150-year-old pub

Customers can sit by the roaring fire in the bar area, and the menu is centred around fresh food which the team of chefs prepare with skill and flair – although this doesn’t mean a small portion or overinflated prices.



All of our ingredients are fresh – we only use the freezer for ice cream and the microwave is hardly ever in use. Our chefs smoke our salmon over wood chips in the kitchen, All our sauces are made in house and out black pudding is made from scratch.

The Bar

Wide selection of drinks including our first-class gin selection. We’ve invested in a high-tech tonic machine which is one of the only models of its kind in the north west!”

Christmas Menu

The Christmas 2022 will be launched soon. You can already book your table for Xmas 2022. Please call the pub for more details.

History of The Crown

When the pub closed four years ago, there was a local outcry and a campaign began to “Save the Crown”. The Crown at Worthington has a rich history and heritage is important to the new owners. There are records on the pub from as far back as the 1860s, when Henry Atherton ran the “Crown Inn” and was actually turned down for an alcohol licence! He persevered, got his licence and ran the pub until the 1890s.

Over recent years, the pub proved popular with locals with a huge Yorkshire puddings being hailed by customers and the friendly welcoming from there staff as two of the great draws. In 2009 the Crown at Worthington won the CAMRA award for Regional Pub of the Year. Following its 2016 closure and the subsequent £250,000 refurbishment this year, Andrew and Nic are delighted to be serving customers at the Crown at Worthington, just as Henry Atherton did all those years ago.

Covid-safe at the Crown

New owners Andrew and Nicola McKenna worked tirelessly during 2020 to open for the July 4th post-lockdown opening, and despite the difficult climate for hospitality this year, have welcomed thousands of customers through the door since then.

Making sure everybody is Covid-safe has been their focus recently, with hand sanitiser and a track-and-trace system being set up at the door. Masks are worn by staff and customers, apart from when they are seated at tables. Booking is crucial but not mandatory for the pub to manage social distancing and the staff are proud of the safe environment they have created.

Socially-distanced live music and comedy shows have proved popular, with family events being planned for 2021.
