Sited on a sharp corner as you head into Little Walden the Crown is directly in front of you when you drive in from Hadstock & Linton, there is ample parking at the rear of the building (take the turning on the right immediately in front of the pub then first left) and a lovely beer garden to the left.
We always head to the Crown at Little Walden when we are looking for somewhere local for lunch with friends or family. It is unpretentious, comfortable and welcoming. The menu is large enough for everyone to find something they like, yet not so vast you spend half your visit trying to decide what to order. The landlord & staff are friendly & knowledgable about their choice of local beers which are poured directly from the barrels at the back of the bar, & have always been beautifully kept from our not inconsiderable experience, & during the winter months there is always a lovely fire burning in the grate.
The food at the Crown is good & hearty, the portions are substantial and the overall standard of cusine is better than your average pub. There is a sandwich menu available from the bar & a blackboard displaying the more filling dishes over the fireplace. The menu ranges from hand battered cod & chips, through to homemade burgers & pies to pan-fried duck - there is a good choice of homemade puds too.
Dogs are welcome in the bar area - they're normally hogging the fire - and kids are welcome too! All in all this is a great pub serving great good - a hidden treasure if you can be bothered to take a detour of the main Cambridge - Haverhill road.
