The Crown is a food lover's haven in the historic village of Old Basing. Although it may look like any other village pub, what makes The Crown shine is its fabulous food. The Crown is a family-run business that has been listed for three consecutive years in Michelin Eating Out in Pubs and is one of the Good Food Guide's top 50 pubs in the country. The head chef, Tom Wilson, trained at Lainston House Hotel near Winchester. The knowledgeable front-of-house team does a superb job ensuring everyone feels welcome.

The menus are pleasingly simple, offering classic, flavoursome food that reflects a thoughtful and well-organised kitchen. Everything is homemade, from the complimentary flavoured bread and spicy Crown ketchup, to the fudge served with an outstanding selection of liqueur coffees. Dishes are made in the state-of-the-art kitchen using produce from quality suppliers, most of which are in Hampshire. The bar lunch menu features platters, light bites and Crown classics, while the seasonal main menu includes starters like homemade Scotch eggs, and salmon rillettes with pickled beetroot, horseradish cream, watercress and crispy bread shards. Main courses range from fresh fish of the day to the popular pork collar. Be sure to save room for pudding - the Earl Grey tea panna cotta is a highlight. A seasonal cocktail menu and selection of wines from around the world complement the food offering - you can even enjoy your tipple outside in the pretty garden if the weather is fine. Quite simply, The Crown is a gem of a pub
