Will Larter left this review about The Crown

A large pub holding a privileged position near the church, consisting apparently of two different sized buildings. The entrance is in the smaller building on the right, which holds the lounge bar and leads through to a beer garden of sorts, really no more than a yard. The larger public bar is to the left. In the lounge I saw two hand pumps, with clips for Everards Beacon Hill and Tiger, but when I asked for the latter, the server went through to the other bar to pour the beer. My half was in good nick and I took it through to the yard to consume. This seems like a friendly and welcoming pub and certainly one to include if doing a circuit of Melton.

I got the impression that the Crown was very much the town local. I arrived here around 11:00 on a Saturday morning to find quite a few already in. It's hard to say what function the two rooms originally had but I went in the larger square front room which is where all the locals were. I noticed a juke box and a TV which was thankfully turned off.
The bar has five hand pumps which had one unused, Bateman's XB, and Everard's Old Original, Tiger & Beacon Hill. I went for the Tiger (£3.20) which was in excellent nick.
Everard's dont seem to have duff pubs and I thought this was another good one.

Two roomed Everards pub handy for the bus stop for the 19 bus running between Oakham and Nottingham. Popular and friendly serving a range of the Everards beers. We chose Everards Tiger Green Bullet which was in very good condition and very enjoyable. Could of spent longer here but had to catch the bus.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Crown

Got a good welcome when visiting this pub. This Everards pub serves some very well kept ales and also good food. This two roomed pub is very comfortable, also has an open fire. Staff friendly and the manager told me you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend. I went for the Everards Tiger. Will defo return

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Crown

Everards pub retaining its traditional layout, but sensitively modernised and one bar now more of a dining area. Also has a skittle alley, the 'Church View' function room and a nice little patio beer garden at the back. Four real ales on handpump - Original, Tiger, Beacon (£2.70) and the seasonal Whakatu. Very welcoming, tidyly maintained, and well worth seeking out.
