The
Experience

The Crown is all things to all men, a lovely country pub, a popular local restaurant, a small boutique hotel, a welcoming bolthole in Constable country. It sits in a pretty village with long views from its colourful terrace over the Box Valley, not a bad spot for a glass of Pimm’s after a day exploring the area. It dates to 1560 and has old beams and timber frames, though interiors have youthful good looks: warm colours, tongue-and-groove panelling, terracotta-tiled floors, a fancy wine cellar behind a wall of glass. You’ll find rugs and settles, the daily papers, leather armchairs in front of a wood-burner. Four ales wait at the bar, 30 wines come by the glass and there’s seasonal food that will make you smile, perhaps confit duck leg ravioli, pan-roasted cod with chorizo and crayfish, popcorn panna cotta. Airy bedrooms are quietly hidden away at the bottom of the garden – excellent beds, lovely linen, a dash of colour and super bathrooms. All have armchairs or sofas, three have French windows that open onto private terraces with fine views. A great place to eat, sleep and potter.
