Review : The Crown



Date of visit: January 2013

Once again The Vintage Inn Group did not disappoint.  We made use of one of the special discount vouchers that we had received on our visit to The Fish and Eels.  The setting of The Crown is lovely and nestled alongside a lovely river.  The Crown Inn has served Broxbourne for several hundred years, dating back to the 1700's. Popular with Victorian day-trippers, the inn was also used by local companies who liked their employees to play sports on the adjacent gardens. The current building was constructed in the 1930s, replacing The Old Crown Hotel.  On walking into the restaurant, you already feel relaxed and you just know that it is going to be a good evening.   The service was prompt and we were shown to a table, drinks orders were taken and we were left to decide on what delights we would have for dinner.

David opted for one of his favourites a Mixed Grill at £14.95, lamb cutlet, rump steak, sausage, black pudding, white pudding, sweetcure bacon, egg, roasted flat mushroom, plum tomato, garden peas and seasoned chips.  It did not take him long to devour it.  It was tasty, but he still longs for South African meat, especially the beef.

Danielle ordered their Wild Boar and Chorizo Burger at £10.95, chargrilled in a soft bun with tomato, lettuce and mayonnaise, served with dressed slaw and seasoned chips.  She absolutely loved it.

I had their Hunters Chicken at  £8.99, grilled chicken breast topped with smoked cheddar, sweetcure bacon and barbecue sauce, served with seasoned chips and garden peas.  Very tasty, maybe a bit bland looking.

Overall Experience

Overall we had a lovely meal on a weeknight.  Would definetly recomend them, but don't expect Michellin Star food, just good old fashioned British Pub Grub.
