We all look forward to welcoming you to The Crown with a new sense of excitement.

Many of you will already know us from The Beehive at White Waltham where we have been greeting and feeding our visitors for the past eight years.

My aim has always been to offer beautiful food in an authentic English pub. Dishes that are heart-warming, seasonal, and packed with flavor. All I wanted was for our guests to return home happy and contented! This aim established our reputation and remains firmly in place today.

At The Crown, our hospitality will be based on exactly the same principles - seasoned, I hope, with a pinch of added ambition in the kitchen. And on the floor front-of-house, you will be greeted and looked after by members of my family - my wife Helena and her sister Alicia. Both have many years of experience in the trade, working initially in some of London’s top restaurants as well as running the Beehive.

My family and the Team hope to w

    If you're in the mood for a cosy country restaurant that delivers high quality food, this is the spot for you. The food is delicious and exceeded our expectations, from the homemade scotch eggs, the woodpigeon, Dorset snails, the cod, the chocolate fondant, t all amazing, I could go on! The staff are friendly, welcoming and attentive, without being overbearing, Alex in particular was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dinning experience. Definately worth a visit! We've already booked our next.

    This was my first visit to The Crown and I was very impressed by all aspects. It was quiet on Wednesday night and we got first class treatment in all respects. Sensibly they don’t try to offer the usual/standard fare but rather spécialisé in doing a few special things well. The liver dish was great but there were other temptations too. Lovely ambience and attentive and engaging service. I will be recommending it to friends who value quality.

    This was a favourite treat for us on a regular basis before the covid situation.. it’s been a couple years since our last visit and since everything is getting back to normality, although it has new owners we booked a table for last Saturday 8pm. It’s a 35min taxi ride both ways but was always a satisfying treat. So now the food from our visit….. bad. My starter was crab, garlic and MINT.. I was sooo curious because of the previous visits that I chose it.. Vile, my £40 ribeye steak was worse than a supermarket packet cut.. it was one third pure fat disguised in a deep heavy salty sauce, even if the steak was good, the sauce would’ve ruined it.. it was a heavy over salted and just overwhelming. The triple cooked fries were terrible, the worst I’ve ever had, they are crispy and tasteless, non stop crunch with no flavour.The venison was also way to salty but cooked perfectly, the salt content ruined it hugely.. we like to treat ourselves once in a while and hate complaining because it ruins the night but this is the worst place we have ever eaten, the bill was almost £300 plus £70 in Uber cabs. This place is charging top money for very bad food and an embarrassing wine list, literally all of them including the Du Pape are on Sainsbury’s shelves, the Pinot is way too bitter too. I hope this review is useful, this place is overpriced massively and even at half the price would still be disappointing, I’d much rather Wetherspoons any day compared to our visit.

    First time visiting in a long time. The service was great, atmosphere very friendly and helpful. All the food was enjoyable, well presented and really tasty. We enjoyed the snail starter and chicken and duck liver pate and for mains ribeye steak and venison. We shared the lemon meringue pie which was recommended along with the suggested dessert wine. A very enjoyable evening. We will be back.

    Its a nice place if you need a quiet place for a date which you want to talk to someone. Nice and cozy and good service. The only comment I have is the food is a little over priced. We had snails as starter which I found a bit salty, and steak as main which was very nice.

    We loved the relaxed feel of this restaurant it was like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. We will definitely return to try more dishes. I had Cornish Fish soup as a starter followed by Slowed cooked Rabbit in a mustard sauce -excellent. My wife decided on the three course set menu which she enjoyed and felt was exceptional value. Service was were very friendly and allowed time between each course, wines on the whole were very affordable.

    Food is exceptional. Delicious menu. Service warm and friendly. Just two caveats. The first: I prefer items on a menu to be individually priced, rather than an overall price for two courses. Second: and this can be said of most restaurants, the mark up on wine is exorbitant. Most diners know how much the bottle they chose costs in the real world. Most accept ( certainly post covid) that they will pay more. But, treble the price?

    Delicious food served by the delightful Christina . A quiet Tuesday evening meant there was a lack of buzz . Two course meal for four with only an aperitif and one bottle of house wine at £300 was a bit steep. We would hesitate to recommend it but the food is top notch.

    Cosy and charming little country gastropub. Very good food for reasonable (for the area) prices. Delicious lemon sole. Would’ve liked a wider variety of better priced wines - just because it’s higher end food doesn’t mean I want to pay £70 for decent bottle of white. But I’ll be back nevertheless.

    The wine was good but I was disappointed in the choice of flavoured gins. The bottled water was expensive. The food tasted good but the portion size for the main course was rather small. The coffee was only Luke warm so I ordered another one. The Anniversary treat at the end was good but again rather small.

    Overpriced, £50 for two courses with crumble and rice pudding as dessert options! £10 supplement charge on some dishes which didn't seem justified. Food well presented but average. Prix de fixe menu not available even though advertised on website. No soft drink/non alcoholic menu offered, only wine and cocktail menus.
