Quinno _ left this review about The Three Crowns

Slightly battered local pub on a junction which is the darling of the local CAMRA branch. Old fashioned with two rooms either side of the central bar. Pea green and white trim (hmmm). Community-oriented, there was a well-advertised list of events, from football to quizzes to cheese nights. Time to get stuck into the ale – seven were on (also a CAMRA discount actively promoted) and I plumped for XT black. However the resultant beer was vinegar so I wearily trod back over to the bar and said so. The reaction was amusing “I told (owner) to take that off ages ago, it’s been on for almost a month!”. Now, whilst I initially found this hard to believe, I did say “maybe he’s had a few barrels of it?”. “Nope, definitely just the one” she replied. Okaayyy. Anyway she took the XT with a triumphant flourish. This left a choice of Prescott, Gyle 59, Plain Sheep Dip, Dizzy Dick, Animal (XT) Grizzly and Cotswold Spring OSM MILD. Decided to play it safe and go for the mild which Desmond was on and it was in decent condition. Also noted four ciders plus, in a highly unusual move, mead. Didn’t see any mention of the bar snacks (rolls/pies/scotch eggs) mentioned elsewhere. Pretty quiet for a late Saturday afternoon and I have to admit I didn’t really take to the place. Perhaps I was unlucky? Desmond really liked it though but then again he didn’t have to take his first beer back. I guess I’d give it another go – the praise elsewhere is effusive. 6.5
