The Old Crown - Traditional Pub - Hesket Newmarket...

CAMRA SOLWAY BRANCH PUB OF THE SEASON SPRING 2010

The Old Crown is a traditional Lake District real ale pub and all customers will receive a warm Cumbrian welcome. We are happy to receive well-behaved children and dogs also.

The pub nestles in the beautiful fellside village of Hesket Newmarket and has done for generations. It is unique in that it is owned by a co-operative, made up of villagers, other locals and a cross section of real ale lovers from across the globe.

The Co-operative is dedicated to maintaining the essential character of the pub and the new tenants - Stephen & Beverley - are working hard to preserve the old pub's reputation for a warm welcome, good food and real ale.

The Old Crown serves the very best real ales, all brewed by the Hesket Newmarket Brewery which stands at the rear of the pub, excellent bar meals, freshly made with locally sourced produce.

Our range of real ales includes:

Doris' 90th Birthday Ale
A.B.V. c4.3%.
A glorious, full flavoured, fruity premium beer. Originally brewed in 1989 to celebrate the 90th birthday of Liz's mother.

Catbells Pale Ale
A.B.V. c5.0%.
Beware - this refreshing, easy to drink pale ale could readily catch you out.

Skiddaw Special Bitter
A.B.V. c3.7%.
A 'spritzy' refreshing session beer with a well balanced full flavoured palate.

Helvellyn Gold
A.B.V. c4.0%.
Straw coloured, with a hoppy aroma and a pleasant bitterness.

Old Carrock Ale
A.B.V. c6.0%.
A dark red, delicious strong ale, beguilingly smooth and definitely dangerous.

Scafell Blonde
A.B.V. c4.3%
Straw coloured bitter, substantially hopped with traditional Goldings and Challenger hops, moderated by the use of malted oats alongside Maris Otter pale ale malt to give an exceptionally smooth finish

Great Cockup Porter
A.B.V. c3.0%.
Nearly black, with a dark malty flavour and a smooth bitterness.

We also have special 'seasonal ales' e.g. Autumn Chestnut (A.B.V. 4.7%), and a Strong Spicy Doris Xmas Pudding ale (A.B.V. 5.8%).
