Food & Drink

We are new here at The Old Crown Coaching Inn

Samuel Squires, our award winning Head Chef at The Old Crown Coaching Inn, has devised a menu to deliciously compliment the beautiful Ballroom, our 80 seater restaurant. Here you can enjoy terrific food carefully crafted with an innovative twist on fine dining.

Our Wine Bar at the heart of The Crown offers a range of fine wines & cocktails. The Wine Bar opens up into the original cobbled courtyard.  

Finally, our main bar offers a more relaxed experience where you can enjoy a delicious meal off our pub menu or sip on a delicious local ale.

Sam has worked in many top restaurants during his career, including the 5-star Grove Hotel in Watford, The Ritz in London, and the 3 Michelin-starred private restaurant, Remy. Until recently, Sam was head chef at Hibiscus, Northampton, the AA rosette-awarded restaurant.


Whilst at Hibiscus, Sam was named 'Chef of the Year' at the Weetabix Food & Drinks Awards.  This latest recognition of ‘Chef of the Year’ firmly establishes him as a customer and critic favourite in the well-regarded food and drink scene.

The Old Crown Coaching Inn kitchen has a 5* food & hygiene rating to compliment the 5* food and service we offer.
