Our Pubs

As we’re sure you know, pubs could open from the 4th July 2020 after a forced closure due to COVID-19.

Many of our pubs are now open but we recommend you check the pub’s website or social media accounts to check the details as there may be reduced opening hours.

Things are subject to change and as pubs find their way in these uncertain times, we ask for your patience and to check each pub’s social media accounts for the latest news.

The Crown is a charming 16th century inn that offers a warm welcome, excellent food plus superb accommodation and plenty of space for parties, meetings and weddings. Set in the picturesque hamlet of Playhatch, and close to Reading, Henley-on-Thames and Maidenhead, The Crown is the perfect place to get away from it all. Enjoy a roaring log fire in the winter, join us for an excellent meal on a weekend, or settle yourself into a comfy chair in the garden and relax with a glass of chilled wine on a warm summer’s evening. The Crown is a family-friendly pub and children have their own menu. The barn is the perfect venue for wedding receptions or business functions alike. They also have ten stunning bedrooms if you’re looking for an overnight stay.
