Friends took us to Portpatrick and recommended eating in The Crown. It is a lovely old pub with plenty of atmosphere and friendly staff. There is a good choice of food at very reasonable prices. I had the Cullenskink, a first for me, and it was delicious and every body else enjoyed their meals. Definitely worth a visit.

We chose the Crown for a light lunch after a lovely walk in this beautiful location. I don't know how such simple food could have been done so badly. Three of us ordered panini melts and they were far from melting with the cheese still fridge cold. I had asked for one without tomatoes but they had been added, luckily... More

Had a quick drink here on a bank holiday Monday. Good service and the view from the outside tables is stunning. Great to sit and watch the world go by.

I visited the Crown for lunch on Wednesday 29 March and had been telling my friend who was visiting Portpatrick for the first time how good the seafood was and that she must try the mussels. When the mussels arrived they were tiny which was so disappointing. I ordered a ham and cheese panini which must have just been in... More

The Crown is still our favourite place to eat/drink in Portpatrick. A fine welcome, good range of food/drinks on offer and all delivered to a high standard. We do go elsewhere on occasion but always return to our favourite.

A warm friendly pub, great staff and service and spot on food. Dog friendly to boot. Seafood was perfect, chips homemade, vegetables just right and sweets so tasty, it was a pleasant change to eat at a place that gets it all right. The dog treats were a welcome touch as well😊 Highly recommended 👍

I recently visited The Crown for lunch and was very disappointed given the decent reviews. I don't normally score low on trip advisor as I like to see the positives but sadly this place could be so much better. We ate in the main bar and it's pretty filthy to be honest and the floor is gross. We ordered different... More
