The Crown Inn at Sarre has welcomed a variety of distinguished guests over the years, from novelist Charles Dickens to Prime Minister Edward Heath.

Its obvious appeal – its 15th century origins, comfortable accommodation, good food, warm hospitality and lovely garden – continues to be discovered by countless visitors.

The Crown Inn is known locally as the Cherry Brandy House on account of its sale of the popular drink.

The Grade I listed building boasts an impressive history. It is thought to have started life as a coffee house and features a priesthole. It is, perhaps, no wonder that the BBC Ghosthunters programme filmed at The Crown Inn.

Open all day, every day, the Crown Inn has much to offer, from fine food and accommodation to a wide selection of ales and wines and the friendliest of welcomes.
