The Crown

Local Pub / Restaurant

The Crown at Wells & Anton's Bistro is a 15th century, Grade II listed coaching inn. It is in the heart of the historic City of Wells, Somerset; a stone’s throw from Wells Cathedral and The Bishop’s Palace.

The Crown is believed to have been built around 1450, originally as houses, commissioned by the then Bishop Beckynton. Later on The Penn Bar was divided into two buildings providing a bar for The Crown coaching inn and a separate inn called The Royal Oak.
