The Crown at Catton had been closed for a good few years until the Allendale Brewery took it on.
Its a real old country pub which serves meals and of course, Allendale Brewerys good real ales.
When we called, the excellent Curlews Return was on, Golden Plover, Swift, Entrepreneur, and Allendales own Adder Lager.
After a delicious Curlews Return, off we went, to a jig from the Crown's fiddler outside, to continue the quest.
