Nestled in the heart of Faringdon, The Old Crown Coaching Inn is a living testament to centuries of history. This 16th-century inn, once a refuge for Royalist officers during the English Civil War, welcomed not only those loyal to the crown but also the renowned Oliver Cromwell himself. As if that weren't enough, the inn's historical tapestry goes even further, with the notorious Hanging Judge Jeffreys using its hallowed halls as one of his courtrooms.


Today, The Old Crown Coaching Inn has been lovingly restored, merging its rich heritage with innovative hospitality. With a 2AA rosette restaurant serving fine-dining cuisine, it offers a truly unique experience. Step back in time, dine in elegance, and immerse yourself in the captivating history that this inn holds.
