    Pig and Scarf, an environmental smallholding rearing Tamworth pigs, free range chickens and other seasonal fowl, was established 18 months ago in the nearby village of Tansor just four miles from the Crown Inn.

    The company has a breeding herd of rare breed, outdoor bred, pedigree Tamworth pigs, which are fed a GM free, cereal based diet with strict control on protein, supplemented with fruit, vegetables and tummy tickles.

    As well as pigs the company has Label Rouge certified, free range Ross chickens; ex-battery chickens now living and enjoying the free range life supplying fresh eggs. This is complimented by other seasonal fowl.

    Pig and Scarf focus on making the smallholding as environmental as possible; all pig arks and chicken houses are made from recycled materials using pallets helping to reduce their carbon footprint.

  • Kings Cliffe Brewery

    Kings Cliffe Brewery

    King’s Cliffe Brewery, known as KCB, is a five barrel microbrewery producing 1,400 delicious pints with every brew. After casking, the beer is naturally conditioned for at least two weeks. Only then is the beer allowed to leave the brewery and be enjoyed.

    The brewery currently brews three permanent beers (5c, No.10 and 66°) and the occasional seasonal beers, all of which are available in bottles, mini-casks, pins and firkins.

    Based just six miles from The Crown Inn, in the village of Kings Cliffe, this is the brewery where we brew our very own Crown Inn Bitter.
