Crown Hotel, Chertsey

user reviews of the Crown Hotel, Chertsey

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Have used the Crown for many years, infrequently.

It has been done up and it has a much better layout .

Went in today, it was full of screaming and screeching rowdy children, and when l say children l mean from babies in prams to kids in tutus and their school uniforms, the oldest child was about 8.

If it had been during a lunchtime at the weekend or even about 4pm, then ok, but at 6.30 at night was just ridiculous !!!!!

I can see that they want the ' family market ' but a Friday evening for a quiet drink is not what you are going to get there.

I am honestly astonished, The Crown gas always been a nice pub but l can say l will check how many prams and screaming kids are in there before l go in there again ( having said that you can probably just stand outside and listen to the screams ).

In here last Saturday early afternoon and only five others present.
My first visit since the refurb of 2013 and I think it has ruined the place.
I had a quick pint of Young's Bitter (for £4.00) and then left.
bjbrummiejohn - 18 Jan 2016 13:56
Typical revamp of an old hotel bar. reasonable enough though and it did have a few ales. The Truman's Zephyr was just about drinkable.
anonymous - 23 Aug 2015 19:47
Came here to watch the match, as we'd done before, but the one and only TV's now been moved outside (yes, literally!) - into the smoking area out the back. So we went to the Prince Regent instead.
Trev - 1 Nov 2014 20:47
The Crown has now had a massive refurbishment and on my visit was packed. A large L-shaped bar is now to the left as you walk in and there is plenty of seats inside and out. The live music is in the "old" bar area as per usual. Good range of ales, Youngs Bitter, Special and Gold (all with new trendy pump-clips) plus a guest, Windsor & Eton Guardsman. Also stocks Meantime London Pale Ale and London Lager if you fancy a colder beer. It is certainly the type of pub Chertsey town centre needs.
Mothroy - 14 Sep 2013 11:14
Good live music Fridays & Saturdays. It is expensive and the beer on offer is nothing special. I had a few pints of Winter Warmer which were very pleasant but nothing like the original Youngs version.
Mothroy - 7 Jan 2013 22:18
Hunt for Beer, I'm glad you managed to find time from playing with yourself watching Britains got talent to post another quite offensive review about a fantastic pub.

Put down the bucket of Simpsons for one minute and smell the coffee

The crown is the best pub in Chertsey!!

I came here for a James Bond themed evening here the other night and had the time of my life. Big Tony was dressed as oddjob! It looked fantastic although a little more fake tan next time Tone !!! Hahahahaha.
There were some other fantastic characters including a Richard Kiel lookalike although I'm not sure he was there for the Bond night!

I even got lucky at the end of the night! There was some older sort sitting at the bar.. To be fair she looked more Roger Moore than Pussy Galore but I still decided to take her home and smash The Living Daylights out of her!

Tony... 10 out of 10 son ! Hunt For Beer... I'm removing your licence to kill a fantastic pub!

the_fourth_proctol_hole - 22 Feb 2012 12:41
i tell you summing for nowt.... must have been tony's day off the other sunday, went here with some silly bird who gotta herself knocked up by my pearly spooj. i thought i would treat her to a cod almighty. wish i hadnt, got served by that silly blond tart with the flock of seagulls hairdo. 'king well rude she was. after i politely ordered the food she threw the numbered wooden spoon at me and squawked "theyll bring it over."
not all bad in there, the young guy in charge that day was quite polite, if he didnt have a beard i could have sworn it was a big cuddly dyke, but as it was, it was like looking in a 'king mirror..... ello mate?
oliphant - 26 Jan 2012 19:44
Situated on a main road at the top end of the high st, this is a really prominent & large pub, restaurant and hotel, that is operated by Young's.

I visited on a bank holiday around early afternoon and even though the place was half full as it's so cavernous it felt empty.

A couple of ales on draught and the one I had was nicely kept.

There was a nice atmosphere and the food was reasonably price...I have even earmarked this place to take the wife to for a meal in the future!

Thumbs up from me.

