For our business continuity and our staff & customer welfare we are adopting the following rules until we feel we can reduce them further:

  • All staff will continue to wear masks inside to avoid close contact with customers and other staff.
  • Customers are welcome to wear masks but this will not be enforced for entry.
  • Drinks and food can be ordered from the bar again, but we will not allow customers to sit and drink at the bar just yet to avoid prolonged close contact.
  • T&T NHS check in QR codes will stay visible but will not be enforced for entry.

The Crown Inn Cholderton has 2 outside covered areas, an heated area and a waterproof roofed area. Plus we have a great play area, benches and a large field for ball games etc.

Together with our refurbished inside space, we have something for all weathers and temperatures, including food! Come and enjoy old favourites like fish & chips and homemade pies. Or try one of our Summer cold platters. Choose from Cheese, Farmhouse or Seafood.
