In the light of the government announcement of March 20th, all pubs are now closed until further notice.
Some of them may well still be offering a takeaway beer service and some others will also be selling food takeaways, perhaps even with delivery. If you can give any of our pubs some support through these terrible times by buying some takeaway food or drink, please do so. Our pubs need as much support of possible if they're going to still be there for us when the crisis is over.
closed 3th August 1966.

The Crown was built early in the 16th century, with early 17th century additions. It's now called Crown House.
Although the Listed Buildings register says a house in Shop Street was also a pub called the Crown, we think this may be inaccurate. Certainly old maps show a Crown beerhouse in this location and it changes from a beerhouse to "Crown House" at about the time the licensing record shows it closing.
