One review of “The Crown”

    Matt Noble Wright, Director, Nobleword Ltd

    Woodstock. The name conjures up various images depending upon your age, nationality, and musical tastes. However, for this particular honey-stoned corner of Oxfordshire, think of an eclectic mix of traditional British meaty fare with a Spanish seafood twist. Oh, and the cocktails…don’t forget the cocktails!

    In the Summer, the courtyard terrace is packed with aficionados of the shaken drink, but as it was distinctly Autumnal we stayed within the calming pea-blue painted restaurant and sampled The Crown’s most popular cocktail – a Raging Bison (vodka & vanilla schnapps).

    We kicked off with Spanish seafood – crispy squid and wood-roasted gambas, which were both delicious. My dinner companion, Big Dave, who pronounces himself a fan of the ‘hot stuff’, then plumped for the fiery pizza special for his main course.

    The Crown boasts a traditional Italian clay pizza oven, wood-fired as demanded by the purists (harder to cook on than gas but more flexible in skilled hands).

    One carafe of water later, Big Dave pronounced himself well satisfied.
    The Spanish theme continued through dessert – Mallorcan almond cake and crema catelana both followed, the latter being the stand-out dish – a cinnamon-infused more delicate version of a crème brûlée.

    Should you wish to truly indulge in the Mediterranean delights of The Crown, there is a Spanish-themed evening every Thursday, with live music, tapas, and (I’m informed) a huge paella cooked in the conservatory. Hasta la vista….I’ll be back!

    The Crown isn’t just a wonderful restaurant however, they can also boast being a grade 2 listed 18th century boutique hotel B&B with 5 en-suite bedrooms with free wi-fi, bose sound docks, and luxury toiletries. If you’re visiting Woodstock, don’t miss a trip to or a stay at The Crown!
