The Crown and Cushion has played a dramatic role in British history.
The 16th century country pub – boasting oak beams and historic fireplaces – was the scene of the capture of the infamous Colonel Thomas Blood, the daring Irish-born soldier who stole the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London in 1671.
Things have calmed down since that day – though a ghost is said to make its presence felt – and the Crown and Cushion is now renowned for its restaurant-level food, fine wines and Shepherd Neame ales.
The picturesque pub also features a large garden with a heated canopy and car park.
The Crown and Cushion is an ideal location for a variety of functions: its neighbouring 16th century barn with a striking, feature fireplace makes the perfect setting for wedding receptions, parties and business meetings. It can cater for 150 people.
