Welcome to The Crown and Thistle

Traditional English Pub and Restaurant

A traditional English Pub / Restaurant set in the outskirts of Darwen countryside. The Crown & Thistle is steeped in history dating back to 1742. It is said the legendary Scottish hero Bonnie Prince Charlie stayed at the inn during his adventures up and down the country.

We have gone to great lengths to retain this historical ambiance along with retaining and renovating original features to create the perfect rustic setting.

We welcome you to come and sample our beef and ale pie, roast beef with all the trimmings or simply come for a drink or two in tranquil surroundings.
At The Crown & Thistle we pride ourselves on our hospitality and customer service.

We never compromise on quality from our food to our beers and wines, and all ingredients are fresh. If you are looking for a sociable dining experience set in the delightful Darwen countryside, offering a fine selection of food and drinks you've come to the right place.

The Crown & Thistle is a truly unique dining experience.

Function room for hire,
great rates and service.
