While on holiday we popped in to the Crown, we knew Helen but had only met Si for the first time last year. As soon as we walked through the door it was Hello Doug, we were made to feel like locals Si had remembered...More

A disappointing family meal - a cold room with a very average meal. The pub caters for drinkers with a welcoming bar but sadly diners are not so lucky.

Lovely village pub. Great atmosphere and lots of good local ales, which my husband sampled. Delicious freshly cooked meal. Limited menu, which means home-made ;). Very welcoming, as we have found on previous visits. We'll be back again soon ... Thank you.

After a gorgeous flower filled spring walk along the river Caldew we called at the Old crown for lunch ...the beer was spot on and the lunchtime service was quick and efficient.

A co-operative run pub which led to a great village atmosphere. Beer brewed on the premises was excellent and some beers had a 'story' which made visit more interesting. We didn;t eat there but we would definitely try food when we next visit.
