Lovely wood panelled bar that services the Crown Hotel, a large imposing white building near the market square. The bar is reached via a small passageway between buildings. We visited on a February afternoon and found it very snug. Friendly staff and plenty of locals, plus a roaring fire. Reasonable beer choice as well; Adnams Broadside, Abbot and Southwold IPA, along with Newby Wyke Orsino, a crisp blonde beer, very pale in colour, brewed in Grantham. I had 3 pints of the Orsino which was an easy drinking pint with a zesty taste.

Went here after reading the positive reviews here but seem to have caught it on a bad day. I liked the comfortable, timbered bar but the locals seemed a grim bunch and I swiftly sank my - admittedly fine - pint of Adnams Broadside and left.

Still serves a reasonable pint. Though busy was not as noisy as on my last visit - it seems like it has it's moments.

This is a great, unpretentious town centre pub. Always an interesting selection of ales, in good condition, and served by quietly efficient and friendly bar staff. Open fires, pine panelling and pictures of the bomber squadron based in Downham during the war add atmosphere - although just occasionally some of the locals get a bit fractious (we were once entertained by a great ongoing punch-up amongst a funeral party!). If you want food, it's giant portions quickly and efficiently served - some of the best Ham and Eggs in the region. I've visited often - never been disappointed.

Nice bar area with real fire. Had a good pint of Abbott Ale and the other handpulls also looked good. The real fire really makes the place feel cosy. Didnt eat but the food that we saw come out looked good. Worth a visit.
