The Crown has welcomed guests through its doors since the 1800s, when it was kept by Peter Mee, and was part of the Mainwaring family estate.
The Worth family took on the pub in 1891, giving it its name and establishing it as a focal part of 19th century life in Goostrey. Around this time, Miss Margaret Worth, the daughter of the landlord, financed the popular ‘Rose Festival’ along with her friend Miss Emily Cumberbirch, who between them ended with a total profit of two old pence. Taking place on the last Saturday in June, it is still a major event in the village calendar today and now raises enough money to donate a significant amount to a number of local charities.
The Crown continued to thrive in the twentieth century, especially in the final decade when the popular Gerry Bridgwood and his wife Cynthia took over the helm.
Gerry started his career as a professional footballer for Stoke City, making his debut in 1961. They lived here with their eldest son Mark and younger son Scot until March 2012, when Gerry and Cynthia decided to retire from the pub trade.
