Drinks menu




Known locally as ‘the pie pub‘, it’s fair to say we’ve got a passion for pastry. We’re always baking up new batches – that’s why the menu is changing all the time.


Not just a dining destination, The Crown & Tuns is a popular watering hole too. Approved by and given a 5* hygiene rating by Cask Marque, we serve a fabulous range of well-kept drinks!


Pubs don’t come much older than this one – it’s been around since Henry VIII times, early 16th Century. Take a look around it with our virtual tour or learn about us in our FAQ section.
