A cosy two bar pub which is located near to a large former industrial area. The pub has good views across the nearby river Stour, looking across the estuary towards Essex. The access road and nearby ancient bridge was once part of the main road but has been by-passed for many years.
When the Xylonite factory was active, the Crown had a special license that allowed it to stay open ten minutes longer than normal so workers there could get a drink after leaving work.

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
