Congratulations, Big Phil. Looking forward to seeing you there.

I always fancied making the Crown my local (particularly under the first post-gentrification management), but it never opened at weekends.

Are you going to change that?

Vege options at the mo are

Sweet potao, goats cheese and spinach pie, serevd with mash ( we use butter in mash, but can do batch without or with olive oil if you prefer), and steamed vegetables.

Penne Arrabita penne topped with tomato, basil and garlic sauce, served with side of garlic bread

Bruchetta buffalo mozzerella and tomato on Ciabatta, drizzled with basil and olive oil, ( under the grill for about 2 mins)

Have been to the Crown a couple of times since you took over and have to say food is ace! Always had excellent service and liked the new food choices.

Only criticism was a need for clarification about what you could order from the boards at what times...but then some of us need to wear glasses

Thanks for that, just looked at the blackboards and yes , toatlly agree with you, will clear them up before tomorrow opening.

We will be open weekend from 15-16 jan next year, we are using weekends to do repairs , repaints and other bits for now.

had a good little crowd in tonight and managed to drain a cask of adnams old ale, only 1 cask of this left before we move on to some ringwood brewery beers. remember adnams bitter is always on as our house ale.

also looking for a quiz master if anyone is interested.

cheers all , have a great week
