Quinno _ left this review about The Crown & Thistle Hotel

Ancient (C.17 coaching inn) back-of-the-cobbled-courtyard pub. Quite large and atmospheric inside, with two bars. Knocked-through and modernised (£1.8 million in 2013, apparently!) with some character injected to replace what was. There are three distinct areas; a central bar, a room with exposed stone walls and dog legged red walled room with pictures on the walls. Three pumps, all on; Fullers Swing Low, Fullers London Pride and Loose Cannon Singing in the Grain – the latter of which was in pretty good nick. I quite liked it here, worth a visit. Look out for the cannon in the courtyard.

Graham Smith left this review about The Stocks Bar (Crown & Thistle)

A lively bar situated at the back of the courtyard in this 2 star hotel. Attracts a young local clientele and shows most TV football matches. Has a pool table and usual quiz and fruit machines. Occasional live music. Has eight handpumps with usually five or six in operation. Although a free house normally has beers from the Marstons and Wychwood ranges with a couple of unusual guests as well. Offers 20p a pint discount and 25% off bar meals for CAMRA members. Can get a little boisterous on friday and saturday evenings.
