Ley Hill, Chesham, HP5 1UY

Set on the edge of Ley Hill’s village green in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside, The Crown is a popular haunt for locals, as well as an enticing stopping point for those passing through the area. A log fire gives a warm welcome to all who enter, as does the team assembled by landlord Rob Hoy – a frequent visitor of the venue before he took charge.

Long-standing chef Anna Svensson and her team have been at The Crown for ten years, serving up generous portions of delicious, fresh and locally sourced food. Sharing boards, small plates and sandwiches complement an eclectic selection of mains, as well as an enticing choice of daily specials, providing a brand-new dining experience with each visit. On this occasion, I chose a tasty leek and potato soup with rustic bread, while my partner opted for the artichoke puff pastry tart with a black olive and basil tapenade. Calf’s liver and bacon with mashed potato, vegetables and onion gravy followed for our mains along with Chagyu steak (a locally cross-bred French Charolais and Japanese wagyu cattle), with sweet potato chips, Savoy cabbage and creamy mushroom sauce. Our scrumptious meal was brought to an end with a delectable mince pie crème brûlée and homemade ice cream. A well-stocked bar including guest ales and traditional still ciders, excellent food and a calendar full of events makes The Crown a great place to while away an evening.
