    Excellent meal, extremely friendly and helpful staff - knew their menu well enough to easily ensure I picked something that worked with my dietary requirements. Very happy to see a menu that caters to so many different options - first time I've had a desert from the menu in forever and it was delicious!

    Everything was good. I drank water because the fruit juice I required was not available.

    Food was excellent as always but we were disappointed with the service on this occasion. We had two courses and no one bothered to check with us whether everything was fine during the whole evening. It was also difficult to catch the waiters’ eye - no one seemed to paying attention, including the guy I assume was in charge.
    Also, the menu doesn’t change much so while it is very good food, it can get a bit monotonous.
    Will take a break from the Old Crown for a little while.

    Delicious food and good service; it's almost back to it's original standard although we were bothered by house flies at the end of the meal!

    The setting was great as was the service. The people in our party who had the chicken complained it was terribly dry. The lamb and vegetarian option were nice. The panna cotta was ordered but not enjoyed. We ordered a lot of chocolate brownies expecting them to be hot - they were hard to eat and the kids struggled. I expected so much better for what we paid.

    The Old Crown is only a couple of villages away from us. We used to frequent it under the previous ownership so were keen to see if it had changed. It most definately has! For the better, and it was good before.
    Four of us visited early mid-week for dinner.
    A more modest menu selection than before enables them to concentrate on execution, which was done to perfection.
    Special alergy requirements for one of our party were handled with care and attention.
    Portions are large!
    Two of us ordered bread and olives to start. One plate between us would have been enough. Fortunately the others helped out.
    All our main dishes were very good. Chicken supremes, sea bream and classic caeser salad all very tasty and well presented. Only two of us could manage deserts, just one scoop of icecream (couldn't manage three) and a delightful Apple and rhubarb crumble that we all had at least a taste of.
    Service throughout was cheerful and professional.
    The ambience was most enjoyable, clean and fresh. Background music just the right, volume. Low!
    By Cambridge standards pricing is competitive. Given the quality of the food, service and ambience, with drinks and a 10% tip it was extremely good value.
    We're looking forward to more evening visits and finding out what their lunches are like. I really don't think we'll be disappointed.

    Sunday roaat, lovely for the meat eaters. Vegetable Wellington was vegan and not to my taste. Why do restuarants not manage to offer a vegetarian roast dinner - nut roast, veg Wellington, cauliflower cheese etc. Such a nice place, friendly staff and atmosphere, just please add decent vegetarian meals, not just vegan.
