A – Recommended Dining Inn

We all really enjoyed the weekend, food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful.  We would recommend your hotel to friends and family Mr Lynne Bridge 14-06-2011

 I would like to say a big "Thank You" to yourself and your staff for the excellent time we had at The Crown over this last week end.  Nothing was too much trouble and the staff we met - and those we didn't, who work behind the scenes preparing all that wonderful food, really did you proud. 

The ten of us in the party were all equally delighted with the welcome and quality of service which we received.  I know we would all be pleased to be able to stay at The Crown again, it's such a lovely and interesting place and will have no hesitation in recommending you, should the opportunity arise.

TripAdvisor -
The Crown has a delightful 'olde-worlde' atmosphere but it also has exceptionally good food, clean bathrooms with lashings of hot water, immaculate white bath towels and large comfortable beds with good fresh linen. I was alone but the staff made me feel very welcome and the service in the dining room (on a busy night) was courteous and efficient. The 'early-bird' menu was excellent value and I have paid far more elsewhere for food of lesser quality! After dinner I had a drink in the bar and chatted to some locals beside the huge log fire. A perfect evening as the rain lashed down outside. Breakfast was delicious and well-served. I wish I had booked to stay longer and will definitely be back. If you are looking for a standardised modern "chain" type hotel the Crown may not be for you; just leave it to those of us who enjoy and appreciate its quirky originality!
