Having recently changed hands (sadly Pete Bowles is no longer with us) the new management at The Crown have introduced live music on Friday and Saturday nights. The acts are mostly local (ish) and range from solo acoustic performers to lively rock quartets such as Couch, pictured.
These evenings make for a fun night out much appreciated by residents and visitors alike.
Also to be looked out for are forthcoming mini festivals (including a beer one).
Lynton is the smallest town in the UK to have a full-time cinema and perhaps this is the smallest cinema in a UK town as well. The cinema has 2 evening perfomances during the summer, the early evening being for family showings, and one nightly in the winter months. Situated in a former Methodist church the theatre has only 68 seats but with ample leg-room and is a fully up-to-date modern set up with Dolby SR sound and air-conditioning.
This is where it all happens for the village youngsters with live music, kareoake (or however that's spelt!), the odd disco, juke box, IT machine, big-screen television, pool table AND a wi-fi connection. This is pleasant, friendly pub and is open all day until late (sometimes very late at weekends) with food at lunchtime and sometimes early evenings.
I haven't had a chance to get up the hill on a weekend night yet but there have been a couple of lively evenings during the week where despite the crowd being predominantly youngsters there have been a few of us oldies too, with me sitting in my corner typing away!
Dress Code: Don't be silly, but scantily dressed females always appreciated ;)
