Six of us went there for dinner one night the week after Easter when we were on a canal boat holiday. The pub had been recommended to us by the canal boat people. We had great food and great company. The publican was friendly. The food was very good - we all had something different and it was all very good. We'd definitely go there again.

As boaters we visit many pubs for food and a drink. This place & it's owner will never be forgotten by us. I have never been treated so badly by anyone before and we are still angry months later.
Initially i had to ask for some ice as the chair i sat on reflected the heat from the fire & has scared my arm. The main meal I ordered was called a type of vegetable bake. It was mostly mashed potato layered over a milky sauce & I really could not find more than about 3 pieces of an orange vegetable. The accompanying 'new' potatoes were earthy. Once I managed to get seen to I sent the food back and heard the manager say 'what's wrong with it?' Very angrily to the waitress. The glass of wine that came with the meals was very vinegary- need I say more.
The owner made a rude comment about us that was heard by all and was embarrassing. I do not expect to be treated badly or have rude comments made as a way of revenge for my having the courage to send back a meal that is totally unacceptable!
When I went up to pay for one of the two meals I had to have an argument with the owner in front of all other visitors as he said that no one else was complaining and insisted I pay for both meals. I refused, payed for one & consequently had my debit card thrown back at me. Awful man. I wish I'd refused to pay at all seeing as my partner had to eat alone & be ensulted & embarrassed by this large, sweaty, angry man.
I highly recommend The Black Horse in Foxton as mentioned by another reviewer. Their food & service is top class & they will do all they can to make your meal how you want it.

Popped in on Saturday evening and was very impressed. Place is obviously very popular, as every table was taken by about 7pm.
Decent food (nice to see a good selection of vegetarian dishes), especially the desserts, which were proper old-school food. Around 8 for a main and 3.25 for a dessert.
Four ales on tap, including Bombadier, Deuchars and the guest ale which I was drinking, Moorhouses' Blonde Witch (3.10 for a pint).
Friendly and helpful staff, good atmosphere and no reception for mobile phones or televisions, so people are forced to resort on old-fashioned conversation for entertainment. Good stuff.
Lots of pictures, brasses etc on the walls and proper tankards hanging above the bar. Low, beamed ceiling - but authentic rather than naff recreation as some pub chains do.
If I lived in Crick, I'd pop in regularly - and it seems people do, judging by the amount of people the bar staff were calling by their first names.

I was a bit surprised to see such a low rating for this perfectly reasonable pub. It may keep old fashioned opening times but generally has a decent selection of ales. The pub food is reasonable value too
