Old Crown Coaching Inn25 Market Place
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
16th century coaching inn built on much older foundations and was used to billet Royalist officers during the Civil War. Housed a court room and the infamous Judge Jeffreys is reputed to have held one of his 'Bloody Assizes' here. The Rawdon Bar at the front of the hotel has a number of 'snugs' one with an entrance to a tunnel leading to the nearby church. The Courtyard Bar as its name suggests opens onto the cobbled courtyard and leads on to Judge Jeffreys Restaurant and Carvery. Hotel reception is at the rear of the building with access from the car park.
Currently undergoing refurbishment, restaurant and kitchen closed but bars still open. Fourteen rooms are now available.
