The Crown Inn at Horsted Keynes is a historic building dating back to the 16th Century. It has now been serving locals and travellers for over 250 years. In July 2003, lightning struck a power line to the building which resulted in very serious damage and large parts of the building were destroyed. Fortunately the oldest parts were untouched and after being closed for over 5 years it was finally reopened in 2009.We are pleased to say that in March 2013 another new era has taken place.Mark Raffan, former chef proprietor of the prestigious “Gravetye Manor” comes to Horsted Keynes via his successful regeneration of the Red Lion at Chelwood Gate. He and his brigade of talented young chefs bring elegant yet relaxed fine dining to the welcoming atmosphere of The Crown.With comforting real fires in winter, and a glorious patio garden overlooking the village cricket green in summer, the Crown offers an idyllic setting in which to enjoy quality food based on locally sourced seasonal ingredients prepared by the former holder of a coveted Michelin star.Please take a look around our website to see what The Crown Inn has to offer.