Obviousy the management of The Crown has taken little notice of the constructive comments contained in my post of 7th November last.
Despite the gratuitously offensive comments of St Peter on 30th November (he should explain why the presence of a wedding party brings all other catering to a standstill!) I feel compelled to post again,having,of necessity,had to patronise The Crown several times over the Christmas break.
I can only assume that staff training for bar work at The Crown includes;
1.Lessons in avoiding any eye contact with customers waiting patiently to be served.
2.Failing to look beyond the pillar in the middle of the bar to see if any customers areawaiting service.
3.Serving customers in no discernable order-a practice which is not helped by customers failing to honour the time honoured pub code of indicating who has been waiting the longest.
4.Under no circumstances should tables be cleared of dirty plates with congealing food on them for at least an hour after the dining customers have left.
5.Pulling pints of beer so as to ensure that the product is a flat as possible.

Perhaps "Big Tony" should address these shortcomings-possibly after he has fathomed out the electrics which left the bar in darkness on New years Day despite his repeated attempts to get the power back on.I seem to recall being evicted from The Crown some time ago when there was a power cut, on the preposterous grounds of "health and safety"
Without wishing to upset Big Tony-less still St Peter (heaven forbid!) I do feel that an executive shakeup is long overdue at The Crown-THe Kings Head afford a much more affable and professional service-and the beer is cheaper.
PS-I have no problem with KFC,but surely nobdy wears Y Fronts these days,not even in Chertsey.
huntforbeer - 3 Jan 2012 13:23
FAO"Hunt for Beer"

If you were actually popular enough to ever be invited to a wedding you may understand a bit more. Instead you sit there in your Y fronts eating KFC slagging off everywhere in Chertsey!

You insult Big Tony..........You insult me Bruv!!!
St_Peter - 30 Nov 2011 12:25
Called here on Saturday to watch the football-I don't know where they recruit the bar staff,but clearing tables is obviously not one of their responsibilities-dirty plates on tables for hours on end.
The beer is dearer than many pubs in Chertsey,but not exhorbitant.
Despite boasting "food all day" the bar staff were instructed to take no further food orders at about 2.30 pm-OK, there was a wedding arriving ,but surely this is something they should take this into account when making the catering arrangements?
This pub used to be buzzing all the time ( I've used it for forty years) but on Sunday lunchtimes it is now dead.
Perhaps it's time for a change of management as it seems that complacency has set in.
huntforbeer - 7 Nov 2011 10:54
Went to a wedding reception here, food surprisingly good but beer and wine the usual outrageous prices charged by all youngs pubs.
yummummy - 3 Aug 2011 16:33
Dont even do the quiz any more. Price of beer is outrageous. Its all very well giving offers on the food but we're drinkers not eaters so its goodbye to the Crown its been fun.
beernotfood - 22 Jun 2011 14:32
Thanks Trev, your cheque is in the post.

Regards,

Oliphants_Gut - 11 Jun 2011 11:43
Great place where both the staff and the locals are friendly. TV sport on - which you can watch or not as you wish, but the picture is excellent quality. Youngs beers typically priced for the area, food served till late, and easy parking on the street most nights.
Trev - 19 May 2011 12:04
Did Tony get his head kicked in then? Haha.
Isaac_Hock - 15 May 2011 10:49
Hey crunt, if your reading this, sorry about ringing u other night I need boat number. I just snuck out of office, gotta be quick before Pan Larkin spots me with his Herschel innerspace endescope!

right lads, after a bit of research i can say that chertsey is more of a chelsea town, a few of our boys dotted about, alan, if you and the boys are reading this, then well done, you are right about this place there a gooners in here on the occassion, lets get tooled up and do'em good n proper. there will be claret everywere. weybridge has more gooners, but this will be a good start,
tell Pete to bring his National Socialist Flying Corps dagger: the one he used against Feyenoord scum, im bring my hitler youth dagger,

