The Crown at Ampney Brook: The Best Sunday Lunch Near Cirencester

Nestled in the picturesque Cotswolds countryside, The Crown at Ampney Brook marries 16th-century charm with modern dining finesse — and it's arguably the best place for Sunday lunch in Gloucestershire. With a rich history and unrivalled service, we extend a warm invitation to join us for a memorable Sunday lunch experience.

A Gloucestershire Sunday lunch experience like no other

What makes Sunday lunch at The Crown so special? Firstly, there's our commitment to serving the finest food from Gloucestershire and the surrounding area. We take immense pride in sourcing our ingredients from handpicked British suppliers, ensuring we support our local farms and producers.

Then there's our menu, which blends the time-tested classics with new and exciting dishes. Take our starters for example, which include our tantalising bang-bang cauliflower served with sriracha and sesame mayo, or our showstopping Nduja Scotch egg.

But the real hero of our menu is our Sunday roast. Choose from a spread that includes honey roast pork belly, a delectable dry-aged rump cap of British beef, or our veggie favourite — the wild mushroom and lentil Wellington. All of this is complemented by beef-dripping Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes and veg. Not to mention — of course — lashings of house gravy.

For those with a sweet tooth? Our apple & gooseberry crumble paired with St Ewe egg custard is a treat not to be missed. Or perhaps the signature sticky toffee pudding, a decadent blend of French vanilla gelato and miso caramel sauce.
