The Crown Inn
Wedding Reception venue in Oxfordshire, Nestling in the heart of the Stonor Valley, the Crown Inn at Pishill offers the perfect setting for your wedding celebrations. This picturesque 15th century coaching inn is conveniently located just six miles from Henley-on-Thames and seven miles from J6 of the M40.
Our stunning 400 year old thatched timber-framed barn is fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and provides a charming and intimate setting for your special day.
Nothing was too much trouble for Lucas the owner who bent over backwoods to help us.
It stands in the most beautiful Stonor valley and consists of the pub - which was useful for the initial drinks for the guests, the cottage - for the bride to stay overnight and for tired guests to rest during the day and the magnificent old barn - for the ceremony, meal and evening entertainment.
There is plenty of safe parking for guests and a paddock behind the pub (lined with marquees) which served perfectly for photographs, drinks, music and general mixing of the guests. All in all, we could not have wished for a better site for this happy day.
The food was absolutely excellent - tasty, piping hot and just right to put the guests in a good mood for the speeches and the evening's dancing. We chose the simple 'sausage & mash' which was widely appreciated by the hungry guests. It was delightfully served by Lucas and his team. In fact, throughout the day, the staff were helpful, polite and friendly. The dessert was the trio of mini-desserts, of which the crème brûlée was outstanding.
In the evening, the barn was arranged for - naturally - a barn dance! The band were located on the stage and after initial shyness, everyone wanted to join in. I would recommend this to anyone for a good wedding night bash. After this, the barn became a disco until closing time just before midnight when coaches picked up the guests.
We cannot thank the staff and management of the Crown enough for making this a very special day for all concerned.
