Legend has it that when the Warwick section of The Grand Union Canal was being built in the early 1800s the Tavern on Crompton Street was charging a mere four pennies for a cup of coffee and a tot of rum. Other inns were charging an “outrageous” six pennies! Hence, The Fourpenny Shop. It has had a few other names over its lifetime; The Paul Pry, The Warwick Tavern, and The Old Fourpenny Shop. Following a total refurbishment, we have given the pub a new name to go with its new look: ‘The Silver Groat Tavern’. The Hotel will continue to be known as The Old Fourpenny Shop Hotel. At The Silver Groat Tavern you will find six ever-changing real ales, craft lagers, ciders and a global selection of fine wines. Our food menus have been designed so they are affordable, seasonal, generously portioned, and use locally sourced produce. The Silver Groat is a great place to enjoy gorgeous grub and grog!!
