Enclosed by the wild but pretty New Forest, The Crown – Christchurch enjoys a brilliant spot in the country, while remaining close to the town. The rustic feel, from the oak beams, the cosy log-fire and the pretty beer garden, influences the dependable classic British pub cuisine.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Crown menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Crown ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Crown is 10 minutes’ drive from Christchurch, or just 6 minutes from Hinton Admiral Train Station.

    Food took a long time to come, steak was very thick and rare in the middle when I asked for medium, ended up leaving meal.

    Although service was a little slow our waitress Sophie was excellent and kept us informed of progress all the time and even told us when she was going into the kitchen to help with our desserts as they were short staffed. She was really friendly and efficient.

    We visited on Father's Day so the restaurant and staff very busy however they took our order quickly and the food turned up quite shortly after that. Starters were excellent (king prawns & scallops) and whilst the meat of the main dishes was again excellent the vegetables could have been better cooked. I may be doing them a disservice but it did seem as if they had been microwaved. The desserts were really good. All round pretty good and would highly recommend, just ask them to cook the veg!

    The service was very slow and the time for food to be served was also slow which probably explained why my pizza was burnt on the base. The service was very flat and and reactive rather than pro-active. The rest of the food was enjoyable.
