The Crewe and Harpur is a Marston's Inn beside the extraordinary Swarkestone Bridge and Causeway, the longest stone bridge in England. Begun in the 13th century it was the scene of a battle in the Civil War and the point where Bonnie Prince Charlie turned back to Scotland in 1745.
With all that history surrounding it this 17th century coach house is sadly lacking in atmosphere and character. It serves its purpose well enough - dispensing ale and pub grub. It continues its historic purpose as an inn too and has well appointed rooms at reasonable rates (see Reserve a Room - above). Its excellent location is handy for attractions such as Ashbourne, Alton Towers, Donnington Park Race Track, The Peak District, Denby Pottery, Calke Abbey & Melbourne Hall.
