The Crown
Where Friends Meet

The Crown Inn first opened in the 1840s and has been an important part of the local community ever since. Today it is still a traditional pub and now also has an admirable reputation for it’s food.

After two years as head chef and then also manager, Ben Simmons has been the pub’s tenant since early 2013. He oversees the smooth running of The Crown with the help of his wife Michelle and their team of dedicated staff. After developing an interest in cooking at an early age, Ben went on to complete his chef training in the Armed Forces. In 2004 he started at The Coterie Restaurant, Widnes, working his way up to head chef before coming to The Crown.

The Crown Inn will continue to offer both traditional and international creative food; we will strive to ensure that the food and drink products we serve are of excellent quality, and we hope to provide a service that will make everyone feel special and welcome.
