About the Pub

Large corner building situated in a prominent position at the centre of the town. With the arrival of the railway in the 1850s, the Crown (as it was then) became a local institution thanks to its proximity to the Station just down the hill. As a result the former Inn expanded into a Hotel, such was its dominance in the town that for many years after it was simply known as 'The Hotel'. It reverted to its public house status following a fire in 1968. The current pub spreads over the ground floor, with two main rooms (the front one having a pool table), plus a large separate restaurant area; the latter has some unusual nooks for a more intimate gathering. The new landlord is very keen on serving consistantly high-quality real ale, and so the other handpumps (one of which is not tied to Enterprise) offer a constantly changing and interesting selection from around the country. Unusually, the cider is also handpumped from the cellar. This all no doubt helped the pub gaining the (branch) Pub of the Season, Spring 2018 award. The White Rat is also offered via a Randall pump, a very interesting alternative which has proved very popular. Bar meals are available in addition to the more formal restaurant offering.
