Gin of the Month

Hawthorn’s Gin

Hawthorn’s Gin is still produced to a recipe formulated by the founders’s Grandfather, a Commander in the Royal Navy during the Second World War. Decorated many times for his bravery, he used to distil his own gin and take it to sea to boost morale.

Hawthorn’s Gin is zesty and bright, with spice and coriander up front, as well as a touch of pepper in the middle, which then makes way for a fresh, yet dry leafy juniper finish.  Served Over ice with tonic and slice of orange this is a fabulous gin for February in The Crown Inn.

Moules & Frites in February

Our wonderfully popular Moules & Frites offer including a stunning white burgundy is running throughout the entire month of February.  What a deliciously decadent treat for lunch or a sumptuous supper to satisfy your yearnings for the summer sea breeze.

Beer of the Month

Greyhound Brewery, Pulborough. Amber Eyes Golden Ale 4.2%

A rich and well balanced golden amber ale with complex floral aromas, rounded light biscuit malt flavours and a well mannered bitter finish.

The name for this beer is directly linked to the name of the brewery. For many years Nick has had a lovely old wooden walking stick handle in the shape of a greyhound head. He used to keep it in the glove box of the AC Greyhound car. Elongated and well-worn it is smooth and beautiful to handle – and has amber eyes.  Nick and Sarah Allen live and work from their adapted former Southern Water workshops in West Sussex.
