Crown Inn3 High Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This 18th century listed three story inn sits at the heart of the village on the old main road from Northampton to Rugby. It is accessed by a short flight of steps from the pavement and the front door leads into an open plan bar area, much altered from the original by "Watneyfication" in the 60's and 70's. Two separate drinking/games areas are at situated at either end of the long bar. The pub is privately owned by a local family. Manager Paddy Malone, has a very enlightened policy regarding his well kept real ales and with the exception of the house regular, Marston's Pedigree, all three other rotating guest beers are sourced from local micro (and slightly larger) breweries, such as Towcester Mill, Potbelly, Langton's, and Phipps NBC, plus many more. A recent innovation has seen the opening of six letting B&B rooms on the upper floors and evening meals are now served from Monday to Thursday only. The pub is a participant in the CAMRA discount scheme, so show your membership card to get 30p/pint or 15p/half off.
