About The Crown at Playhatch

A charming 16th century Country Inn with an excellent restaurant and luxurious modern accommodation. Set in the picturesque hamlet of Playhatch, nestled between the Thames and the Chilterns area of outstanding natural beauty, yet conveniently close to Reading, Henley-on-Thames and Maidenhead. The Crown has become known for its excellent food and friendly service. We have moved to sourcing our fresh produce locally wherever possible since the arrival in February 2009 of Award Wining Head Chef Matt van Wyck (Winner of the Crafts Guild Pub Restaurant Chef of the Year 2009). Our varied menu ranges from the simple and expertly made 'Steak and Brakspear ale' pie to more adventurous and modern English dishes and is complemented by an extensive but reasonable wine list with many wines available by the glass.

Sunday roast

This is one of our locals and we have been here both in the summer and now going into Autumn. I am very pleased to say that the food is always delicious and the service is friendly and efficient. We were here last Sunday and even though we didn't book a table we were allowed to sit in the bar area, which was equally comfortable, but what really makes this restaurant and why we go back time and time again is the excellent food. Well done.
