One star - A pub interior of special national historic interest
Listed Status: II23 Crown Passage
The building probably dates from the early or mid-nineteenth century but what we see inside seems to be of about 1930 with lots of panelling typical of the time giving the pub a cosy feel. At that time there would no doubt have been two bars, hence the two outside doors, both of which are labelled saloon on their door-plates. The attractive leaded casement windows with colourful roundels featuring a tulip-like design are certainly old as are the glazed and panelled doors. The change in the wall panelling on the right-hand side by the window suggests that perhaps the servery with its inter-war panelled counter once occupied this area and may have been moved. The pot-shelf with its stained and leaded panels is modern. The small upstairs lounge has no old fittings.
