Ye Olde Crown public house stands on Westport Road in Burslem, formerly known as Liverpool Road until 1878, and previously to that called Hill Street.
It is believed to have been constructed before 1812, with the landlord stating in 1982 that he holds the land deeds dating back to 1669. The building is bay fronted with moulded timber surround and central doorway with an internal porch. The door is panelled, above which a wrought iron pub sign is displayed.
