Here at The Little Crown Inn we pride ourselves on making your visit as enjoyable as possible, whether you’re just popping in for a quick bite to eat, or staying for a 4 course meal and a relaxing night in one of our 5 en suite guest rooms. . Located in the heart of the valleys and situated next to the cycle track, we are ideally situated for cyclists and ramblers, and are able to cater for large groups as well as small parties. The pub boasts a large bar area, with a restaurant and function room, and is equipped with a pool table and dart board. We’ve themed the corridor leading to the new restrooms on a mine shaft, equipped with real miners’ lamps and gas masks! It’s definitely worth a look!
