About the Pub

A multi-award winning free house, so no wonder the Crown is a busy pub, especially in the evenings. A choice of eight or so mostly changing beers are usually to be had, making it one of the town's more interesting cask ale outlets. Four neatly decorated rooms radiate from the busy bar, two compact snugs, a large lounge with feature overmantle mirror which most regulars regard as the best room in the pub, and to the right is an overspill room with plenty of standing space. The atmosphere is one of friendly professionalism aided by knowledgeable staff. Live music is a feature of weekends, with the large yard and attractive outdoor seating area to the rear often show-casing larger acts such as local rock bands, folk, acoustic and more. It serves too as a beer garden and barbecue area. This space has an outdoor bar that operates during the music events (no cask ale served from here though).
