The tri-gabled Cotswold stone Crown Inn dates back to 1693. It was originally called the Angel.

Tetbury Woolsack Races.

The Crown Inn was the starting point of the historic Woolsack Races held at Whitsuntide every year when participants carry 60lb or 30lb wool sacks on their backs downhill from the Crown Inn to the Royal Oak – a distance of 225 metres. The return journey up the hill is considerably more demanding!

The Crown was closed for several years facing an uncertain future. This was the state of the pub in 2012.

The Crown has now permanently closed.
