A former 16th century courthouse converted to a pub during the 18th century, though still used for the petty sessions after conversion, these were reported to be held in the Crown Inn in 1766.

It was renovated during the summer of 2013 and now stocks beer from Brewshed brewery (which now owns it).

The crown is a simple sign to show loyalty to the reigning monarch and apart from the commonwealth era (1648-60) has been a pub sign for over 600 years.
