The Crown Inn
With picturesque listed buildings, a well-preserved high street and the striking ruins of its palace, the medieval market town of Bishop’s Waltham is a haven for history-lovers. Sitting in the heart of the town in a delightful 16th-century coaching inn is the popular pub and hotel The Crown Inn. With eight luxurious bedrooms, it’s the perfect place to retreat to at the end of a busy day. Visitors can refresh themselves with an outstanding real ale – sample the likes of London Pride, Seafarers and Southern Star. The Crown also holds great appeal for foodies, who can enjoy the likes of devilled mushrooms with duck egg and sweet brioche to start. Follow with tender lamb and roasted faggots served with creamy flageolet beans adorned with salsa verde. To finish, the lemon tart with smooth raspberry sorbet will not disappoint.
