Crown and Treaty, Uxbridge, Middlesex ( #August2016PubPerDay number 46)   2 comments

What passes for a heat wave here continued with temperatures in the mid-thirties Celsius and even a couple of thunderstorms.  I was about halfway through the day’s run to Denham when the Crown and Treaty beckoned with a shady porch and cool pint of Doom Bar.

The house looks a lot bigger from without than within and, with only 4 people standing around, shooting the shit, it seemed a lot bigger inside than it actually is.  I think it is the location: there isn’t much parking and it is a nightmare to get to as a pedestrian.

Worthy of a stop in, though.  The wood paneling inside was originally removed from the pub to decorate some offices in the Empire State Building then returned as a Coronation gift in 1953.  The pub was also used in a failed attempt to reconcile Charles I and Parliament in 1645 (hence the name).

Of less historic importance, this is the 46th of the August 2016 Pub Per Day Challenge entries.
