like it like we did.

Completely overpriced. Paid £11.99 for a scallop starter on the special menu which consisted of 2 scallops and a piece of pork-like stuffing, and £3.50 for 8 lettuce leaves as a side. The mains were better - my husband had steak which was very good. Waitress forgot bread and condiments despite asking if we wanted any- not the service I... More
