Always our go to place for dinner with friends. Kenny and staff never let us down - the food is fresh and the atmosphere warm and friendly. We have booked for 2 dates in November and have family staying B and B there too!

Stayed here for one night after completing the Meon Valley cycle trail. Building has a lot of character and interesting history. Room was very comfortable if a little compact, but fantastic shower ! Generous range of complimentary bits & pieces in the room. Superb veggie breakfast. Staff were really friendly and welcoming - organised bike storage even though we hadn’t requested this in advance.

We just stayed at the Crown Inn in Bishops Waltham and had a lovely time with family. The rooms were beautifully decorated. We got an upgrade to one of the luxury rooms and it was nearly perfect. The Pelley room was nicely updated but also historically in tact. The hard wood floors and the post and beams are original and worth taking your time to enjoy them. The architecture of the inn and the pub is gorgeous. I always mean to stay in a quaint old village inn but somehow end up in more modern abodes or a boutique hotel that’s been refurbished. The inn is fairly historically maintained and the bathroom was amazing: A large rain shower and a claw foot bathtub to pamper yourself. I used both. It was glorious. I was a little concerned that the bed would be a bit soft since it’s a very historically rendered Georgian style room—I prefer a hard mattress since I have back problems— but it was actually just fine and I slept fairly well. My husband, who is a much better sleeper than I am, dozed off right after his head hit the pillow. The room was quiet and the fan included on the dresser was also quiet and nice to leave on since it was a little warm out. My daughter and son-in-law had one of the smaller rooms. It was nice as well but not as luxurious as our room was. We had a very lovely dinner in the pub. The other family members I traveled with had steak pies and burgers. They said they were great. I had Macaroni cheese which was nicely done but not quite as cheesy as I’d ideally like it. The coffee was excellent and the breakfast was amazing—two full English breakfasts and my husband and I both had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Lots of food and tea or coffee. It was such a treat and right across the street from the Bishops Waltham Palace ruins which are totally worth seeing. The town is very pretty. The locals are friendly. Highly recommended

We met friends here for a drink. Lovely pub, cider/beer festival and live music all good. Then two of us decided to move to the dining room to eat. Big mistake. Service fabulous, again lovely area but although not busy the food took ages. Then it was so disappointing when it arrived. Burger tasty, side of triple cooked fries not crispy. No salad or garnish. One haddock fish cakes, the fish cakes had odd hard bits in and were mostly potato. Spinach, poached egg and hollandaise good. Sides of chips, again not crispy and onion rings, fine, but nothing special. Sadly won’t be back....or recommend....just about fine, nothing more.

We came here for lunch with my cousin who is from the area. We had a delicious lunch and drink before heading out for the afternoon. The staff at the bar on July 1st, 2019 were amazing. Very accommodating of my gluten free diet and as a result I had the most delicious burger. Portions are very generous with a lovely presentation. My children had fish a chips and it was crispy, fresh and yummy! We will definitely go back again when we visit the area. I will highly recommend this place to family and friends.

We found ourselves in the smallest bedroom,Room 8. It was very small, with a wardrobe so close to the bed it was tricky to open the door and only room for a bedside table on one side of the bed. The bed had a metal frame which squeaked at the slightest movement, making it very difficult to sleep. When we complained we were told that there were 3 rooms with metal beds and they had been asking the owners to replace them. The ensuite was very good, so you could at least shower if you couldn't sleep!

Situated in a village on the outskirts of Southampton we chose to stay here due to its proximity to the Hampshire Bowl cricket grounds. Old World inn gives you a feeling of a bygone era. Comfortable accommodation and the breakfasts were excellent

The Crown is a beautiful inn in Bishop’s Waltham with a homely atmosphere. There was a friendly welcome when I checked in for the night and was taken to a pretty room with a large comfy bed and a private shower room with a big walk in shower. Breakfast next morning cooked by Mark was the best I’ve ever had in a hotel, fabulous!

Came down to Bishop's Waltham for a night away, so glad I found this wonderful place. We found the huge car park just opposite the pub, which is located next to Bishop Waltham Palace (Well worth a visit too). We walked across the road and into the pub and checked in next to the bar, the manager was very friendly and helpful, said we had a big room, as he walked us up the stairs, we could see the history in the place. He opened up room 1, named Villeneuve, who was actually the commander in chief of the Spanish and French fleets that took on Admiral Nelson at Trafalgar in 1805, and he ( Villeneuve ) was actually billeted here after being taken prisoner after Trafalgar, what a place to stay. The room was huge, we had to go into the bathroom first as thats the way the door opened, the bathroom had a walk in shower and a free standing bath, really nice, it comes with a warning though, if you are tall the shower may be a bit low, I am 5'8" and had about three inches above my head to the shower head, which is actually located in the ceiling. Other than that the room was lovely, he then showed us the attic room, up an old flight of stairs, to a room with a sofa bed in and a floor that was far from straight, but great just the same. Back to the main bedroom now and WOW, fantastic four poster, wooden floor and walls, it was like going back in time, apart from the coffee and tea making facility The bed was huge and very comfy, all looked great, the floor was slightly uneven, not surprising for something built in 1500's . The big window looked out onto the road outside the pub. There was a tv which was ok. The bar down below

We stayed at The Crown for 1 night before a cruise from Southampton. It has to be one of the best places we have stayed in. It is a beautiful building. Really comfortable, warm and friendly - lovely atmosphere. Our room was great, really comfy bed & well equipped. Food was excellent, & the breakfast was amazing! We will be staying at The Crown from now on when we cruise from Southampton. Thank you for a fab stay.
