Some pictures from an outstanding and exceptionally good value lunch.
Although aware of them due to the Michelin Star, The Crown came to my particular attention thanks to the review by MO’L in The Guardian (here). I loved the idea that dad, Simon Bonwick, works alone in the kitchen, while a gaggle of his nine offspring work front of house.
The Crown is one of those places that my wife and I both adored from the moment we entered and then fell completely head over heels with once we’d eaten.
Michelin say, “The Crown is very personally and passionately run by the Bonwick family and comes with a small bar and two intimate, open-fired dining rooms. The refined, deftly prepared dishes - six per course - are decided upon daily; the options are diverse and appealing, with flavours clearly defined.’
