Campaign for Real Ale

Where Are They Now - Crown Inn, Stonehouse

Crown Inn, 28 Manor Street, Stonehouse, PL1 1TW

The Crown Inn, Stonehouse, was established as a public house for well over 100 years, before changing its’ name in 1983 to General Moore, in honour of the Commander of the British land forces during the Falklands Conflict of 1982.

Unfortunately, we have very few details about the pub, but do believe that is had a strong affiliation with the Royal Marines. It has not been listed in any of the CAMRA guides that have been published over the years, so we can only assume that real ale was not readily available here.

The pub reflected the customers and clientele of the day. Sadly, it is believed to have closed in the late 1990s/early 2000s. The pub is now operating as the Oasis Project community cafe. Please contact Plymouth CAMRA if you have any further details.