Hello buddy. What a mare, everyones taken an unexplained powder. Wish someone told me. I got my own unexplained powder to shift, not even elphick is taking the bait! Whilst here I had the fresh fruit kebab, youngs beer battered fish and chips, the delectable sauteed clams and the pork belly.. I was still proper hungry when I left, gave simpsons a knock, went for the family tree meal deal plus eighteen flightless fowl labamba wraps. When I got home I decided to void my bowels. Didn't want any Dutch ovens
talk about the last airbender! Hello buddy!
oliphant - 1 Feb 2011 21:54
This pub is charming, has a billiard table in the garden and outdoor meat grilling station, superb idea. Delightfully qaint ethnic landlord. According to my colleague Peter Falk it seems to be the nerve centre for this underground b.o.b
Keep your eyes out for
'Cashmere aka' 'Hubble and peek' aka 'big Hubble in little chertsey' aka 'your round' he is possibly the ring leader and maybe tooled up. One other shady character is a foot soldier called crunt, the only clue on him is that he has a taste for toms - ones who specialise in (a-levels) (ac/dc) (c.i.m) (g.f.e) (o.w.o) (s&m) (tailpipe) (Cleveland steamers) (rainbow kiss) (embergs flying pliers) (felching) (rimjobs) and (tossing the salad)
The other character is a man who goes by, paleface aka ' wagon wagoff' aka 'Ebdon' aka
'king deadly' aka 'ants round' he is the one who organises the venues, fights, weapons.
Anyway I'm off, I am currently investigating why I am six feet under and being eaten by worms!

have to lie low in here for a few weeks, a bit annoyed that Ewar Woowar caught me in the act at the vine, especially cos I thought he was dead, left my mini hubble at scene. ive ordered a second hand one from ebay, im not bothered, i'll order a hundred more if i have to, got to spy me some skin!(kushty) after all as I say to my mates at Upton Park.

"Wow where am I, I thought this leap would be the leap home, where am I Al?"

"well according to Ziggy, this is the Crown Hotel/pub in Chertsey, it's 2011."
"ok Al, but what the heck am I am doing here?"
"Easy Sam.... Gushie is still calibrating the data... But according to Ziggy, (al gives Ziggy a tap) there's an 83% chance you ate here to stop a disaster happening in this pub!
"Gee Whiz."
"he's not sure, it could be to stop a go0ner from shouting at the tv, thus causing the famous 2011 chertsey riot, destroying half the town and killing 285 humans and 12 pikeys.. Or it could be to stop a local man called Paleface taking two Um Bongos home and starting a special Shine commune, it eventually overpowers most of England in 2016...called Black Diamond Dawn.
"Gee whiz Al, that sound terrible."
"Sure does Sam.... But the most likely reason that you are here is to find a group called the goonies and reform the famous best ever pub quiz team, consisting of Ebdon, Cashmere, elphick, el Spic, poormans wenger and the crunt. They eventually become 2012 world champions.
"Oh boy!!!"
Quantum leap is not filmed in front of a studio audience.

Good pub, although on christmas day, while it was open, went for a nose around upstairs in the function room.. Couldn't Believe my eyes, saw that big welsh landlord stuffing a big bird on one of the tables
"who am I?" he screamed repeatedly

Holly giblets!

Hello buddy.
oliphant - 28 Dec 2010 17:21
Love this pub, went in on boxing day with my mate Ebdon, we both pulled a few crackers if you know what I mean, great staff, not bad prices, they had one of those clowns there trying his best to entertain the locals with his balloon animals, he wouldn't shut up, disaster, apart from that good afternoon out. Back to London tonight for some man-brassing, got to pay the bills.
andy_kilometrepork - 27 Dec 2010 13:29
this pub aint bad, after a shift at the plodshop its not a bad place at all to go and get a pint of the black stuff. saying that i found it really easy to get a drink but found it impossible to get a round in.
dc_welcome - 24 Dec 2010 12:31
i thought that this was a great pub, friendly manager, puts up with a lot of stick/banter from the locals, my girlfriend thinks she is too old for this pub, she is a bit of a boiler, drinks a tad pricey. good fish and chips. sometimes there are a bunch of rowdy claret topped gooners in there, after a few loud mouth soups they get a bit unreasonable. apart from that i think its a cracking pub, best in chertsey infact
mr_boon - 22 Dec 2010 19:34
I've cleaned the doombar pipes and fixed that toilet door, and jonBonser you'll be paid on the 20th early for christmas so dont worry.


Joe_Johnson - 20 Dec 2010 11:00
My company has an office in Chertsey (no, really), so I do occasionally visit from London, and I've been in here a few times.

It's a lovely looking place, and currently very nicely turned out.

I ate and drank here - the food was very good (Lamb Shanks, Grilled Fish & Chips), although about £5 too much per dish. This isn't Central London.

