Coventry pub The Old Crown has been described as a 'jewel' of a place to visit to eat and drink. Trip Advisor is full of hundreds of glowing reviews about the huge venue.

It has 833 'excellent' ratings on the traveller reviews with one reviewer describing it as a 'jewel' and was left stunned by the price of their meal.

They posted: "I cannot believe the quality of food being knocked out here for the price. I've been twice in a week on the recommendation of a friend. Absolutely brilliant. Whoever is cooking here knows their stuff. I've been to gastro pubs and not had meals like this. Fresh quality food cooked to absolute perfection. For such an unassuming place without all bells and whistles it's honestly top class. Don't tell everyone though, we don't want it spoiled.

"Will be my new favourite for some time to come I'm sure."

Another praised its home-made pies, saying: "This is a great pub, friendly staff great food and the atmosphere is inviting. I ordered the steak pie and it was one of the best I've had in a long while, they are made in house and had great pastry and plenty of meat in the filling."

It was described as 'must visit' place by another reviewer, who said: "Amazing service and friendliest staff I've ever encountered. Great portions with delicious food. More then happy to make alterations to the meal so that you leave happy. A must visit if you are in the area. Will definitely return again."

Another who gave the venue a five rating said it was 'top shelf' explaining: "This place had everything you'd need for a quality evening. Everything was either exceptional or beyond be it from the food to the service."
