Food & drink

Here at The Crown & Thistle we pride ourselves on using the very best fresh, local produce &
ingredients. From our Locally Brewed Ales & Spirits to our Greengrocer, Local Butchers, Fishmonger
& even our Local Honey Supplier!

Our meat comes from Local Farms in Wigton & Walby, with our Beef travelling no more than 35 miles
from Field to Fork. Here in our Kitchen Garden we grow our own Garden Herbs, Courgettes, Salad
Leaves & Tomatoes & our Fish is Delivered to us several times a week from The Fish Cellar in
Devonshire Arcade in Penrith where we can guarantee High Quality Fresh Produce. We try to make as
much as possible here onsite including Freshly Baked Bread & Homemade Desserts.
