The Lord Combermere Audlem, is a family run pub and has a regular entry into the Good Beer Guide. It’s situated at the intersection of Audlem’s two main roads, one of which was the Market Drayton to Nantwich turnpike road and is considered to be the oldest part of the village.
The pub predates both the Shropshire Union Canal and the Nantwich to Market Drayton Railway. The pub’s name relates to Stapleton Cotton, the first Viscount Combermere.
From a google search this evening, I can find that in 1850 this pub was owned by a John Dutton and the landlord was John Prince. Do you know of any other historical insights to include here? If so, I would love to hear from you.
The Crown is a grade 2 listed building, built in the late 18th or early 19th Century.
Adjacent to the Crown, this more recent development was built on the site of a former stables and coach house.
