I was really happy to see that the Crown offered a real veggie Sunday dinner - including vegetarian gravy! Lovely, friendly place and nice food. Will be back to sample the week day menu!

The Crown in catton is a small friendly village pub set within the North Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty. The Crown doesn't claim to be something its not. The community and the people that visit us want a pub, thats not to say we don't do scrumptious food, we try our best! Outstanding views of the Allen valley through the panoramic windows..... And a roaring fire for those cooler nights!