We drank both Young's Ordinary, and Doombar. They were both OK - I've had a better Doombar, but maybe it doesn't turnover very fast there. The beer was more expensive than a place in Greenwich a few nights later, though. This isn't Central London! (I'll get off the hobby horse now).

It was warm and comfortable, and the staff were pleasant and helpful. What they weren't, though, was particularly quick in serving. On a quiet Tuesday night with 1 person in front of me, I was a bit disappointed about the times it took to get served. It seemed very much like some of them were new, though.

Overall, it was all right - I wouldn't want to be there on a crowded night though. You'd give up after 15 minutes and go home thirsty.

Only one of the toilet cubicle doors closes in the men's, by the way, if the landlord is reading...
FussyPunter - 23 Oct 2010 16:31
This is a pretty place to have a drink, but the prices????? My wife nearly chocked on her potato skins when the bill arrived. Some annoying little bearded man kept trying to muscle in on our conversation as well. Nice landlady though!
Thethirdman - 6 Sep 2010 16:33
Occupying a prominent position on London Street in the centre of Chertsey, The Crown Hotel is an imposing 18th century former coaching inn with an impressive Tudor style brick and timber frontage.

A number of years ago, this Young's house joined the ranks of those establishments enlarged and converted into hotels and it's now got over 40 rooms. Perhaps inevitably, as part of the rebranding, the interior was given that rather loungey look that Young's seem to go for nowadays, with a mixture of sofas, high perches and more traditional seating in a number of different drinking and eating areas. There's a large outside conservatory style drinking area at the back. Disappointingly, the splendid chiming grandfather clock that I remember from earlier visits seems to have disappeared - an inevitable victim of the rebranding, no doubt.

Pleasingly, on my recent Saturday afternoon visit, the pub didn't particularly feel like a hotel bar and a few keen rugby supporters were enthusiastically watching the New Zealand v South Africa rugby international.

The Young's Ordinary - £ 3.10p - was reasonable.

I didn't particularly either like or dislike this place, to be honest
JohnBonser - 1 Sep 2010 14:15
Nice pub with well-kept beer and decent enough "pub grub" quality of food... but massively optimistic in price. Nearly £12 for just a burger isn't on when it comes with undercooked chips... the ingredients are good but the kitchen is a bit scrappy often getting orders wrong or not cooking them properly.

Beer is good but I wouldn't fancy staring down the bill for anything more than a swift lunchtime pint.
Timberwolf - 27 Jul 2010 17:16
The seating areas are cosy and the ambience is quite good but the bar prices are very very steep. Definitely one of the better places to go in Chertsey town centre though if you're after a relaxed drink with friends.
4_ale - 19 Jul 2010 16:25
Bloody Nora, a Youngs house with no Special!!
Incredibly expensive.

The_Sloven - 28 Apr 2010 12:33
Only one thing to say about this boozer.....Expensive

The Beer is good, the Staff are friendly but it comes at a price. 4 notes a pint is over the top geezer.

You don't have any trouble here because the management rules with an iron fist. YOU DONT GET LEMON WITH BIG TONE !


charlesfox - 3 Nov 2009 09:16
A Young's managed pub, very nicely furnished, with a good range of their beers on tap and in bottles. Although slightly pricey, the beer and food are good. I particularly enjoyed the dessert platter which combined half a dozen desserts for £12.50.
dmncf - 1 Sep 2009 17:41
First vist in a few years.
Most expensive pint I've had to buy for a while, but I have to say it was in good order.
Food was well cooked but the portions seemed a little small for the price, that said I had sufficant.
Staff pleasant, pub tidy, landlord/manager on duty.
Not very busy but it was mid week, very warm and the tennis was on.
Marked down as I had to wait to be served initally and the cost of a pint.
Thevicar - 2 Jul 2009 09:46
Enormous town pub with hotel rooms available. Several drinking areas with a mix of high tables and stools, low tables with sofas, what happened to the old fashioned trad pub table with your pint at easy reach. Rather upmarket and I'd say aspirations of grandeur looking around the various rooms. The conservatory leads out to a rear garden terrace with a barbecue.
Youngs beers however just Ordinary Bitter, Bombardier and I suppose "guest" Courage Directors, how devilishly exciting.
An unremarkable pub in a town full of unremarkable pubs.
Maldenman - 21 Jun 2009 21:07
Phil Winstanley’s wife is, I believe, Lesley (son Matthew, and Great Dane ‘Max’).

