Our 16th Century Inn is the oldest Inn in Hertfordshire and is famous for its warm welcome and delicious home-made food. Steeped in history, the Hand & Crown was once popular with King Henry VIII and his then wife, Anne Boleyn and today it is still the perfect country retreat for drinking, dining and relaxing.

Nestled in the beautiful Hertfordshire village of High Wych in Sawbridgeworth it is close to the border of Essex.

Our main restaurant at The Hand and Crown offers a charming bar and dining area where guests can enjoy our delicious home cooked food, wide section of wines and traditional ale. All our ingredients are delivered fresh every day and cooked to order every time.

Our friendly team are renowned for their warm Hand and Crown welcome which is why our customers return from far and wide.

**We look forward to re-opening our indoor restaurant from the 17th May in line with Government guidelines.

In the meantime, The Hand and Crown will be open from the 12 April for bookings in our Pavilion.
