About The Crown & Thistle
The Crown & Thistle is a 400-year-old grade II listed coaching inn located in Abingdon, within easy reach of Didcot, Wantage, Wallingford & Oxford.
With a history dating back to 1605, The Crown & Thistle on Bridge Street re-opened its doors in 2013, following a £1.8m restoration. This Grade II listed coaching inn comprises three individual buildings clustered around a cobbled courtyard, framed by 200-year-old wisteria. Having been sympathetically designed, many of the buildings’ original features, such as timber beams, open brickwork, and window frames that aren’t square, remain throughout the restaurant, extensive bar area, elegant function rooms, and 18 boutique-style bedrooms.
With 18 luxury en-suite bedrooms and a stunning converted function room, which is available for private hire, from meetings and conferences to events and weddings. Our newly awarded wedding license means you and your guests can enjoy both the ceremony and celebrations in beautiful, historic surroundings.
With packages to suit a variety of budgets and tastes, this is the perfect location for wedding celebrations!
