About
The Crown is a traditional 18thcentury pub that has been welcoming guests through its doors from near and far. Nestling in the attractive farming village of Goostrey, it has a charming community feel and historic, rural charm. Many of its original features remain, adding to its ‘village local’ character. The menu reflects the quintessential village pub fayre, but with a little twist. Steaks and Grills are the jewels in the Crown, as are our pub classics, nibbles, starters and desserts. Each whets the appetite of the hungry customer, always delicious, always surprising.

The chips tasted amazing, not sure how they do it but these are the tastiest chips we’ve had. Battered fish was massive and the batter felt perfect and light.
