The Olde Punch Bowl is among the older places in Crawley. Attractive place outside and in. Interior is updated, but maintains the old pub feel. Big windows on one side help alot. Waitress staff is very pleasant. Good daily specials which, compared to the rest of the offerings in Crawley, are a good bet.
This is a really nice pub to go to either after work or on a night out. It has a really nice beer garden which has recently been refurbished. The people that drink in here ranges from young to old. It has a pool table if you wanted a game of pool which might be a bit difficult after a few drinks!! In the winter there are seating areas by the log fire, which is a nice touch! The drinks are reasonably priced though I would avoid the house wine!! The toilet facilities could be improved but overall a really nice pub and definitely worth a visit. It has a really good atmosphere.
Quite expensive and gets packed very quickly due to size and shape. Staff always seem run off their feet and just want to serve you so that they can serve someone else.
I came to this pub very recently. The pub itself is very comfortable and warm. For those of you who smoke, it has 2 patio areas where people are allowed to come out for a cigarette. The range of beers, wines and liqueurs are extensively good. The pub is clean and this includes the toilets. It has a big screen and the music plays just at the right level. It also has a pool table close to the toilet's area. The staff could smile a bit more but I suppose at busy times this might be a hard thing to do so I don't take this as a negative aspect. The pub offers food although 2 days ago when I visited, they were looking for a chef so I am not too sure I would be eating there 'till they have a proper chef.
Comfortable area to hang out with friends after work. Food I have tried there is good. Staff provides excellent service and very polite. I had a soup that tasted a bit off today and was offered a new bowl of different soup immediately. Definitely one of my favourite pubs.
