Opened in 1984 by popular hotelier Nigel Carnell the Crown & Anchor Pub immediately became the premier pub in the fast-growing city of Grande Prairie Alberta. For the next 11 years, Nigel and his partner Todd Zahorodniuk grew the Crown into a popular gathering place based on excellent service and a true English pub atmosphere.

In the fall of 1995 new owners purchased the Crown. Businessman Allan Furey and Restaurateur Charles Rodgers made it their mission to maintain the history of service, quality products, and community involvement set by the previous ownership team.

For the last 27 years, they have done just that.
