A fantastic review from Valentine’s Day

Wow, what a fabulous review, we are overwhelmed, thank you

Love was in the air – and in the kitchen!
It is always a pleasure to visit The Crown at Northill, whether simply for a drink, a lunchtime bar “snack”, or to take advantage of the excellent restaurant. The welcome is always, warm, friendly and genuine. If you are a beer drinker (which I’m not!) there is a wide range of beers to satisfy the needs of any aficionado (my beer-drinking buddies confirm this), and if you enjoy good wine you will find a comprehensive cellar to suit the most discerning palate. The food is always interesting, inviting and scrumptious!

Last night, my wife and I had the pleasure and privilege to enjoy the most sublime meal, created to celebrate the Feast of St Valentine. There were six wonderful choices for each course – seven for mains – and such was the array presented to we diners that it was indeed difficult to make a decision…… but we ultimately managed to do so! We were not disappointed. Clearly, Chef Adrian was on fire with love in his heart!

Our meals were quite superb and we accompanied them with the Cuvee Heritage Rose Brut, an Italian ‘fizz’ that was quite delicious and made a very pleasant change from the usual – and enjoyable Prosecco. Thoroughly recommended. This was definitely dining at its finest.

Led by Victoria and Marian, the young ladies who looked after us were friendly and attentive without in any way being intrusive. Great service that was an enhancement to our meal.

The Crown is very ‘special’ and an absolute shining star in gastronomic Bedfordshire.
Dining there is a joyous experience. If you have yet to first….. go soon!

Valentine’s Menu 2019. Show that special person in your life just how much you love them 💕💕
