The Crown at Aston End is a privately owned, newly refurbished pub located in the peaceful country hamlet of Aston End off Gresley Way in Stevenage just minutes from the surrounding villages of Aston, Walkern, Benington and Watton. You can be assured of a warm welcome for the whole family when you pop in and see us. Relax in comfy armchairs in the bar area or enjoy a pint of locally brewed real ale or a glass of one of our expertly chosen wines.
We're quickly building a reputation for serving some of the best, freshly prepared food in the area and we are very pleased to welcome head chef Oliver Blackman to our experienced kitchen team. Prior to joining us Ollie was head chef at The Rusty Gun just outside Hitchin and Sous Chef at The Wellington at Old Welwyn so if you choose to eat with us we guarantee you'll be impressed!

On Saturday food is served from 12 - 9pm and on Sunday's Lunch is served from 12 - 6pm (Roasts finish at 4pm) followed by a general knowledge quiz at 7:30pm.

Lots of you are contacting us about 'Christmas Day'. As per our tradition in previous years we'll be open 11:30am - 3pm for drinks only then we'll be sending all our team home to spend some well earned time off with their children, family and loved ones. Christmas Day is a special one for our family pub in the country - we might only be open for a couple of hours but, the mulled wine will be bubbling, the fire will be roaring and the pub will fill to the brim with familiar faces from near and far so we invite you to pop out for an hour or so on Christmas day with all the family and join us for a jolly lovely time!
With a large car park to the rear, a beautiful, tranquil fully fenced country garden backing onto horse fields (seating for over 200 people), extensive children's play area and courtyard patio seating for 50 people The Crown is the perfect location for all the family. We look welcoming you to our pub soon - View our opening times