Incidentally, on the subject of ‘Crown Trivia’, do any fellow BITE enthusiasts recall the Ram called Rodger who used (circa 1985) to reside in the ditch adjacent to the old garden (pre-dating the construction of the hotel)?

Rodger seemed to exist on nothing more that the beer garden’s detrius and the occasion saucer of ‘winter warmer’, and brought endless cheer to the pub’s patrons with his persistent battering of an old wooden gate.

as_johnson - 22 Dec 2008 13:11
The Crown used to be a good pub some years ago when it was run by Phil and his wife (can't remember her name). After them came Bill in the early 90's who also made a good job of it.

I was in there recently and was saddened to see how dirty it had become. Also, a few foul-mouthed drongos at the bar spoilt the atmosphere. Time to move on methinks. Problem is where?
BillJ - 11 Dec 2008 19:46
Yes sky sports has gone, but please be aware BBC have a share of the F.A Cup which might be shown on a b&w 14" potable with no sound as long as it doesn't clash with Wasps Vs Sale again if that happens to be shown a free to air channel.
Joe_Johnson - 10 Nov 2008 14:09
Just a note to say that this pub no longer subscribes to Sky Sports (presumably because of the group of rowdy Arsenal fans led by the guy in the Spain shirt who used to congregate for the Champions League matches).
as_johnson - 31 Oct 2008 12:55
Enjoyed a couple of pints in the garden at the rear, which has waitress service. Good selection of imported lagers on draught. Most enjoyable and would seek out again next time I'm in Chertsey
Mothroy - 16 Jul 2008 12:43
This pub was tired, but what a fantastic refurbishment out with the old and in with the new they have kept the best of the old and added a touch of class to chertsey. food is fantastic 10/10 service to match there is nothing better around well done!
gareth28 - 27 Jun 2008 09:04
Isaac_Hook,

I'm well aware there was a decent restaurant for years and years - my brother was a chef at the crown the early - mid '90s!

At the time of my original post the restaurant area looked very sorry for itself and looked to be being treated as an extended bar area.
huntface - 25 Jun 2008 16:56
The food and beer here is so overpriced and of a very low standard, very poor.
j_mcboat - 21 Apr 2008 14:04
The best pub in the area good home made food and well kept real ale and dogs welcome
muriel65 - 11 Mar 2008 22:55
Visit Saturday 16 Jan. Service quick and pleasant enought. The Winter Warmer was spot on and a proper measure. Gammon sarny was well filled, nice and fresh. Most tables needed a wipe down as did the condiments which looked like they had been in a fight with the ketchup bottle, something that only takes a couple of minutes. A little more care in the that area would be the difference between 'average' and 'good'. Average.
nevardmedia - 18 Feb 2008 12:49
Food is pretty dire and VERY much over priced!!! As for the staff they are as much use as a chocolate hot water bottle!!! :( disappointing
katie_pooo - 5 Jan 2008 02:03
You are mistaken. The restaurant has been there for years and years now.

Anyway, as an added note I had the Sunday roast in there recently and it was magnificent. Beautiful piece of beef, perfectly cooked veg, etc. You get a free starter and dessert all in the cost of the meal (about 12 quid), the dessert must be worth a fiver on its own.

Lovely.
Isaac_Hock - 5 Nov 2007 21:21
Yes i see from their website that there is now a restaurant.

However, there certainly wasn't one on my last visit about a year ago. A room where there used to be one though!

I'm pleased they have reopened it. Years ago the Crown had a very good restaurant.

And chertsey needs some variety in places to eat.
huntface - 23 Oct 2007 23:43
i like it, spacious although it can be a bit locally sometimes in some corners of the pub, but not too bad.
unclesam - 9 Oct 2007 19:08
I'm a bit confused by that last review. The Crown does indeed have a restaurant, a rather large one, adjacent to the main bar and patio. I'm not sure how you missed it?! Apart from that, the Crown is a nice pub but it's just too expensive. £3.40 for a pint of Stella / Kroney or whatever. Abssolute madness.
Isaac_Hock - 24 May 2007 20:59
What's happened to this place?

