c18382012CROW IN THE OAK
Crow In The Oak~ Lockhurst La Crow In The Oak Lockhurst La The crow is said to represent King Charles II, who famously hid from his pursuers in an oak tree. In 1895 the pub was purchased by Phillips and Marriott, they appear to have been leasing it since 1881. They valued it at £2,500 in 1899. In 1910 they stated that 'the quantity of ale brewed shall not exceed the quantity supplied from the brewery.' It was known as a home brew pub until the early twentieth century. In 1985 it was described as a fairly straightforward two-roomed local with some friendly regulars. I guess that Mrs Annie Riley and Mrs A. Church are one and the same.
