Award-Winning Restaurant & Pub in The Cotswolds

Welcome to The Crown, a pub with community spirit nestled at the heart of the village of Ampney Brook, near Cirencester, in the beautiful Cotswolds.

Food and drink is our pride and joy. Our seasonal, farm-to-table menus are inspired by our idyllic Cotswolds surroundings, focusing on top quality meats, fish and vegetables sourced as locally as possible.

At the centre of the action is our open copper kitchen, where our chefs cook up hearty dishes such as ribeyes on a Robata Grill, as well as jazzed up classics like prawn cocktails and crème brulées. Sit up at the bar to watch our cocktail shakers mix classic and bespoke recipes, or take advantage of the enomatic machine and get stuck into our fine wines by the glass.

Whether you’re after a casual weekday lunch, a drink by the babbling brook, dinner in one of our riverside dining rooms or a party in one of our private dining rooms, our beautifully renovated 16th-century inn provides the perfect setting.
