Father’s Day, so I (Marie) ditched the ladies for my little girls and took their daddy to his favourite spot – The Old Crown in Weybridge.
A traditional pub, it’s been owned and run by the same family for three generations.
I’m always surprised at the number of people I know from Weybridge that have never been inside, they’re missing out! The outside may not be grand but inside is a lovely pub that offers a friendly welcome, a chilled atmosphere and the best pub food in Weybridge.
Two rooms make up the main dining area, the traditional front room and the conservatory.
Behind the conservatory is a pretty walled courtyard patio.
There’s further outdoor seating down some steps behind the car park. It’s beside the Wey river and even offers a boat mooring.
All food is freshly prepared to order.
On Sundays there is a special menu with table service. During the rest of the week there’s a traditional pub menu (with amazing crumbed Haddock) as well as a daily specials board (if you luck out it’ll have the beef & ale pie, the best around.)
The only thing my daughter ever gets here (though not anywhere else) is chicken chunks. Except she gets peas, not beans. No problem, they changed it for her immediately.
Daughter number two ordered the child’s roast beef. She immediately slathered it in mint sauce. Strange child.
The dad of honour also had the ‘roast topside of Scottish beef with Yorkshire pudding, fresh seasonal vegetables, roast potatoes and gravy £11.50.’ It was tender with good sized portions and a nice fluffy, super fresh yorkshire.
I had the ‘grilled fillet of salmon with vegetable cous cous £11.50.’ I was a little hesitant at ordering cous cous as I’m not a massive fan but the entire dish was delicious. The salmon cooked to perfection and the cous cous complimented it perfectly.
I can’t rate The Old Crown with our usual table – I’ve been coming far too long and I’d be far too biased. If you’re one of those that has never been, The Old Crown is well worth trying.
