The History of The Crown
The Crown is in St Nicholas historic Market and it was built on the medieval Bristol Tolzey Court. This court had been a meeting place for Bristol's merchants and had jurisdiction over a wide range of cases involving damage claims or disputed debts. The Crown has occupied this site since 1741. Originally it was the vaulted cellars that formed the original trading area. These were initially known as The Trap, but subsequently became known as The Crown Tap Cellar. There remains a bar in the cellars of The Crown and the new owners have renamed it fittingly The Trap once more. The ground floor Crown as you find it now was extensively refurbished in 1991.
