  • Built in 1605, the Crown and Thistle is a charming, curved, white building of three storeys located near the River Thames and the abbey. The inn name is a reference to the uniting of England and Scotland when James VI of Scotland became James I of England in 1603. The thistle as the emblem of Scotland dates to the eighth century. The Cheney family were among the first proprietors in 1624. An old coaching inn with a cobbled yard, the Crown and Thistle is a listed building. For years, there have been accounts that the inn exhibits ghostly manifestations including a ghostly coach and horse which is both seen and heard! Witnesses recount the clatter of the coach across the old stable yard and the pounding of horses’ hooves.
