Dating from the 17th century, the Crown was extended in the 1800s when it also incorporated an old brewery. A woman, perhaps a former landlady, reputedly haunts the pub and a ghostly man has also been seen. There are bars on two levels, the lower one being more traditional and contains a log fire. The bars operate different hours, so check the other bar if the pub appears closed! The pub name comes from it being on the crown of a hill and the pub has a number of attractive features including different shaped windows and Victorian wooden panelling. A number of board games can be played including chess, draughts, dominoes, Jenga and backgammon. Home-cooked food is served every session apart from Monday and is available all day on Sunday; a speciality is fresh seafood. The pub is family orientated with children welcome inside if under supervision. Outside is a good garden with a children’s play area.
