History of the Crown Inn - Prior to the 1560's the Manor of Hartest belonged to the Bishop of Ely and Hartest Hall was probably the residence of his steward. The earliest mention of the hall is in the will of John Bridge (1597) when he left the hall and three surrounding acres to his son, William. It was not until 1778 that Ann Butts, wife of the then Bishop of Ely, bequeathed to her daughter the property now known as `The Crown Inn`.
