New Gluten Free Menu (In addition to our regular menu)

Good afternoon Victoria,

Just thought I would let you know how impressed I was with the new gluten free menu.  It is by far the best I have seen and together with the service and cooking, I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

Needless to say, I have input a new review on tripadvisor and on my favourite gluten free eating website as well as telling my colleagues at work who suffer with the same condition. We have ongoing discussions about the problems of gluten intolerance, and it is nice to have an upbeat comment to throw in the pot.

Please accept my thanks to you personally, and pass them onto the staff, who were very friendly and made us feel most welcome.

Nina and Chris’s Wedding Review

Wedding 1 Wedding 2

On 30th July the Crown hosted our wedding reception and it was absolutely outstanding!! Victoria and Adrian worked really hard for us for the 9 months preceding to get all our requirements and ensure it was a spectacular event for us. The food was wonderful and so many of our guests commented on how good it was. The setting was beautiful and made it a really relaxed event for us as everyone could mill around on the grass and pop into the pub in addition to being in our marquee. The Crown worked directly with the marquee provider and arranged additional luxury portaloos for us. They liaised with our additional suppliers (flowers, cake, photographer, band, decorator) in a highly professional manner. All of the waiting and bar staff were highly professional, attentive and great fun. Victoria and Neena set up all of our tables on the morning of the wedding and everyone went above and beyond for us throughout the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. I didn’t have a wedding planner and, working with the Crown, I certainly didn’t need one. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and we’d highly recommend the Crown if you’re looking to host your wedding or large event in a beautiful, rural, friendly and relaxed space. Thank you so much!

Once upon a Time Ball we hosted

“Everything was perfect, the preparations ran smoothly with no hassles, Victoria and Adrian knew exactly what to do, and exactly what we would want for a successful evening, their staff on the night were incredible. The food was amazing! there was plenty to go around, and I had no complaints about the beer either.

We had a fabulous function and will be doing it again ;-)”15.8.15 032 15.8.15 030
