|Great little pub...friendly barman, friendly locals, cheap but good beer and a lovely warm atmosphere. Good music as well (apart from having to suffer a Queen album). Thoroughly recommend.|

|Went in here for the first time this week for lunch. We were greeted by a very smart man behind the bar. The interior is a little shabby and needs some updating, but it is clean. I ordered a pint of Proper Job, and as it was the first to be served that day he pulled off a fair quantity from the pipes before he filled my glass. The beer was excellent. We ordered lunch; a ham baguette and a cheese sandwich, expecting to be given just that, but they came on large plates with very generous helpings of both salad and fries. The baguette was £4.95 and the sandwich £4.50. My baguette contained plenty of very good home cooked ham. I noticed that the barman (who may be the licensee) greeted everyone who entered, the majority, like us, appeared to be visitors to the town. The toilets were spotlessly clean. There is a notice outside stating that Tristan and Naomi welcome you to the Crown. In view of an earlier review on this site referring to Martin & Bev it would appear that there has been a further change of licencees recently. Having been unhappy with previous visits to the well known pub down the hill at Lynmouth we will certainly be returning to the Crown very soon.|

|Definitely a locals pub, but we were made to feel very welcome here recently. We particularly liked the choosing and playing of LPs on the deck in the corner. Nicely looked after beers too. |

| Been in a couple of times not a bad place really. Always seems to be a locals place but i cannot find any other pubs in this town.|
Is this the only one?

|Not exactly what I had expected when walking through the door. Very much a public bar with odd little touches such as the murals of gypsy violinists on the wall. The clientelle seemed to be a reasonably harmonious mix of locals and tourists, the former stand at the bar and the latter sit around the tables.|
Didn't try the food but the beer (it seems to be a St. Austell tied house) was reasonably well-kept.
Not in the top hundred or anything but generally an okay place to while away an hour.
