The Crown is an historic, family-run country pub. A great place to come and relax for a good local pint, traditional homemade food or as a base for a short break in one of the UK's most picturesque locations. Enjoy a summers afternoon on the terrace overlooking the river, or a winters evening in front of our roaring log fires in our cosy bar or larger lounge. We also have a pool table in the rear of the pub.
Camping at the Crown is a haven of peace and transquility. We welcome individuals and groups wanting to get away from it all in a natural setting with a spirit of adventure! Privately set within 6 acres of ancient woodland and pasture, along a half mile stretch of the River Alwen, we offer camping for those who want to get back to basics with a night under the stars and a real camp fire.
We specialise in no-nonsense traditional food prepared in-house from locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. Our meat comes from Bala Butchers. We offer a full menu lunch and dinner. Breakfast is available for campers if pre-booked the night before.
As a totally Free House we have the choice to source the finest real ales from anywhere, but we specialise in real cask ales from local Welsh breweries We have three real ale pumps. Our signature bitter is Jewel in the Crown supplied exclusively to the Inn by Master Brewer David Facer of Facers Brewery. Other regularly rotated local ales include Flintshire Bitter, Splendid Ale and Abbey Red.
We cater for families both within the pub and in the beer garden. Children must be supervised at all times particularly along the pasture land, riverbank and woodlands.
The Crown is a family and dog friendly pub - after all we are a family of big kids and have two gorgeous flat coated retrievers ourselves!Dogs are welcome both inside and outside but they must be on a leash at all times. We appreciate that all good dog owners ensure that their dogs are under control and that any fouling is removed.
