The Crown & Castle is a 2016 TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice winner!
The award is based on the reviews and opinions of the websites global travel community, and is the highest honour given by TripAdvisor.
St Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday and although it’s a High Day in our calendar we are not doing anything differently not least because its celebration seems to be increasingly informal – perhaps fuelled by a dislike of both the hype and price hike that so often surround it?!
If you would like to stay the night and enjoy a very nice 3-course a la carte dinner with free choice of dishes, coffee and chocolates, as well as full English breakfast on Monday morning, please go to our website, Special Offers, for full details. ... See MoreSee Less

With all our reservations (ha!) about TripAdvisor, it's always nice to get a pat on the shoulder. Romantics of the world might like to remember it's St Valentines next week – and we are not charging any premium for eating or staying!

Our kitchen team are doing a fantastic job but as we get increasingly busy we would like to lighten the load by employing another experienced, senior person. If you (or anyone you know) is at sous chef level and would like to join our nice, friendly chefs who are serious about food but happy in their work, please email email@example.com. Pay and conditions are as scrumptious as the food we cook. ... See MoreSee Less
@gilescoren Totally agree with his dismay at how many people use mobiles in restaurants when they could talk, look & just enjoy being. It's why we don't allow them in the restaurant at the Crown and Castle. ... See MoreSee Less
Nicola Bowen ReesWhen we stayed with you in October it was great to see everyone chatting to each other in the restaurant ... Not a texting finger or screen in sight ... Like the good old days!4 weeks ago · 7

April TaylorSorry but then I would not use your restaurant. That one call could be s cry for help and really important4 weeks ago
Nicola Bowen ReesGo to a restaurant these days and everyone is texting or checking their mobiles. It is rude to the people you're with and irritating to others. If you're expecting an important call be discreet and take it outside.4 weeks ago · 4

Cathy JacksonToo right. What is this obsession with having to be constantly entertained by technology every waking moment? And I'd rather not be distracted from my food too when I'm in a restaurant or hotel. It happens enough at work, so when I'm not at work I don't want distractions/interruptions when I'm eating especially in a high quality restaurant.4 weeks ago
Kat AndrewsMy mobile is last thing on my mind when I go out. If a family member is very ill I either dont go out and go be with them or give contact details to all who need them. I like to go out and enjoy company of others and not be distracted by my phone. I will however check for any important messages when on my way home or when home.4 weeks ago · 2
Shirley DeeThank the lord for some sanity. The Crown and Castle is a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting. The idea of going out with people is to sit around the table enjoying lovely food and interesting conversation. Well done you!!!!!!!!!!!!!4 weeks ago · 2
Thank you to all our lovely regular Christmas guests who make the 3-night stay into such a happy house party. I will now try and post some photos properly (in case you got the last rubbishy posting!) ... See MoreSee Less
Okay, this is the silliest C&C Christmas cake I've made yet. Penguins trying to get back to their nests come up against a new problem, not yet envisaged by David Attenborough - a posse of polar bears looking for a football match. Told you it was very silly. ... See MoreSee Less
The Christmas cake now covered in over 2kg home-made marzipan, waiting for final icing on Sunday. This year even sillier than usual. (Who knew polar bears and penguins liked football?) ... See MoreSee Less
A really nice atmosphere for our Tuscan dinner tonight with lots of great compliments for Char, Rob and Lucy's cooking. (Ably supported by Tim, Emily, Kerri, Margaux and Danielle front of house, btw, and me.) We particularly enjoyed this exchange between a wife and husband, "Gosh that was fantastic - I've never tasted veal like it." Says he, "No, because it was venison." ... See MoreSee Less
Our first Tuscan Treat dinner was hugely enjoyed. There are a couple of tables left for next Tuesday (1st) so give us a call if you'd like to eat some terrific Italian food with wonderful matching wines.
