Inscription.
The Crown Inn was already nearly three centuries old when it acquired its name in 1625. The Crown was one of the first coaching houses in Oxford, which was a great coaching centre until the coming of the railway in 1835. The present building is where the stables once stood with the much larger inn being on the other side of the passage.
Famous people are known to have stayed at the inn, including Shakespeare who was a friend of the vintner John Davenent.
