"I like doing what I am doing here at The Crown.
Cooking and serving the kind of food I like to eat"
"whatever makes me laugh and whatever makes me happy
is what you'll find on the menu"
Our pub restaurant offers well sourced ingredients from France and some of the UK’s best independent food and Wine producers, ensuring a decent British-French experience.
Service is smart, casual and informative and directed by Dean. Dean is well known and respected, as a first class Maitre' d throughout our industry and we like that. He is helped out by the rest of the Bonwick family.
The Crown is our little house and we don't just like it, "WE BLOODY LOVE IT, WE ARE MAD ABOUT IT!" Sometimes this comes across as mildly eccentric, yet, this is our way of delivering the very best of our offer.
Food Awards and Reviews: dad has won a Michelin Star for his food, we also have a respectable score in the Good Food Guide and this 2018 we are there BEST UK pub restaurant. While we are not conscious of guide approval, subconsciously it's great being understood!
Tripadvisor; We have no faith in it, we don't read it. In fact we consider it the worst kind of review of its type and pay no attention to it all!
Our Tiny bar: Please, no pushchairs or Children under 12 as we are a tiny place.
There is no child's menu and children over 12 are fine in the dining room, but perhaps not in the bar area.
We look forward to warmly welcoming you soon perhaps.
Pondering by the fire in a chilly spring, no news is good news!!!

We have seen a huge increase recently of customers failing to inform us of dietary requirement,
for your satisfaction you MUST inform us at the time of booking to ensure your needs are met.
Failure to do so will inevitably and sadly leave your choice of dishes from the menu extremely limited.
A vegetarian option is available with prior notice at the time of booking, because our menu consists of predominantly meat and fish.
Thank you. X
The haunting apparition of a small bearded man with a pony has been sighted in the Bar, also the same chap without the pony seems to be pottering about a bit in the Cellars???
