A Note from the Local Management Team :-

All pub users, and even those who just walk by, will have seen an unfortunate decline in the village pub of late to the point it is now closed.

We all must appreciate a ‘good local’ is vital to any village as it provides a meeting and a place for us all to commune socially. It also has the capacity to support events and activities in the village, like concerts etc. It can provide a vital attraction to those who holiday in the area, giving refreshment, guidance and a place to meet others.

All this makes it important to have a great village pub, that’s warm, welcoming and a place where all are comfortable to go.

The great news is that after much work with Bateman’s, The Crown will soon re-open under a local licensee Iain Chambers who lives in the village. This has been made possible with help from local people who are assisting financially and with skills that will allow the pub not just to re-open, but be brought up to a high standard of environment and offer.

The pub is going to be open 7 days a week, with a food offer of Pizza/Pasta (Inc Takeaway) in the week and back to the traditional roast on Sunday’s. We will have a great range of beers, wines and spirits (including local gins!). Quality tea and Coffee will be served as well as pies and other snacks. Quiz nights, music and other events are planned.

We hope the pub will return to its place at the heart of the village and hope to work with the village societies to help them with their aims.

It’s going to take a while to get this standards right and re-fit kitchens etc. so the pub will remain closed until the 1st December whilst work is done in and out to bring it up to the standards we aspire to.

We hope in December you will join Iain at the pub and show your support by coming in for a drink or a meal, and make sure the pub can take its place once more in the heart of the village.

See you in the Trunch Crown!!!  Support your local
