(((** 3 November 2015 by Duncan Waldren from Abingdon
Hostess (Molly)very friendly and efficient, waitress good,although missed one starter!this was quickly remidied.Food however was nice but very average for the money! My scotch egg was overcooked as yolk not runny,and my rib eye was ordered medium rare but arrived medium! I had heard good reviews from friends however my experience was less impressive! As a chef I was a bit dissapointed!!

we visited the crown & thistle just over a month ago and had the most amazing meal, in fact it was so good we returned less than a week later ordering exactly the same as we had 6 days previously. sadly it was a very poor example of what we had before. we were so disappointed that we questioned the manager on what was different, he informed us that it was the head chefs night off, so we returned on the same night as the first time we went only to be sadly disappointed again . we have lived in the area for many years and was so pleased with our first visit thinking how great it was to finally have a decent place to eat. I understand that a huge amount of money has been spent refurbishing the place, so come on crown & thistle hire a decent chef and get the food back up to the standard it was on our first visit. ps bookatable please send a copy to c&t owners!
