"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 house offers well sourced ingredients from France and some of the UK’s best independent food and Wine producers, ensuring a wholly English-French experience. A smart, casual and informative service directed by Dean awaits you. Deans journey to the Crown is remarkable one. Six years with the Waterside Inn, Bray. A year at Les Pres de Eugenie, in France. A year with Aubergine Restaurant and a number of years with the Hand and Flowers.


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 entry in the (have to be in) Sawday's guide. While we are not conscious of guide approval, subconsciously it's great being understood!!!


We have no faith in Tripadvisor, we consider it the worst kind of review of its type and pay no attention to it at all!


Our Tiny bar: Please no pushchairs or Children under 12 as we are a tiny place. Children over 12 are fine in the dining room, but perhaps not in the bar area.


Also we only feel like doing child's portions of our really nice grub, so sorry you will not find a child’s menu! I hope you will continue to enjoy our earnest and intense passion for our House and its ways?


See you soon then?



Pondering by the fire in a chilly spring, no news is good news!!!

Opening Times



Closed Sunday and Monday


Our house offers Lunch from 12.30pm till 1.15pm

on a Wednesday to Saturday.


We open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday

6.30pm - onwards.




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



"Ghost Lovers"

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???
