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 Between 1912 and the late-1930s.

The Crown is not shown on any available OS map (at least as early as 1885). The 1909 Rates book has "late" added to the pub's listing, so it evidently closed some time between 1912 (the last directory entry found so far) and the 1930s.
