Brimming with tales from the Charge of the Light Brigade and visited by scores of glamorous stage and screen stars, The Crown is a Grade 1-listed 15th century building fully-restored to provide delightful bars and high quality accommodation. Over the centuries the inn, which probably started as a coffee-house, has built an unrivalled reputation for warm and friendly hospitality. Locally we are known as The Cherry Brandy House, owing to a secret recipe for cherry brandy brought over by the Huguenots fleeing from the religious persecutions of Louis XIV. This secret recipe is now jealously guarded and bottles of what is almost certainly the most exclusive cherry brandy in the world cannot be bought from anywhere else except The Cherry Brandy House.
