The Crown and Castle

Lunch Monday-Saturday

This highly approachable, casual lunch menu is served from Monday to Saturday, but not on Sundays. Please note we do NOT take bookings, except for parties of 5 people or more (with 10 our absolute maximum).  It’s first-come, first-served but please be reassured that you will always get a table, especially during the winter months. There is no specific children’s menu available but there are lots of dishes which are entirely suitable. The medium-sized dishes are perfect for smaller appetites.

Sunday lunch


We definitely recommend you book for Sunday lunch. The main course price buys either a starter or dessert as well (click below for a sample menu). Main courses include our very popular 28-day, dry-aged Aberdeen Angus roast sirloin of beef with all the traditional trimmings. Because we don’t ask customers to pre-order*, the beef can run out so we recommend an earlier rather than later time of arrival should you have set your heart on it. A menu for children of 8 years or under is also available – please see below.

(*We did try this, but it didn’t work as too many guests changed their mind when they saw the full menu!)

Evening A La Carte

Our dinner a la carte evolves throughout the week, so these are just three sample menus that reflect the sort of food we cook and the prices we charge. Please note that resident guests on dinner, bed and breakfast rates are free to choose any starter, main course or pudding from the a la carte – either 2 courses or 3 courses, depending on the package booked.

Festive or special menus

It goes without saying that there are always special menus for festive occasions such as Christmas (see below), New Year and St. Valentine’s day. Please note that while the menus for Christmas Day lunch, Boxing Day brunch, New Year’s Eve dinner and New Year’s Day brunch may well have the odd vegetarian dish on them, we do not provide a separate vegetarian or vegan menu, with its usual wide choice, on these four occasions. The menus below may undergo the odd change before Christmas and NYE arrive but will be substantially the same.

Throughout the rest of the year we are always happy to construct a special menu for parties celebrating a special occasion. (NB the maximum number of guests is ten, unless the whole hotel is taken.)


Breakfast is served in the Trinity from 8.00 – 9.45 am (last orders). Everything hot is cooked to order, so there could be a wait on a very busy, all-down-at-once morning. However, this has to better better than the gloom of a dried up buffet breakfast, don’t you think? Non-residents are welcome to have breakfast with us as long as they book in advance. This is charged at £18.50 (free choice) per person . Room service continental breakfast is served between 8.00 – 10.30 am (last orders).
