Essex Life Food and Drink Awards

Highly CommendedOld Crown Messing, the Team

Penny Campbell and her team at The Old Crown won the award for Community Pub of the Year in the Essex Life Fine Food & Drink Award competition for two years running in 2013 and 2014.

In 2015 they were awarded Highly Commended. Penny says: "We were all so pleased to be nominated for this award for the third year in a row. The time has flown by and has been so much fun, so it's fantastic to know that our customers have enjoyed it just as much as we have. We can't wait to see what the next few years have in store. We believe that this is a true community pub and our customers have been involved in making the pub what it is today."
