New Era

This is a new venture for us, but both of us have worked in hospitality for many years and want to maintain the same warm atmosphere and sense of community at the Crown as there has always been.

Refurbishment of the Crown is now complete and we are open Tuesday to Sunday. See header for details.

So why not take a look at our menu and come and see what we have done? There are classic pub dishes like fish and chips, steaks, platters to share and of course Sunday roasts.

For bookings please call 01980 629247.

Plus on Friday 10th December from 8pm we have live music from Splat the Rat. See our What's On page for details.

If we haven't already, we are really looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you back to the Crown.

The Crown a traditional cosy pub with a large courtyard area at the front and an acre of grounds at the back complete with an exciting Play Park.

The Crown has been a pub for over 350 years providing a friendly venue at the heart of the local community whilst also welcoming visitors to the area.

The pub has recently been extensively renovated internally and externally. This includes a completely new bar and drinks! A whole fresh new look to welcome you back while still maintaining the original character.

Together with our refurbished inside space, the Crown Inn Cholderton has 2 outside covered areas, an heated area and a waterproof roofed area. Plus we have a great play area, benches and a large field for ball games etc. So something for all weathers and temperatures.

See you soon.

We will continue to source as many of the ingredients as possible from local suppliers to create your homemade traditional favourites, like pies and roasts, as well as offering some new dishes too.
