I called in to this pub one afternoon. I was the only person in the meals section. After standing at the bar where you order meals for 7 minutes I asked the barman if anyone was taking orders. He replied "I suppose so". After waiting a further 4 minutes I asked him if he could recommend a pub nearby that had better service, meals and treat customers better. He gave me directions to another pub.
He was spot on. Had a great meal and great service at the Mossbrook just down the road.
Visited the pub last night as the designated driver. Asked for a pint of shandy. I watched in disbelief as the bar person filled a pint glass 75% full of lemonade and then had the cheek to top it up with approximately 20% of beer. Is this the modern day equivalent of watering the beer down to make it go further?
No wonder the pub was empty at 9:30PM. If they are doing this with a shandy what are doing with the rest of the beer?
When I used to work behind the bar a pint of shandy was 50/50 and still tasted like a pint of beer, not a pint of p***.
Hi all the customers at the Crown & Glove. The C&G has now got the best beer in the village, so customers say. Forget about all the jealous types who would like it for their own. The landlord is not always drunk but is trying to buy it as a free house. Watch this space.
I have recently visited the Crown & Glove at Stannington for the first time in a number of years and was totally shocked by the change to this once lovely pub.
As you walk in you are immediately confronted by the smell of the pub's dogs, followed by the dogs themselves. The landlord was totally drunk and using very offensive language. I talked to one or two of the locals about this and apparently it is a common occurrence. Also one of the dogs urinated on the seating.
It is such a shame this once lovely pub has descended to this level. I for one will not be returning until the present landlord has departed!
