The pub appears on the 1904 OS map but has gone by the 1975 sheet (intermediate ones are insufficiently detailed). Presumably it closed between 1916 (the last directory entry found so far) and 1975. The building dates from about 1600, though it's much rebuilt since.
Five borders are listed in 1891 and the Crown is listed as a commercial hotel in 1900 & 1912.
