Review on The Crown Inn

Hidden away in a peaceful village close to the River Glyme and the 'end stone' of the Rollright Stone's configuration (hence the village name Church Enstone), the creeper-clad Crown Inn is a seventeenth-century stone inn, enthusiastically run by Tony and Caroline Warburton. Inside, there's a cottagey bar with a seagrass floor and real ales on hand pump, plus a choice of two eating areas.

Tony Warburton cooked at the Three Choirs Vineyard, Newent before defecting to Oxfordshire. He is noted for his commitment for local produce and his straightforward approach to things culinary - so visitors can expect generous, boldly flavoured dishes along the lines of fishcakes with coriander and chilli mayonnaise, pheasant breast with chipolatas, bacon and cranberry jus or wild mushroom frittata with rocket salad.

His steak pie made with locally reared Dexter beef and Hooky Ale is a firm favourite, and his inventory of desserts might range from caramelised apple tart to bread-and-butter pudding. Sunday lunch is bestseller, with roasts as the centrepiece.

The Crown Inn Christmas Menu

Restaurant menus often vary from day to day, so the above should be treated as examples of what to expect in terms of cuisine and price.
