My trip to the North Lakes on holiday wouldn't be complete without a visit to Britain's first community owned pub, The Old Crown.

Situated in the centre of this pretty village its also the home to the Hesket Newmarket Brewery. The only beers are from HN and there were a total of 9 available during my visit. I went for a pint of Skiddaw @ 3.6%.

Lovely carved wooden motifs on the bar front. Open plan fireplace, lots of plaques and pictures on the walls, including the 2 plaques depicting Prince Charles visits in 2004 & 2007.

A real gem and a lovely pub, that even though it's fairly remote to get to without a car its a must visit.

Like others on here, I have visited this pub previously when in the area, and did so again on a quiet Wednesday night. Despite it being quiet however, it did not disappoint and where other pubs can suffer from a lack of atmosphere, this retains it in spades.
Still a great pub, with several rooms, a real fire and a bar serving Landlord as well as their own Hesket Newmarket beers, Skiddaw, Doris's 90th Birthday and the best of the lot, Dark Sail.
If you are in this area of Cumbria, this is a must visit.

Excellent country pub for the drinking man but after several visits can only describe the food as passable.

A great pub that I visit every time I'm in the area to see my old school friend. The range of beers is always good, with some of the stronger ones on in rotation as and when they're brewed. The food is good and hearty in large portions. The place has a really nice feel to it whatever time of day you go in and the locals are more than friendly.

Went here for a saturday evening whilst staying up the road in Caldbeck. A real gem, just like a pub should be. Lovely selection of beers from their own brewery - tried as many as I could! Interesting things dotted about all over. There were 8 of us, and I had booked a table in the restaurant; Food and service both good, pleasant staff. Didn't want to leave, but the wife made me!
