A good lunch can be many things. Hosted by chef Simon Bonwick and his family, lunch at The Crown is always an ultimately joyous and heart-warming affair.
Offering an outrageously splendid value for money, daily changing menu chosi, Simon’s love of food and cookery is evident in every morsel that leaves his solo-manned kitchen. Passionately prepared with classical skills, he always gets the best from quality local, British and French produce.
