The Crown Playhatch
You’ll discover this charming 16th-century inn in the picturesque hamlet of Playhatch, offering a warm welcome, excellent food and superb accommodation.
With country comforts, home-cooked classics and decadent sharing plates, The Crown has a menu to match any occasion. Starters include The Crown’s own Scotch egg with crumbed boerewors sausage and sweet horseradish dressing, or the bruschetta with heritage tomato, vegan feta, basil and lemon oil dressing. The Crown’s legendary steaks are a must; the premium fillet, rib-eye and sirloin are all aged for 28 days, cooked to perfection and served with a rocket and red onion side salad and chunky chips. If you have room, make sure to try one of the indulgent dessert options – the duo of brownie and blondie comes with a rich dark chocolate and hot fudge sauce while the rhubarb and custard trifle is served with raspberry gel and crushed meringue.
On Sundays, the carvery is not to be missed. The Crown’s Sunday lunch comes with all the trimmings – the carvery meats are served with seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes and a Yorkshire pudding, all for £15. This family-friendly venue also has a dedicated children’s menu that includes favourites like fish and chips, macaroni cheese and a mixed plate of grilled chicken, Cheddar, bread, hummus and crudités.
If you’re looking to host an event, the olde worlde charm of the Barn, with its exposed beams and ample space in which to host, is available to hire for parties, meetings and weddings. This is the ideal spot for any special event and the team at The Crown will take care of everything for you, from dressing the room to planning your menu. Up to 40 people can be seated in the space and guests can then enjoy an overnight stay in one of the ten double bedrooms.
Conveniently located within easy reach of Reading, Henley-On-Thames and Maidenhead, The Crown is the perfect secret retreat where you can enjoy a relaxing dining experience. Unwind by the roaring log fire in the winter or sip a chilled glass of wine in the garden on a summer’s eve.
