Crow Inn – now open!

The Crow Inn finally opened on Thursday 6th June after many months of renovations, refurbishment and fitting out of the premises as a craft beer pub downstairs and en-suite hotel rooms upstairs. There is also a sun trap beer patio at the rear.

There are 5 real ales on handpump, including two regular beers from Abbeydale (Daily Bread – a traditional brown, malty bitter – and Heathen, a gluten free pale ale) with the rest being regularly changing guest beers. On the opening night the guests were from Red Willow, Beatnikz Republic and Ridgeside. There is also a very interesting line up of craft beers on keg which on opening night included an 11.9% oreo imperial stout all the way from Oklahoma! For the traditional cider drinker there is also a range of 3 or 4 bag in box ciders available.

The team opening the Crow have a fine pedigree – Chris and Kate already operate the Rutland Arms on Brown Street in the City Centre, Wendy is a successful business woman who was also a previous landlady of the Harlequin and the manager employed at the Crow, Adam, has moved up there from Shakespeares.

You can find the Crow Inn on Scotland Street, just off West Bar. Bus 31 stops outside.