I note some posters saying it's the best pub in Chertsey.
I agree it is. Unfortunately that’s more an indictment of the state of pubs in this town rather than an endorsement. It’s Hobson’s choice

The toilets are a disgrace. They absolutely stink of stale piss. I can’t comment on the ladies, but gentlemen – its hold your breath time.

The Young’s beers are poorly kept, which is as we all know is a recipe for disaster. I’ve learned to stick to Guinness when I’m there; which presents its own problem.

The staff are useless. Ask for a pint of Guinness and prepare for a long wait. The technique at the Crown is to half pour, then walk off, serve someone else/have a chat with a colleague/pop down to the cellar before even thinking about pouring the rest.

The big Welsh guy who runs the place is friendly enough, but I do get the impression he doesn’t really know what he’s doing. The place is simply too big for him. This is evident by the restaurant. There isn’t one. This is a hotel! There are a lot of rooms here. If I were to be paying £120 a night to stay here, I’d expect to be offered something a bit more exciting than average pub grub. Fish finger butty anyone?

Oh and the food? Well I don’t know. You see the Crown does use GMT. If it says food finishes at 10.30pm on the menu, that actually means 9.30pm

The really shame is, that this place used to be a fabulous pub.

huntface - 25 Nov 2006 11:26
the best pub in chertsey by far Good selection of beer
Youngs bitter wells bombardeir winter warmer good food the steak sandwich is to die for
and a warm welcome by all the staf
anonymous - 3 Nov 2006 20:48
Like an old friend, The Crown fuses culture and a good old fashioned knees up together. With its silk drapes and wood beams The Crown oozes class and sophistication
I popped in there on the way to the Chertsey show once and by golly have gone there ever since.
I recommend a cap full of Old Nick before bedtime!

Joe_Johnson - 3 Nov 2006 14:12
Spacious and attractive Youngs boozer. Lacking on handpulls (only Special & Ordinary yesterday), but well-stocked in bottles (Oatmeal, Double Chocolate and Old Nick all present) though the Oatmeal had been in fridge which killed the taste a bit. SKY and football available on big screen.
Quinno - 3 Oct 2006 20:20
I went in here today purely because it was the only place serving food at 4pm! Had an absolutely delicious sandwich and cup of tea! The bread was fresh and very thickly cut and the tuna was delicious!
sarah101 - 29 Sep 2006 21:11
Nice pub.

Thats all I can say positively about it.

Shite food, rubbish toilets, dog wandering around and pissed on the carpet (Does she do that at home??)
zagreb - 20 Jul 2006 00:41
Excellent pub - by far the best in Chertsey. Attentive staff (including table service on some nights), Stella on tap plus Sky Sports. The Sunday Quiz-night is also one of the best around.
as_johnson - 11 Dec 2005 15:06
Tony & Sian used to run the Dukes Head in Wallington and are lovely despite their affliction (being Welsh!)
I found it excellent value for money as I went there on 22nd November 2003, drank as much beer as I could, stayed the night in the hotel and the total bill was zero. Zilch. Nothing. This is due to the fact that the aforementioned governor had made me a bet that England wouldn't win the rugby world cup. True to his word, as soon as Jonny W kicked that last minute drop goal, my phone rang and the large Welshman invited me to collect my winnings. He wasn't bitter at all...
GixerMark - 3 Feb 2005 10:28
One of the nicest couples you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. Fun and efficient at the same time (and I dont compliment the welsh very often)
JB - www.coachandhorses@youngs.co.uk - 30 Jul 2004 11:41
Very big and friendly place.
The food and drink is excellant. Best place around the area.
Managers Tony & Sian have made a a huge improvement.
Tony = He aint fat hes big boned honest! (yeah right) very funny person to be around.
Sian = Mrs bossy! Tony is scared of her deep down.Shes a lovely lady.I admire them both
Gem* (Sian & Tonys favorite niece) - 3 Apr 2004 16:26
Great atmosphere in the bar ,beer is very good.
Great new restaraunt called Flambards the food is excellent.
49 bedrooms 19 Of which are brand new and are great for when my family come to stay.
Tony & Sian new managers are very welcoming .
great place for a night out.
