The Crown Inn in - Stornoway

The Oban Times - - Feature -


So the Prince of Wales walks into a bar. It’s not a joke; it’s a true story from one of Scot­land’s most iconic, and award-win­ning bars.

The Crown Inn in Stornoway may be best known as the place a 14-year old Prince Charles snuck away for a brandy, but these days it’s gar­ner­ing awards for at­tributes such as its friendly, re­lax­ing at­mos­phere and ex­ten­sive craft gin se­lec­tion.

The Crown Inn has won the Best Ho­tel Bar and Best Bar Man­ager (Mar­cus Hird) at the Is­lands Re­gional Fi­nal of the Scot­tish Ho­tel Awards. Since its 2015 re­fur­bish­ment, The Crown Lounge Bar has be­come the place to re­lax and en­joy a tip­ple and a snack while vis­it­ing the Isle of Lewis, boast­ing a lo­cal feel with a drink se­lec­tion that ri­vals a metropoli­tan area.

As well as an ex­ten­sive whisky and beer se­lec­tion, The Crown of­fers more than 90 craft gins and jen­ev­ers, each hand se­lected by Mar­cus and his knowl­edge­able team, who are happy to help guests choose the per­fect nip.
