The Old Crown used to be famous for its very large portions. It did roaring business then. Times have changed, for a while the tenants found it very difficult to make ends meet because of the terms forced on them by the pub chain landlords, but at the moment The Old Crown seems to be surviving.
The most recent change of decor has worsened the
character for me (the pictures are some time back.)
The food isn't as special as it was a year or so
back. But it's reasonably close, and it offers a
different menu to the other places we go.
