About the Crown & Hammer


Collinsville, Connecticut was built around the Collins Company Axe Factory in the early 1800's. The axe factory closed in 1966, but the charming town remained. The Crown & Hammer Restaurant & Pub was established in 2005 in the old Collinsville Train Depot. Deriving it's name from the iconic symbols of the Collins Axe Factory, the Crown & Hammer's atmosphere and decor reflect the history of the town.

John and Lisa Maurer, owners of Lisa's Luna Pizza, assumed ownership in November of 2014. The Maurers brought in Executive Chef Michael Alfled to revamp the menu. The building and interior motif were not disturbed in order to maintain the historical significance of the town.
