A much-loved pub located in Farnham Common has officially opened under a new head chef.

Chef Chris Wheeler, known for his culinary work at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, has now taken on a new venture as head chef and co-owner of The Crown Inn.

Chris hopes to delight customers with his new venture, with a grand opening having taken place on Saturday, February 4.

Newly named “Chris Wheeler at The Crown Inn”, the eatery will offer bar snacks and small plates to classic British dishes and fine dining experiences.

Chris said: "We want to bring a little bit of everything. A brasserie in the front and fine dining in the back.

"We want to cater for everybody. The idea is that we want everybody to be able to come here."

"We want to keep it very modern British. I like to cook for what people like to eat - I like to mix old and new."

Chris worked at Stoke Park for nearly 20 years where he was the Executive Chef.

He now hopes that his return to the food scene will be a triumphant one, and that The Crown Inn will become the "beating heart" of food in the local area.

“I am very excited to be opening Chris Wheeler at The Crown.

"We have an amazing team, a great atmosphere and tantalising dishes ready to serve to our customers.

"My philosophy is to serve high-quality food in a comfortable and homely setting accompanied by excellent service.”
