If you have not heard about Chris Wheeler at The Crown yet, then add it to your must-visit list! Having been Chef Patron and Owner at The Crown for just over 18 months, Chris and his team offer a delightful mix of classic dishes and fine dining. They also host various events, including Ladies Lunches, Wine & Dine Evenings, and this Summer – they will be serving street-food-style dishes outside.

The Crown is an all-weather venue with cosy indoor areas for Autumn and Winter, sunny spots for those warmer months and even a stretch tent for those seeking some shade. As well as the bar and restaurant, they cater for private events and are always evolving to meet the changing preferences of their clients. This hidden gem offers a relaxed atmosphere paired with the luxury and signature cuisine of Chris Wheeler.

You can immerse yourself even further in the tranquillity of this historic venue by booking a stay in one of The Crown’s luxurious rooms. Following a recent refurbishment, they blend historic elegance with modern sophistication, ensuring a delightful stay and enchanting memories.
