Brainy Pool left this review about The Crown

this is a pretty crap bistro bar, let alone pub, and a real disappointment. Popular with the tedious gin sippers and seemingly no locals at all. It has been totally modernised and lacks any of the character that typifies the best Dales pubs. Just dull and expensive - you have been warned

The beers were all Theakstons when I was here: Old Peculier, Best Bitter, XB and Lightfoot, spread between two banks of hand pumps, four in the front room and three around the corner. It was fairly lively at the time of my late Sunday afternoon visit, which I imagine must be a busy day for all the pubs here. I went for the OP, although my 10 mile cycle ride from Ribblehead hardly justified my selection in terms of replenishment of energy expended. By way of punishment for my audacity, this was not by any means the best half of this fine beer that I've sampled this year. Not bad enough to put me off coming back next year, mind.

Called in on the 5th of May had 2 very good pints of Timmy Taylor's landlord the pub was busy for food at dinner time it was a very hot day and a lot of visitors in the area that had been round the Cheese factory which is also worth a visit.
The food looked good and the pub was clean so what more do you want will call back when in the area

I visited the Crown on the weekend of 13/14th Feb 2010. I stayed for 2 nights, the room was en-suite and very clean and comfortable with a modern decor. The food was of a very good quality, with a special valentine menu of duck, steaks and a pot of mussels to share which was excellent. In the corner of the small bar was a large wide screen TV which had apparently been reacently installed ready for the six nations rugby. There was a very freindly atmospher during the rugby matches and at half time free snacks were served which was a very nice touch. The same people seemed to make their way to the crown for both days of rugby, this was no doubt due to the freindly atmosphere and of course half time snacks.

Situated in the heart of picturesque Hawes, the Crown was the only Theakston tied pub we visited on our week of travels and it did at least offer an opportunity to try the Black Bull and XB ales that were available alongside the ubiquitous Best and occasional Old Peculiar that we seemed to encounter elsewhere. The quality was decent enough but a bit pricey compared to other pubs we visited in the area.

The 2 bar interior is inviting enough and quite spacious. The lounge bar has fires at each end, high back settles and a few antique firearms among the nick nacks. The rear (main?) bar was slightly more basic but pleasing on the eye with a selection of antiques, old tools and kitchen implemnents plus one wall in homage to everything Theakston; mirrors, newspaper cuttings, history snippets and a guide to Theakston's home town of Masham (also worth a visit).

Traditional pub games in evidence included darts and shove ha'penny and a notice outside mentioned bar billiards however it has either gone or there is another room somewhere that I didn't notice. There was also a small but basic TV in one corner. To the rear is a beer garden, apparently with good views of the surrounding hills, but since it was dark and wet I didn't get a chance to reap the benefits.

It was fairly quiet on my visit apart from a pocket of excessively loud townsfolk airing a local grievance that became quite intrusive. The barman wasn't exactly Mr Personality either but of the 4 pubs in town, the Crown would probably be my pick if I only ahd time to do one.
