Book a table

We are re-opening on Thursday 3rd December. If you’d like to book a table with us, you can book quickly and easily below. We will be in in Tier 2 (local Covid alert level of High) which means that only a household (and their support bubble) can sit together indoors and we can only serve alcohol as part of a substantial meal. The Christmas bubble rules do not change this as you can only meet your Christmas bubble in a private home or garden, place of worship or public outdoor space.

Our online booking system will only allow a maximum group of 6. If you are a household or support bubble which is larger than 6, please call us on 01284 830250 or e-mail us via info@thecrownhartest.co.uk to book.

We have a weekly menu which is available for lunch or dinner. On Sundays, this includes a roast.

To enable our kitchen team to work safely, our weekly menu is only available for up to 40 people at each service.

Before booking, please also read our Staying Covid secure information as it contains important information about your visit. In accordance with government requirements, your name & contact details must be recorded for NHS Test & Trace. Please scan our QR code on arrival using the NHS Covid-19 app to check yourself in & leave the confirmation screen open (or we can record your details). If you are part of a group, we will record the details of one person unless everyone has checked in on the NHS app. If you pre-book, we will provide your details from our booking system to Test & Trace if required.

We are canine friendly. Dogs are always welcome in the garden on a lead. If your dog is well behaved then we’re happy for you to have him (or her) on a lead in some of our dining areas (please mention when booking). We do ask that you keep your dog out of the way as we hope you appreciate that dogs are not everyone’s cup of tea.

We look forward to welcoming you at The Crown soon.
