If you are looking for fresh local home cooked food and a selection of local beers then please visit The Crown in Catton. From the huge bi folding glass doors, the view over the Allen Valley is absolutely stunning, especially on a sunny day. Andy, the owner, is one of the most friendliest Landlords you could ever meet. My partner... More

My wife and I visited the Crown and were met by the hospitable owner Andy. Very informative on what's happening in the area and what to see. We eat there two nights running and found the food to be very good. Andy did highlight the food would take a while to cook because it is cooked fresh. Well worth the... More

We visited the crown, on a Friday night as we were staying in a local lodge. I really wasn't expecting this level of food and more so this level of service from a local pub. We had 3 small children with us, the youngest being 12 weeks and from the moment we entered we were made to feel so welcome.... More

Absolutely brilliant eaterie, very friendly and dog friendly. Lovely open fire and given a very warm welcome. Lovely choices of food both for adults and children alike. Portions were more than filling and presented well. My daughter has dined here regularly before but it was our first time and we will certainly be back..even in the winter months.

Super food, well cooked and presented and good value. Order taken by someone au fait with the ingredients (one of the party needed gluten free) and service was with a smile! Surprised to find Tribute so far north, might have preferred something a bit darker and more local but if that's all I can find to pick at then it's... More

The Crown in catton is a small friendly village pub set within the North Pennines area of outstanding natural beauty. The Crown doesn't claim to be something its not. The community and the people that visit us want a pub, thats not to say we don't do scrumptious food, we try our best! Outstanding views of the Allen valley through the panoramic windows..... And a roaring fire for those cooler nights!
