Welcome to the
Residing in the picturesque village of Penn, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Chiltern Hills, is the stunning Grade II listed 16th century pub restaurant, The Crown. One of two alehouses recorded in Penn in 1577, the Crown takes visitors back to a time when life moved at a slower pace. With its breathtaking views over the Buckinghamshire countryside, this tranquil venue invites the visitor to take it easy for an afternoon or evening, whether indoors in front of the real log fires or outdoors in the pub’s beer garden, which rolls down the hillside. Whatever the season, there’s no lovelier or more idyllic place to savour a drink, a sumptuous Sunday lunch, a tasty seasonal special or a delectable dessert. A Grade II listed building, The Crown is thought to be one of two alehouses recorded in Penn in 1577 - the oldest part of the building being 16th century and built of red and grey brick with a tiled roof cover, with late 18th and 20th century additions. Situated at the edge of the village, with glorious views overlooking the Chiltern Hills, The Crown was once a five bedroomed inn hosting suppers for the workers from Penn House Estate and where large shooting parties were accommodated. A thriving hostelry, The Crown was owned by Penn Estate with the Daurvill family as landlords for over a century, dating from 1750. The Garlands were then landlords from 1864 until 1929 when the inn was sold on. During World War II the pub was the base for the local Home Guard. Penn itself is the sort of picturesque small village that springs to mind when you recall England’s ‘green and pleasant land’ with its extensively wooded hills and valleys criss-crossed by lanes and footpaths.
