Welcome to The Crown Inn

The Crown Inn was built in 1751, on the border of Wales, set in the shadow of the magnificent Black Mountains. In the centre of Longtown it was once one of seven pubs/cider houses and for many years was owned by West Country Breweries, Ltd., as a tied house. Set in the Olchon valley, just off Offas Dyke Pathway and in the middle of the Golden valley, it is the ideal place to stay and explore both England & Wales whilst getting a true feel for typical village life.

It was successfully run from 1974 for over twenty years by a local family who did a huge amount of work to improve the property by converting the garage into a dining room, building a large games room, bringing the toilets inside the pub and replacing the snug area to create the bar that you see today. They did an amazing amount of work improving the pub, whilst retaining its character.

In 1988 it became a free house.

Families are welcome and there is an enclosed garden area at the rear of the pub. (Thinking of staying?- visit our bed & breakfast page).

Children are welcome and the menu caters for all the family, from the young to the old.

Choose from either the Bar Menu or the Restaurant Menu. Deserts and Specials Of The Day are available from a separate board in the bar, choosing which one to have is your only problem.
