A wonderful, privately owned and historic country inn located in the centre of the village which has undergone a no expenses spared restoration in recent times. Well worth a visit for its architectural features alone including a fine heavily timbered restaurant (12-3 + 7-10pm) and separate bar area. Also offers luxury accommodation (12 rooms) and disabled access and toilet.
The Crown was built in 1495 as a merchant's house and has been an inn since the mid 17th cent.

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.
