We live in Anstey and it is great to have such a nice pub in the village. The food is great, with some special offers in the week. There Sunday lunch 3 course menu is delightful! And are willing to accomodate any changes or requests. We have been for several meals since it was taken over in dec 09 and only ever had one issue which was handled great and 25% was knocked off of the total bill. They welcome families and do great food for my 2 and 4 year old who split one childs meal due to the ample size.The staff are very friendly and we always feel welcome.

The pub was re-opened at Christmas (2009) and is fantastic. The interior has been totally remodeled and looks great. The new management and staff are very friendly and professional. The food is the best around these parts by far.The drinks menu caters for all tastes, from espressos to vintage wines and luxuriant spirits.The drinks prices are a little higher than the other village pubs, but that is no bad thing in my opinion. The smart/casual dress code is also a welcome introduction.

Friends of ours have just taken over the Crown, a total transformation. Great food, friendly service - well worth a visit.

Having been to the crown a few time since the new owners have taken over..here are my viewsIf you are under 18 then this is the pub for you..The landlord is happy to serve drinks to underage kids.The children are allowed to run freely throughtout the pub, sometimes a bit to much...also allowed to climb on the furniture and generally run riot, but if you have kids and you are happy with this then why not give the place a visit.The food, what food..it has been a long time since they offered anything other than a packet of crispsThis pub really needs to get its act together.....need I say more

The Crown Inn in Anstey, just 4 miles from Leicester city centre, epitomises all that is good when it comes to a small local pub. My girlfriend lives in Anstey and The Crown has become our local haunt. It offers a friendly local drinking environment with an excellent selection of beers, wines and spirits. Prices are slightly ... Read the complete review
