About the Pub

Family run free house, oozing charm and enjoying a sunny outlook over the village green and church. Situated in fine walking country and a short stroll from Groombridge Place, the pub is a strong supporter of Kent and Sussex ales. Quality food available for patrons (book for Sunday lunch), and biscuits for their dogs. Cosy in winter with beams, snug and inglenook fireplace. The Tunbridge Wells bus drops you outside the door, or arrive on the Spa Valley Railway. In winter the Crown closes earlier on Sundays at 9pm.
