WELCOME TO THE CROWN INN

An extensive home cooked menu is available every lunchtime alongside a lighter menu with sandwiches, baguettes and ploughmans. Our evening menu is available Tuesday-Saturday.[inclusive] Racked cask stillage is used for dispensing an excellent range of beers,with affordable house wines and hot drinks also available.

Our recently added separate dining area is proving to be very popular for business and club meetings as well as a great venue for birthday parties and other special occasions. Or, you could always dine 'al-fresco' on our covered patio area.

Why not break up the week by coming along to see us on a Wednesday night and listening to some great live jazz.
