CROWN INN, Oakengates and


Welcome to the web page for Oakengates’ Good Beer Guide-listed Crown Inn and Dawley’s Elephant & Castle. We aim to provide you with the best drinking experience, both pubs being Cask Marque accredited. We have served some 18,000 different cask ales in the last 25 years at the Crown Inn and 9 years at the Elephant. We also offer a great range of spirits, wines, soft drinks and bottled beers from around the world.


This week, we should have been well into the “Telford Fringe“, with Edinburgh Festival Preview Comedy Nights at both venues, Open Mic Night at the Crown Inn and two private parties at the Elephant & Castle. Instead, we are limited to selling drinks and bar snacks to customers old and new, either from the Courtyard of the Crown Inn or, for larger orders, by delivery to you.

Although the Government has understandably prevented customers from drinking in pubs until at least 4th July, Oakengates’ Crown Inn and Dawley’s Elephant & Castle are still supplying drinks to take home by arrangement.  We’re taking orders and enquiries on our BEER SHOP enquiry line 07901 513085, still providing our Draught Real Ales, Bottled Beers & Cider, Wines, Soft Drinks and Snacks. The phone is normally staffed at least between 12 noon and 3pm Wednesdays to Saturdays, although you can leave a message at any time if we are not available. Here are pictures of some of our range.

A selection of our British Bottled Beers includes Backyard, Beartown, Brewdog, Heritage, Hobson’s, Ludlow & Thornbridge breweries, some of which are shown here.

Collection is available to order by prior arrangement from the rear door of the Crown Inn, adjacent to Oakengates Bus Station and Limes Walk Car Park.  We have a limited number of 10-litre (around 18 pints) “Bag in Box” Polypins for £4.50.

All our draught beers are currently only £2.00 per pint! Contact us by phone to find the beers available each day.

We are also offering an extensive range of British & Overseas bottled beers and ciders.  Discount applies to larger orders of British bottles.  A selection of shorter-dated Overseas ones is available at only £2.50 each.  Details available on enquiry.


In addition, we provide a delivery service of drinks & snacks within Telford, aiming to deliver the same day (if required) for orders received between 12 noon and 3p.m.

Certain beers, ciders and wines are available to pre-order by the case or the bottle, while our foreign bottled beers are available individually.  For complete cases of beers, it is advisable to order as far in advance as possible.  We can also offer our range of snacks and soft drinks.

Unlike many home-delivery services, we are not charging for delivery, provided the order comes to at least £30 per delivery.  We will not be carrying change, so please have the correct agreed cash available on delivery.

Our British Bottled Beers include those from Backyard, Beartown, Brewdog, Hobson’s, Ludlow and Thornbridge breweries, some of which are shown here.
