Owner Steve and the team welcomes you to The Crown Inn at Groombridge
As we are in Kent, we have to remain closed for now

We will have a new Winter Menu, new Wine List,
the Christmas Menu, including for the first time Christmas Day and Boxing Day
 and our Takeaway Service will restart

Due to the nature of the old building, there are some restrictions we need to start with, but hope to relax as things improve:

  • You are required to either check-in with the NHS Covid-19 App or you will need to register your name and contact number

  • Inside tables will be prioritised for diners but drinkers are welcome outside, and inside if there is availability.

  • Please call to reserve your table and, if possible, order and pay over the phone to minimise contact with staff.  Our menus are on this website.

  • It may be possible for us to seat you without a booking, but if we cannot you will not be able to wait inside for a table as it is impossible for us to maintain the 1+metre rule inside

  • The pub will operate on a one-way system: enter through the front door where a brief digital temperature check and hand sanitizer will be available; exit through the rear door

  • Food and drink will only be delivered to you at your table

  • The toilets are small so only one person can be in either at any one time

If you cannot get a table, we are able to offer almost our entire menu for takeaway.

I look forward to welcoming you back to The Crown in the very near future.

Our family run free house is one of the oldest pubs in the South of England and is in an excellent position for exploring with lovely walks close by in Ashurst Park, Stone Cross, Burrswood, Withyham and The Ashdown Forest. There are links to information for Cycling, Rock Climbing, Golf, Horse Riding and Fishing in the area. Groombridge Place is only across the road where weekend events take place, lovely gardens to walk through and a children's Enchanted Forest. Come and try our traditional cuisine in the cosy beamed restaurant with log fires to keep you warm. We have a set menu and a daily specials board that caters for all tastes.

Our Sunday roast is a mouth watering experience!! Family parties can be catered for and any special events - please call early to book. Bed and breakfast is available. We have beautiful cosy rooms with all the characters of the 16th Century. Please feel free to call us to ask any queries.

Well behaved Dogs
are welcome in the
bar and snug

Do you enjoy fishing?

The Dorset Arms Angling Club is actually based out of The Crown Inn, as the lakes are in Burrswood next to us.
