This was my sixth visit to the Crown Inn which must tell that I like the place. The food is far superior to so called gastropubs and the atmosphere is really good. I will be visiting again soon.
Excellent Sunday lunch with a wide variety on the menu to suit all choices Friendly service and great selection of wines and beers Would recommend to all
Fabulous place to eat and stay and we always go back for Sunday lunch. Meals are first class and so are the staff. Great wine list at reasonable prices.
First time we have been here.Will be coming again excellent service and made very welcome.thank you to your brilliant staff hope to see you soon
My family and friends have visited the Crown on many many occasions in the past. I had booked the Crown as my friend was visiting from South Yorkshire (she herself has visited before and brought friends who have also thoroughly enjoyed their visit - in fact two of her friends had a meal at the Crown last night on their return from Stockton to south yorkshire). However on this occasion unfortunately it was not to be. 1, I myself ordered crab soup which came after around 10 minutes which was fine - however the spoon didn't arrive until much much later and after the second time of asking. the soup was delicious. 2. My friend ordered soufflé which was way below the mark. ( we now appreciate that it should have been sent back but my friend didn't want to embarrass me) 3. We both ordered fish pie with Samphire which was exceptionally salty and was garnished with a salty butter also - my friend left hers and I left some of it. The fish pie itself was very good and most enjoyable. 4. I must confess that the sweet menu was exceptional but we decided not to order 5. We requested the bill which didn't arrive - therefore requested again from another member of staff and it appeared immediately. We waited again for the money to be collected and in the end I took it to the bar on our way out with no acknowledgement whatsoever and I just left the money on the bar.
This was our first visit to this excellent eatery. We were really impressed - in fact so much so that we cancelled a reservation we had made for the following Saturday at another Inn with some friends and booked at the Crown instead! I had the souffle which was divine followed by the lamb whereas my partner had the gravalax followed by the cod. However our eyes were drawn to the Cote de Beouf the couple on the next table were enjoying and intend to put that on our list!
The location and pub itself is really welcoming and homely. We had one of the last reservations of the day and we felt as though we were being rushed through. My husband wasn't given long to choose his beer when we first arrived. The table top was sticky and covered in crumbs when we sat down. We hadn't finished our starter and were asked by the waiter if we had finished so we felt as though we should hurry up and eat - not a good feeling, although the starter was lovely. The main courses weren't large portions and were also not cheap so we felt a little short-changed. The pudding was really good and well presented. The delivery of the food was a little slap dash and also felt rushed. We are not quite sure how the pub is deserving of its 5 rating. Maybe the service is better if you get there earlier. not sure if we will go back.
Very welcoming immediately on arrival. Nice atmosphere in a busy dining room. Obviously popular. Good choice of beer. Only hiccup was the chef could not get the pastry right on my Dales pie. I was kept aware of this problem and the delay. That in itself no problem but perhaps we should have been offered another drink or a small discount. The pie on arrival only had its pastry lid not its surrounds but was delicious as was my wife's fish pie.
It was really busy when we arrived, however, as it was a nice day, we were able to sit out in the garden area which was very pretty. We were shown to our table about 15 minutes over due, but that was fine as we weren't in a rush. The meal was absolutely worth the wait and the staff were very nice and friendly.
Another wonderful visit to the Crown Inn at Roecliffe. We always call in on our outward journey on holiday to the Yorkshire Dales or Northumberland. It has become the perfect start to our holiday. We had an excellent meal, the crab soup and fish pie were sublime. Excellent service too. We will definitely be calling in again soon!
