We all do it. The Big Ben chimes for midnight and we all make resolutions which are doomed to fail and, by mid-January, the exercise bike is gathering dust, the gym membership has joined the unused loyalty cards at the back of your wallet and, as for learning a new language, unless you next holiday consists entirely of navigating between train stations, you’d best hope they speak English. If, however, you have resolved to try new things in 2017 then here at the Crown Inn, we have got your back.
At the Crown Inn we are passionate about wine and want to help you discover new, unique and interesting wines without the sort of stuffy pretention and unnecessary jargon you often associate with quality wine. This knowledgeable but down-to-earth approach has earned the Crown Inn a loyal following of customers who come to us to sample and enjoy an extensive range of some of the best drinking wines available today.
We are so committed to helping you discover the best wines the world has to offer that, every year, Richard (Crown manager and wine expert) covers literally thousands of miles to discover and source wine for our cellar. Whatever your preference, from crisp whites to deep, complex reds, you can be sure to discover something new to excite your taste buds.
Of course, great wine is often best enjoyed as an accompaniment to great food. With this in mind, why not join us for supper and experience fantastic food in relaxed and comfortable surroundings. Our passionate staff offer attentive, yet non-intrusive service and can help match one of our freshly prepared dishes to the perfect wine from a choice of over 300 bins (and more than 30 available by the glass). If you have made it this far with your New Years resolutions in tact (well done by the way) then we offer a number of lighter, healthy dishes for you to enjoy, although our range of puddings may prove a little too tempting.
We look forward to seeing you in 2017 and welcoming you to our inn, restaurant and boutique hotel. To give you a little taste of the wines available, you can view a selection of our current stock online on the Our Cellar page. Whilst you’re there, check out our supper menu and book your table online. We always have specials available in our restaurant and will post about these, and new additions to the menu, right here at the Crown Inn blog.
See you soon! – The Crown Team
