The Crown Inn
The Crown Inn Chiddingfold Reviews
Feb 26, 2007
The Crown Inn is a pub in Chiddingfold that has quite a bit of history to it. Because it is several centuries old it is in a really beautiful half-timbered building. Apparently, in the past even the monarch stayed there on occasion, although I have forgotten which King or Queen it was.
Unfortunately, all this history doesn't really help the place very much today. The tables are sticky even after they were wiped and the food is absolutely atrocious! I am shocked to have to say this but the burgers in McDonalds are better than those served here. At least in McDonalds they TRY and put some lettuce in. The staff seem a bit confused, either not noticing you at all, or constantly asking you whether you want something even though you told their three colleagues already that you would appreciate more time.
What is good though is an Irish band (called "The Hanging Tree") that sometimes comes to play. It's definitely worth seeing and as long as you only have a drink it should be fine. Usually the place is packed when they are playing, especially (obviously) on St Patrick's Day.
