The Crown & Thistle is a hotel in the centre of Abingdon. It seems more suited to residents and diners than drinkers. However if you want a civilised drink in pleasant surroundings, it is a decent option. The Stocks Bar and a restaurant are amongst a number of areas surrounding a central courtyard. Ales are from Fuller's. They had London Pride & Oliver's Island on my visit in both the bar and the restaurant. The prices are eye-watering. I rarely moan at pub prices. But this really does take the biscuit.

Purchased last year by Oakman Inns and refurbished at a cost of £1.8 million apparently.

Oh dear, oh dear. What is going on with this place!! How can a pub that was in the good beer guide only a year ago slide down hill so badly!! Very poor selection of ale, apparently the new managemant don't care much for the stuff and can't be bothered, even though it still has 7 hand pumps!! Such a shame!

Stopped for Sunday lunch recently - the place felt a little confused. One one side, it had great real ale, good food, and a historical building and ambience. One the other side, the toilets were grubby and gratified, lots of TVs, gaudy signs promoting cheap alcopops, and notices warning people that they would be banned if caught using drugs on the premises. For Sunday lunch, it was perfectly pleasant, and I would return - but it just felt you could get a totally different experience at another part of the week (say later on a Friday night).

This pub is an absolute dive. Popped in one Saturday early evening on our way to somewhere else. Will never return! Used to be good for footie matches, but I am talking about Euro '96 - looks as if nothing has been done since well before then. The loos are disgusting and the staff were pretty non-plussed at having to serve someone. The decor is dated, grubby and just nasty!
