The Crown and Castle

Reservations is open from 8.30am until 9.30pm. If you require anything different from the norm – for example sheets and blankets (rather than duvets) or you are bringing a dog or have special dietary needs – then please do call us on 01394 450205 to make sure all these details are noted and you are in the right room at the best rate available. Otherwise, please do use our own booking button, above.

Please be aware the Crown and Castle is not a hotel but a restaurant with (21) comfortable rooms. Our clientele comprises individuals and couples who appreciate a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere with thoughtful, smiling service, and interesting food with an authentic British or Italian bias. We are really not suitable for large groups, those attending local weddings or businessmen requiring full-on office facilities.


To mitigate misunderstandings ....

Bed and breakfast terms are available from Sunday to Thursday while Friday and Saturday are only sold as a 2-night dinner, bed and breakfast stay.

WEDDING GUESTS: we cannot offer accommodation to guests attending local weddings. Experience has shown a dislocation between their needs and those of our regular guests, all of whom value the C&C for its peaceful ambience. We know this policy can incur dismay or even rancour, but we must protect those who support us year in, year out, and value what we provide.

DOGS: We welcome a maximum of two well-behaved, house-trained dogs (over 6 months old) per each of the five dedicated pet-friendly Garden rooms. We must be notified at the time of booking of any accompanying dogs and reserve the right to turn away anyone who has not reserved the correct room . Please also note that from May to September dogs may not be left in cars at any time as our car park is in full sun throughout the day.

Dogs are welcome in the Bar, or to stay in the bedroom unattended, and we have one (bookable) doggie table in the restaurant area. Please see Booking Information for other information.

CHILDREN: we welcome children of any age in the restaurant at lunchtime but only those over 8 years old in the hotel and at dinner time. Please see Booking Information for full details.

CAR PARKING: not only are we 3 spaces short when we are full, our spaces are definitely not commodious. Guests with big 4x4s or van-type vehicles, as well as late-arriving guests, may be asked to use the Castle car park with which we have a special arrangement – it is only 60 metres or so away. Please drop off your luggage at reception first and collect a C&C car parking sticker to display in your windscreen.

WIFI: we offer FREE fibre broadband wifi to those staying with us but please be aware that the use of tablets and mobile phones is actively discouraged during lunch and dinner. (Talk to each other, for ***’s sake!)

GROUP BOOKINGS: a maximum of five rooms can be booked for any one night, with a maximum of ten guests at any one time. Lunch or dinner will be served in our private dining room, the Parlour. Please see Booking Information for full booking and cancellation terms.
