The Crown and Sandy's Ombersley

Almost next door is the Crown and Sandys. This fine inn, mentioned in the parish register in 1740, has a late Georgian front, but parts are older, and it was said previously to have been thatched. The Court Leet was held here until 1924 at least and the tythes paid there,

On the occasion of the Court Leet, two officers were appointed especially concerned with taverns and ale-houses; 1. the High Taster, for drink, and 2. the Low Taster, for food. They held office for a year, and tasted food and drink at any tavern on the parish, where they could demand a half-pint of ale to sample.
