Old Crown Pub


SquareMeal Review of Old Crown Pub

Walking into the this village pub on the northern edge of the Lakes, just beneath the Caldbeck Fells, you might think it was simply a regular boozer serving some cracking good ale, but the snaps of Prince Charles with a pint of Doris’s 90th suggest there might be more to it. In 2003, when the locals feared their watering hole would be sold off to one of the big-name chains, they clubbed together & bought it – making the Old Crown the first co-operatively owned pub in the country. Now it has its own microbrewery & received HRH’s blessing when he visited as part of his ‘Pub’s the Hub’ campaign. They now serve six home-brewed ales, along with a daily menu of pub classics such as steak & ale pie, haddock & chips or gammon & pineapple.
