We all look forward to welcoming you to The Crown with a new sense of excitement.

Many of you will already know us from The Beehive at White Waltham where we have been greeting and feeding our visitors for the past eight years.

My aim has always been to offer beautiful food in an authentic English pub. Dishes that are heart-warming, seasonal, and packed with flavor. All I wanted was for our guests to return home happy and contented! This aim established our reputation and remains firmly in place today.

At The Crown, our hospitality will be based on exactly the same principles - seasoned, I hope, with a pinch of added ambition in the kitchen. And on the floor front-of-house, you will be greeted and looked after by members of my family - my wife Helena and her sister Alicia. Both have many years of experience in the trade, working initially in some of London’s top restaurants as well as running the Beehive.

My family and the Team hope to w

    Food was excellent however service was a bit hit and miss. The waitress was very pleasant but very nervous and I think it was possibly her first day so she really didn't know her way round the menu. The biggest disappointment was that when I originally booked with Open table for 2 people I did say it was to celebrate a birthday (my Wife's). I on the day called the restaurant to see if they could accommodate an extra 2 people which they could. The table next to us who were also celebrating a special occasion got a special treat as a pudding with a candle in bought out by Dominic the chef patron. We were not afforded the same attention. Whether this was because I changed the booking or not I don't know. We have celebrated a number of birthdays at Dominic's other restaurant The Beehive and the person whose birthday it was has always had a special cake or baba with Happy Birthday inscribed in icing on the plate. Less special than it could have been and my wife did feel short changed.

    We had 2 courses plus snacks and drinks. Every course we had was very good and could not fault any part of any of the courses. Snacks: Devils on horseback ( maybe one more portion , they were so good. ) and Cod cheeks, delicious. Starter: Fish soup was sublime. Partner had Isle of Wight tomato with cheese and pastry. Delicious. Main: Roast Hake with creamed potato. Potato was so rich and prepared in the french style I think, ie lots of butter and very tasty. Fish was well prepared as was courgette and tomato. Rib eye steak M Rare was also very well prepared with a delicious red wine sauce. Wine partner had, Merlot £26 a bottle was a good option and VFM. Lovely evening and will go again.

    We have eaten at The Crown several times over the years as it is a convenient halfway point to meet relatives. We have always enjoyed it and this was our first visit since COVID. It was a lovely atmosphere and the service was very good. The food was lovely, However, we felt that for the price, the portions were very small. We decided to opt for two courses, main and dessert but we all said we wished we had ordered a starter as well although, this would have increased the price considerably. I would recommend The Crown for the service and the quality of the food and wine but would add a warning about value in terms of cost and portion size.

    The Lobster Ravioli was outstanding, followed by the Duck, which was a delight and the Chilled Rice Pudding with Peaches and Walnuts a real Summer treat. I’m so glad The Crown is in safe hands. The only improvement could be is to update the Website more often.

    My wife and I decided to book a table for lunch at The Crown - Burchetts Green for the first time since it has changed hands and we had an absolutely outstanding dining experience. The food and wine were delicious and the service was first class. We will definitely be booking a table there again as well as their other restaurant The Beehive in White Waltham.

    Fabulous gem hidden away! We have been going to the Crown for 25 years and despite changing hands it has maintained its little character. A wonderful place to have a drink and snack as well as being able to lunch or dine on some of the finest food locally sourced. Combine that with the attention and care of the staff and good company and you have a superb evening readily made ! Thank you to the Crown for our 15th anniversary meal and making it so special!

    It is still very early days since Dom (Dominic) Chapman (The Beehive, Waltham and ex The Royal Oak, Paley Street), took over The Crown Burchetts Green from Simon Bonwick and family, who, very deservedly, earned the restaurant one Michelin star. Other than one more couple, we were alone for lunch, on a hot summer's day but perhaps that reflects the facts that under the Bonwicks, the restaurant never opened for lunch and that Dom's new venture is not widely known about as yet. The food was very good and the set price (£55 for three courses or £45 for two) menu choice was fine. Service was friendly and attentive and the pleasant environment, little changed since Bonwick days, although it was good to see the garden area being prepared for drinks and bar snacks. As I say, early days for the business itself but the food is prepared by a chef with a very good pedigree, reflected in the food that we very much enjoyed.

    We were the only people in the restaurant, so it did lack atmosphere. Service was good. We ordered ham,egg and chips which were delicious. Possibly a thicker slice of ham may have added to the meal. The ham provided was very thin. However, it was not an expensive dish. The apple crumble for dessert was delicious. Overall an pleasant dining experience

    We were a party of four, we eat out often, my mother only eats fish. We had starters of fried fish which were in a fabulous light tempura quality batter, also two mushroom soups thick and very full of flavour. The main courses totally defeated us each very different and very inventive. My lamb wrapped in pancetta with a piccalilli sauce was amazing, the fish mali mali mum had not tried before and was lovely, dad's beef strog in a pastry was inspirational and the belly of pork, my husband's favourite, was one of the best he has ever had. Only dad had room for pudding and it was a delicious New york baked cheese cake. Excellent food, thoroughly recommend it.
