WOW! 10/10 will eat again. If you're looking for an outstanding restaurant stop searching!
The Crown is a fantastic extension to a lovely community. Warmly welcomed by the landlord,... read more restaurateur and even the gardener fetched a bowl of water for our Labrador. The food is outstanding!
I have eaten from many smoke house menus over the years but this was the best-balanced taste of them all. Generous portions and more than reasonable prices
If you live in the local area, you are very lucky!

Sometimes you stumble upon a hidden gem...
The Crown in Elsenham is a decent enough pub, but the big news is that right now it's the home of... read more Willett's BBQ - and it's quite simply not to be missed.
As a big fan of smoked meat, I couldn't help but try the BBQ Platter and it was nothing short of sensational: fall-off-the-bone ribs, sweet and soft pulled pork, lovely charred wings and the star of the show - gorgeously tender and flavoursome brisket. I needed a doggy bag to take home (the Platter could serve two!) but it was genuinely of the best bbq meals I've had this side of the Atlantic.
Hopefully these guys will have their own restaurant soon - and when they do, I'll be there!
