In 1891 the premises is listed in the Gloucestershire licensing book as having no name.
The Crown Inn stood on the corner of Gloucester Street (number 18 with the adjacent cottage) and Mill Lane, which is almost opposite the parish church.
The Crown closed at 10pm in 1903 – hardly good business sense as the other pubs in Winchcombe closed at 11pm. However, are the licensing records incorrect? I can remember the Bell Inn at Winchcombe closing earlier than pubs in Bishops Cleeve and Cheltenham. This was in the late 1970’s. It seems more likely that both the Crown Inn and all the other pubs in Winchcombe had to close at 10pm. Can anyone confirm this?
