Welcoming and cosy family pub,

mouth-watering food

We are a family-friendly, locally-loyal, dog-loving, passionate about food, professional team whose mission is to offer the best atmosphere to our customers. A proper cosy country pub, with plenty of character, where everybody is welcome. But...in our food offering we veer from the well-trodden path.

Our menu focuses on what is available now, first locally and then going further afield. So it changes most of the time every day and is relatively small.

Temporarily e are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. In the Crown Restaurant we offer a short menu of starters, mains and dessert for the time being, still staying true to our promise for high quality, well prepared food.

We are opening the Crown Garden with more relaxed setting and popular choice of dishes.

On Sundays we serve a traditional Sunday Lunch Roast Menu, which will also be available in the Crown Garden.

Take a look at our sample menus through the link at the top of the page.

We now need to collect contact details for each and every person in your booking party every time you book, and keep those for 21 days.

In the Crown Restaurant we have two seatings - at 6PM and at 8PM. Please book for these times respectively. To check availability please give us a call on the number below to find out if we can accommodate you.
