The Crown Country Inn was awarded 2 AA Rosettes for the quality of their food in October 2006 and every
year since. We have twice won "Best Restaurant" at the Deliciously Shropshire Good Eating awards. The
restaurant was also "highly commended" at the Heart of England "Food and Drink Excellence" awards in the "Best Restaurant using Local Produce" category.
We are the only pub in Shropshire to be featured in the GastroPub Cookbook by Diana Henry, who called the Crown "a shrine to local food producers and farmers."
We are also featured in the Real Ale Pub Guide, the Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide, the AA Pub Guide, the AA Bed and Breakfast Guide and Which Good Food Guide.

“Best food and service for ages. Book nd go.”
"Lots of restaurants and gastro inns do a decent job these days,thanks partly to Trip Advisor. You gotta be good to stand out, and The Crown does that. Took the three course menu. Complimentary dips followed by chicken liver pate with chutney, then tender slow cooked belly of pork, ending with a creme brûlée. Couple of pints of local ale all for about £35. Everyone else more than happy with their choices. Service was perfecto. Surroundings lovely, albeit in the middle of nowhere and had to phone for directions. Ample parking. At this point I would like to say something bad so that you know I am being objective...I cannot. It was superb. Book and go !"

“Stopped for lunch on a wet Winter day and found Summer inside......................”
"...The menu was outstanding offering gourmet Fayre and I indulged with three courses and each was better than the first,apparently the restaurant has been awarded Masterchef of Great Britain which I think is as good as Michelin star.I am not going to mention the menu as I believe its changes regularly.Also offered are short breaks,romantic weekend and just fabulous food,if you wonder what I rave about go and try it for yourself,like I mentioned walking in the door in Winter I left feeling I had found the summer.............Congratulations to proprietors: Jane and Richard Arnold,I will be back......."
