Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Ye Olde Crown

Historic inn, with a sign spanning the High Street, and it is still provides accommodation. It has been remodelled / refurbished at some stage(s), but the semi-traditional interior initially appears to be the business. However, the four clips on the five handpumps proved to be a total illusion, with the reversed clip on the other being the only one that might actually relate to draught beer if you are luckier than me (with the others being bottled versions). Despite the usual "there isn't enough call for it nonsense", all the empty bottles on the counter and uncleared tables were from the owning Marston's range (Razor Back, Boon Doggle, Forty Niner, Old Empire IPA), so it appears to be "we can't be bothered" to me... What a shame!

Lots going for it, from a historical perspective. C14th building. Able to trace back landlords to the 1500s. A tunnel used by smugglers between the pub and the church (was the Vicar in on it?). Ticked all the boxes for what I look for in a pub.

Then there is today's business. One bar man, who was also the waiter, trying to keep on top of everything. He was summonsed to deliver meals by a doorbell.

Beerwise - just one real ale - Ringwood fortyniner - which was in fine condition.

Preferred the Old Eden down the road.

Malden man left this review about Ye Old Crown

Dating in part from the 14th Century, the exterior is attractive with white slatted walls and black beams, a low wonky beamed ceiling inside with more timber framing on view, leaded windows. The bar area is boarded, carpeted to the side where there is a huge inglenook fireplace which now runs through to the side room where a dresser replaces the hearth. Shelves contain pewter tankards and pottery, horse brasses are on display. Stairs lead up to an open galleried floor with a vaulted ceiling. Rooms are available with the reception towards the rear of the pub.
Four handpumps, Ringwood 49er (£3.60), Wychwood Hobgoblin + Hb Gold, one reversed. Various activities advertised suggesting a community use. it was ok, nothing more.
