The Crown Inn is now a country hotel and for many years was called the Crown of Crucis. The 16th century building has been much enlarged and the prestigious hotel now even offers conference facilities for up to 90 delegates. The Ampney brook, a tributary of the River Thames, passes through the grounds of the hotel and forms a delightful riverside garden.

The hotel has recently been refurbished and now trades as the Crown at Ampney Brook.
