About the Pub

A traditional and welcoming two bar village community pub which is also the brewery tap for the local Thurston’s brewery. The Crown is the local CAMRA branch's pub of the year and more recently became CAMRA's Surrey pub of the year. The focus of the pub is on serving great beer to their enthusiastic and loyal customer base. There are six hand pumps, three of which always serve Thurstons beers which are brewed just a one minute walk from the pub. Other locally brewed ales such as those from Surrey Hills and Tillingbourne often feature on the other three hand pumps. Antoinette runs the pub with the help of her very knowledgeable and experienced team, and her partner John runs the multi-award winning Thurston brewery, which was originally based at The Crown but is now located in its own building just two doors away from the pub.

There has been a pub on this same site since 1785 and probably back to 1613, the pub we see today was rebuilt in 1877 after a fire in the thatched roof destroyed the original pub. To the rear of the Crown is the car park and beyond that a very attractive enclosed garden which includes two pétanque terrains. Another outside drinking area to the side of the pub looks across to the village gardens. There are quiz nights every Wednesday, an ale festival in May each year and selected sporting events, especially Six Nations games, may be shown.
