Crown and Sceptre, Dover

Welcome to The Crown & Sceptre

A handsome local pub dating over 100 years

The Crown & Sceptre is a friendly little place, loved by the locals and welcoming to newcomers, with thriving pub sports teams, BT Sport for Premier League Football and Rugby matches, and late opening on Fridays and Saturdays.

One of its most interesting and unusual features is the outdoor skittle alley in the small, attractive courtyard garden, with lots of comfy seating and a covered smoking area - a lovely place to pass a summer's evening or while away an hour with a pint or a delicious coffee and your newspaper on a sunny Sunday morning.

Community space

The Crown & Sceptre is regarded as very much a community space and are delighted to offer it to local clubs and societies for meetings, celebrations and 'occasions' like post-Christening or funeral buffets. 

Live and recorded music is a regular feature. Our music offerings include live bands and solo performers. If you like a little activity with your drink, try darts, pool, skittles or failing that borrow a pack of cards from the bar or watch the football or rugby on BT Sport.

Our teams

Groups already active at the Crown and Sceptre are our Tuesday night pool night now with a A and B team,  Wednesday night is ladies night, with darts in the winter and women's skittles in the summer, not taken seriously but more of a social occasion.

Weekend afternoons are perfect for bringing children and grandchildren to play in the pub garden or even get a little friendly rivalry sorted out through a skittles match.

In fine weather the barbecue comes out.
