The Crown has a long and interesting history; having been built in 1633, it was one of the first licensed premises in the country. The location is delightful, almost exactly equidistant between Stroud and Cirencester. You can eat by an open fire on a cold winter's day, or sit in the spacious gardens, looking out over the Golden Valley, when the weather is warm.

The food is all home cooked and local, and pleasingly dishes combine the traditional with the adventurous. I had seared pigeon with black pudding and spiced tomato chutney for my starter and my companion sampled poached smoked haddock, with parsley risotto and egg. I followed this with some delicious local Bibury trout with almonds, roasted crayfish, sauce vierge, minted baby tomatoes and chantenay c a rrots, and my companion had Hereford steer steak with hand-cut chips, Caesar salad, and on-the-vine tomatoes. Prices were consistent with starters ranging from £4 to £6 and mains averaging at £15.

The Crown has been under new management, with father and daughter team, The Vernons, at the helm since June last year. This successful duo also own Vernon's in The Courtyard, Montpellier Street in Cheltenham, and both restaurants support red tractor British farm assured meats and have a good range of wines and real ale to accompany your meal. Overall a fantastic experience, definitely to be repeated.
Open: Mon-Sun noon- 11pm
