The Crown Hotel, Lynton

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.

The Chichester Arms, Mortehoe

The previous comment from johnthechef should be viewed with suspicion, as he refers to a juke box in the pub. I have been drinking here regularly for the last nine years and there has not been a juke box in the pub during that period. Perhaps he is referring to another pub and has got confused.

Pedn-Olva Hotel, St Ives

Just had a week in St Ives. After a very disappointing lunch, poor beer and overcharging in the Sloop. we had lunch here three times.
I can't fault the beer, service or food, and can't agree with an earlier comment stating that it was very very expensive. A pint of Tribute and a half of lager was 4.95, fairly average I think. And a rump steak with chips and salad was less than 11. Lovely views and very pleasant staff, plus free nespapers to read. We shall return.
