A country pub in Church Enstone, serving quality local ales, beers and cider and seasonal dishes using fresh & local ingredients.

The Crown has five luxurious guest rooms and a fully refurbished one-bed self-catering cottage called ‘Crown Cottage’ next door to the pub.

The Crown was originally built to accommodate the workers who restored and developed St Kenelm’s Church in the 16th Century and rumour has it Charles I once stayed at the inn (hence why it is called the Crown), when he visited from Oxford.

The pub offers a weekly-changing Sunday lunch menu. There’s also a sandwich board menu, traditional British desserts and for children, The Crown offers half size, half-price portions of most dishes on the menus.

Owners and locals, Victoria and George Irvine, bought The Crown in May 2018 and it is central to village life and a real community hub, welcoming both locals and visitors to the area.

George, a renowned local artist, and Victoria, chose a simple, rustic palette of soft greys and chalky whites to create a fresh, relaxing vibe that complements and highlights the inn’s airy interiors and its many original features, including exposed oak beams, flagstone and reclaimed timber floors overlaid with Turkish kilims.
