We had a lovely meal, good service and excellent choice of wine. The landlord is very interesting and knowledgable about his wines and spirits. A six hundred year old building......he was telling us, with a lovely outlook. Well worth a visit.

The Crown never fails to deliver a quality experience. Shaun and his wife set the bar very high, with no apology, but without any pretension. They know what they’re talking about, and when it comes to food and drink, they know how to make it...More
