we had the pleasure of staying at the Crown in Feb 2014 and we came away wanting to live there!!! we were holidaying from Australia and staying with friends in Portsmouth before setting off on a driving tour of UK. we did get lost and got to the inn around 7pm, flustered and cold. we were met with the warmest and friendliest welcome ever! we settled in and came back down to the bar to have a quick drink and go back to bed after much driving but instead found ourselves immersed in the local tradition of chatting by the fire until the wee small hours. we didnt want to leave in the morning and have since found ourselves saying "you know, if we could buy an inn like that, my husband could run the bar until he goes to work on night duty and i could take over when i get back from my late shift and during the day when he is asleep, i can do the running of the place". maybe give up nursing altogether and be a local!! it is definitely on our list of places to go back to and i cant believe i actually scored such a great place to stay on a quick search of the internet the night before we arrived. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!!
