About the crown

We’re a pub in the beautiful village of Hartest. We’re part of the independently owned Gusto Pronto family and are passionate about great food, drinks and hospitality.

Sup a Brewshed pint, drink a great coffee, enjoy a meal and a glass or two of wine. Catch up with friends, bring the family, do some business, call in on your own. Sit at the bar, take a pew by the fire, grab a table in the restaurant or in our garden. We are what you want us to be.

We focus on quality, seasonal produce sourced locally where possible. Our small menu changes fortnightly so that our team can focus on creating great quality, interesting dishes from scratch. We can do half portions of most of our dishes for children.

We brew our own beer at our craft brewery, Brewshed, just down the road. We’re obsessed with finding wines we love that we can list at great value to you. If coffee’s your thing, we work with Crude Drinks who roast our coffee in Bury St Edmunds.

Payment is by card or contactless payment only.

We’re open from noon Tuesday to Sunday.

We have an idyllic garden with a play area and plenty of room for everyone. In the warmer months, you’ll also find an outdoor pizzeria and garden bar.

We also have baby changing facilities, highchairs, activity sheets and crayons.

Well behaved dogs on a lead are welcome in the garden, bar or beamed dining room.
