For Over 300 years this Inn has been welcoming visitors and travelers from far away places as well as providing a well earned opportunity for chat and recuperation for the locality. We are a family run free house establishment and the Crown Team are part of that spirit. 

A hidden gem located in the rural Oxfordshire village of Church Enstone, the perfect spot for any occasion from a spontaneous lunch to celebratory dinner, in either our flag stoned bar area, restaurant, conservatory or our lovely garden.

Thomas Clavier , our Head Chef , fully embraces the ingredients on offer according to the seasons.  Our lamb is from Over Worton and our beef grown in Oxfordshire. We like to keep the menu interesting and so change starters and mains roughly by the month. The Crown Classics that include the legendary Crown burger , our pies and Hooky Battered Cod and homemade Chips are there to stay. 

We enjoy sourcing some of the best Ales and Beers both locally and nationally.

Our conservatory and restaurant are available for private parties. Including wedding parties where we would be delighted to discuss your ideas and we can share ours!
