The Crown is a place where locals meet and they always make visitors to the area welcome. Sproxton is primarily a farming community and the topics raised in conversation are broad and varied.
Don't expect to come into the Public Bar on any night and not be drawn into conversation!
If you want a private conversation we recommend using the Lounge Bar! Food is served in both bars as well as the restaurant.
Alan and Anna host a broad range of events from wine tasting, local bands, quizzes, Halloween nights, New Years Eve parties. Always open to all unless it is a private function.
If you have an occasion to celebrate they will be glad to host it.
Alan is a fine cellar man and rotates real ales from UK breweries large and small on a weekly basis. Plus two lagers and one draft cider. And the Guinness is always good!
In the winter there is always a lovely log fire going and the sofa’s surrounding it are very comfortable!
There is an outdoor petanque court in the garden which is well used in the summer.
There are tables in the patio garden for alfresco drinking and a year round marquee to retire to in the event of rain.
On a summer’s evening there is a regular weekly bike meet, weather permitting, the bikes park on the front apron to the pub. The conversation will always be about their machines. That is until the burgers and chips come out!
