The Crown- Christchurch
Booked the restaurant/pub over OpenTable.
All confirmed. Happy Days.
A few hours later I was called by The Crown to say they could not honour the appointment because they were fully booked.
Not sure where the problem lies in reality but, either way, my OpeTable-based experience with The Crown was as bad as it could be.
So my advice would be to book directly.
Though this shouldn’t really be be necessary.
Visited the crown previously and really enjoyed it but it seems to have gone downhill. Had the worst roast potatoes I have ever tasted.
Everything tasted like it had been reheated.
The Sunday lunch would have been better if it had been hotter and we would have liked sharper knives to cut the beef!!
A bit disappointing this time, hard cabbage, indescribable carrots , attention to detail required. An establishment can soon loose customers, it would be a shame for a rural venue.
Visited lots of times and always been pleased until Saturday evening.. My son forgot his ID and even though he didn’t expect an alcoholic drink the bar staff and manager were very off hand to the point of rude. Food average - burger undercooked and old salad (wilted). No one asked if we would like any sauces etc. No waitress assigned to our table. Very dissatisfied overall.
Good polite friendly service. Good value food though short on fresh veg. House wine very drinkable.
For a Saturday night, the restaurant was not busy and they seemed understaffed. The meal took about half an hour to arrive. The steaks were cold.
45 minute wait for food, 2 out of 4 meals were incorrect
Have eaten here a few times. A little on the expensive side unless you go for their set meals. Get atmosphere, cosy, beamed pub. Waitress rather sharp in her attitude and disappointed that salad was not an option instead of vegetables- so no side dish given. Problems with obtaining extra bread for starters too. Otherwise food very good and substantial.
Good choice of food no specials which was a shame. Selected two dishes but was informed mushrooms were included in sauce/item but this was not written on the description.
good for a last minute outing, my daughter in law found it dark, soup ration was poor, turkey was bland and the waitress reported back to us three times with out of stock, our booking was 12.30 Sunday so Sat evening must have been busy ! will maybe come again but would not want to use for showing off .
