The Crown & Thistle at the heart of Abingdon-on-Thames is a stunning modern interpretation of a traditional coaching inn, having recently benefited from a major £1.8m refurbishment.

There is a free car park at the rear of the venue or there is the public car park next to Waitrose where parking is free for 2 hours, or £1.50 for 3 hours.

Why are we different?

  • Low membership fees – and £20 per meeting
  • Free advertising available on the website
  • We start after the school run!
  • Flexible attendees makes for vibrant and changing energy
  • A friendly atmosphere encouraging even the newest of businesses to start networking

How does it work?

  • 9.30 Informal networking and coffee
  • 10.00 Brunch and introductions
  • 10.30 Focused sessions with two businesses of your choice, allowing you time to get to know each other
  • 11.00 Interactive speaker/presentation
  • 11.30 Close

NB: It would be much appreciated if you could give us 48 hours notice if you can’t attend a meeting as we have to book brunch with the restaurant, and will have to invoice you accordingly.
