104 High Street
A traditional and welcoming two bar village community pub which is also the brewery tap for the local Thurston’s brewery. The Crown is the local CAMRA branch's pub of the year and more recently became CAMRA's Surrey pub of the year. The focus of the pub is on serving great beer to their enthusiastic and loyal customer base. There are six hand pumps, three of which always serve Thurstons beers which are brewed just a one minute walk from the pub. Other locally brewed ales such as those from Surrey Hills and Tillingbourne often feature on the other three hand pumps. Antoinette runs the pub with the help of her very knowledgeable and experienced team, and her partner John runs the multi-award winning Thurston brewery, which was originally based at The Crown but is now located in its own building just two doors away from the pub. There has been a pub on this same site since 1785 and probably back to 1613, the pub we see today was rebuilt in 1877 after a fire in the thatched roof destroyed the original pub. To the rear of the Crown is the car park and beyond that a very attractive enclosed garden which includes two pétanque terrains. Another outside drinking area to the side of the pub looks across to the village gardens. There are quiz nights every Wednesday, an ale festival in May each year and selected sporting events, especially Six Nations games, may be shown.

It has had several different owners in recent years, with Shepherd Neame purchasing the pub in the early 2000s and selling it onto local Surrey-based pub company Barons in July 2013. However, the pub is still branded as Shepherd Neame and continues to sell their beers.The pub dates from the 16th century. The flagstone floored main bar area is quite small, with a low ceiling some beams giving it a quite compact feel. Most tables are set for dining, but the area nearest the bar, has more comfortable chairs, where you are welcome to just drink. The walls are adorned with a variety of mirrors, primarily in Art Deco style, contrasting with the otherwise quite traditional feel. However, on sunny the days, the majority of customers will be found in the gardens and outdoor dining areas, which surround the pub, much of which overlooks the adjacent cricket pitch. All the tables have numbers to aid food ordering and wood-burners help keep the chill off on cooler evenings. An interesting feature is the Meads Hall, a conversion of two 16th century barns, one of which was transported to the site in the 1970s and now rebuilt and styled as a medieval banqueting hall. It is open to all for Sunday lunch and hosts occasional arts event; otherwise it can be booked for functions and parties, being very popular for weddings.
