A real traditional pub near (but with no direct access) to the River Trent set on the Cavendish bridge. The bars are full of 'ale' related memorabilia, and always seems very popular. It is a Marstons pub with the staples Pedi, Old Empire and New world IPA, but also had three guests; Wolverhampton Brewery 'Sunbeam', Ringwood 'Showmans Tipple' & Brakspear 'Oxford Gold'. Food is real pub grub, and reasonably priced. The garden is a bit of a hotch-potch, with chickens and goats, an old phone box and (to be honest) need a bit of gardening. But, The tables are new and if you have kids there is a climbing frame and (even better) a Trampoline! Recommended...

Not in the current Beer Guide, but on return visit last Friday the Marston Old Empire was fantastic, and this remains one of my favourite traditional pubs. Welcoming to a wide range of customers, and the fish and chips were superb.

Popped in for lunch last weekend based on reviews on this site - wasn't disappointed. A friendly welcome, good service, and they could well with 9 of us arriving together. Sunday lunch was good - generous portions, and good roast beef (veggies were a little over-cooked). Good range of beers, but unfortunately driving so unable to sample - will definitely need to return.

Fantastic traditional pub, with it's own character though reminiscent of several village pub around Derbyshire (e.g. Dead Poets). Excellent beers from the Marston's range, good rolls and snacks, comfortable bench seating and as much pub memorabilia as you could dream of.

Visited recently on a Friday night and they had a mini beer fest on. Excellent beers well kept and a good atmosphere inside the pub. Didnt try any of the other pubs in Shardlow of which there are several but would certainly visit the Old Crown again.
