We have a love of food at the Crown that is reflected in four distinct ways. The first is that everything that can be homemade is homemade. The second is that we source the finest ingredients locally wherever possible. For example, our meat comes from Padbury Meats and most of our herbs comes from our own garden. The third is that, where we cannot source locally we pay special attention to the environmental impact of the source. For example, all our fish comes from New Wave which insures it is both fresh and sustainable. The fourth is a commitment to seasonality which is reflected in our menus, which change frequently.
The delicious and affordable lunch menu is available Tuesday – Friday, choose something ligh from a Panini, baguette or wrap or a pub classic 6oz Beef Burger, Brioche Bun, Smoked Applewood Cheddar, Bacon, Salad, Pickles & Triple Cooked Chips. The Crown A La Carte covers a broad range of traditional pub favourites from Beer Battered Fish & Chips through to Confit Belly of Pork, Sausage Roll, Cider Fondant Potato, Caramelised Apple Puree, Curly Kale, Pork Jus. Our Sunday lunch always has at least a choice of 3 roasts and allows our Chef and his team to really express their skill and creativity. In addition to this we have a Children’s Menu and occasional seasonal specials. These specials only last as long as the produce, which can be as little as a week. Finally, we always have a vegetarian selection and we’re very happy to cater for any specific dietary requirements, but would ask that you discuss these when booking a table.
Our approach to the Wine List is made up of three elements. The first is food paring. The second is about making the effort to offer something really interesting and the third is to ensure that there is sufficient range to meet different price expectations. We think we have achieved this with the help of our three main suppliers and we believe that we can match a wine to everything we serve that has a come from a vineyard that has a story worth telling and a wine worth drinking.5
