The Crown Inn is the only public house remaining in Hallow today.  It is a very old pub and has a rich and interesting history.  To read the research undertaken during 2015, please click here.



Unfortunately, in March 2015 the Royal Oak was demolished to make way for housing, but luckily we have been able to find out about its long and interesting history.  Some of this may be found here



In the 18th and 19th Centuries, there were inns at the northern end of Hallow Green which now no longer exist.  The main pub was the Plough and this may be seen in the picture above.  The Plough traded until the 1880s when it became a coffee tavern.  To find out more about it and the other lost inns, please click here
