Mill Ln, IP14 3DW
grid reference TL 996 577
Set close to a disused tower mill, with fine views over open countryside. Various old tools decorate the main lounge/dining area. The public bar is a smaller separate room.
The pub had reopened after lockdown, but has had to close again. A note on the door says ""Due to the decline in Fiona's health we are currently Closed".
We wish Fiona a quick recovery.
A former Greene King pub, now free.
The Crown is shown on this old OS map from about 1903 (interactive map)
