Eating Out


The Crown Inn in Hesket Newmarket, Cumbria, is not just a pub; it's a romantic haven wrapped in the charm of community spirit. The village itself is a bit like stepping back in time and that’s just how the locals like it. As Britain's inaugural registered cooperatively owned pub, it stands as a testament to the 150 individuals who rescued this British icon many years ago, from the looming threat of closure. Operated by the dynamic duo, Helen and Simon, the pub emanates a warmth that extends from every corner, creating an intimate atmosphere perfect for a romantic evening. Amidst the historical walls, the Crown Inn exudes a unique coziness that makes it an ideal setting for a romantic meal. The love and dedication poured into preserving this establishment make it more than a pub, it's a love story, inviting visitors to share in the romance of Cumbria's enchanting landscape.
