Info about The Crown & Thistle

With three stunning spaces to choose from, The Crown & Thistle offers an ideal setting for any event or occasion. Accommodating up to 60 seated or 100 standing guests, The Barn blends the charm of 17th century timber beams and stone walls with modern amenities such as a private bar, free superfast WiFi, and state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment. Our civil ceremony licence makes this space particularly well suited to weddings, from the first guest’s arrival to the final dance.

For smaller, less formal events we offer our galleried room, Minstrells. Located behind our main bar, Minstrells is the oldest part of our venue and it’s believed to have been built using one of the original walls of the neighbouring abbey. A number of alcoves and dining spaces within our restaurant also offer privacy and convenience.


Whether your event is an informal celebration or formal business meeting, our coordinators are on hand to deliver a bespoke dining experience to suit both you and your guests.


• The 400-year-old, grade II listed coaching inn has been flawlessly restored to suit modern tastes.

• 18 individual en-suite bedrooms including a beautiful bridal suite

• 17th century function room for private events with up to 100 guests
