Whether visiting the Crown & Thistle for business or for pleasure, the premium quality finish of the rooms guarantees a warm and comfortable stay.

The Crown & Thistle is reputed to have been built in 1605 and has had a long and distinguished history, deriving its name from the uniting of the English and Scottish Crowns under King James VI of Scotland and I of England.

The inn has evolved in a piecemeal fashion over the centuries, possibly incorporating original or re-used material from service buildings relating to Abingdon Abbey dating back to the 7th Century. The inn was altered and extended in the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries.

A notable feature of the Crown & Thistle is its cobbled courtyard which showcases a fine Wisteria growing beside the stocks and cannon, and is believed to have been planted over 200 years ago when the first coaches arrived.
