The Harvester public house stands at the summit of Langdon Hills.

An Inn has occupied this site for many centuries, being known for much of that time as the Crown Inn or Crown Hotel, or in more recent times as simply the Crown.

The present building dates from 1856 and was so named as it stands on land formerly owned by the Crown.

The hill by which it is approached from Basildon, or Laindon, is locally known as 'Crown Hill' and since the 1960s is now duel carriageway to road traffic.

For many years it was run by brewers Ind Coope and Allsopp.

An entertainment hall was later built within the grounds which opened in 1923. This survived until around the 1980s or early 1990s. A small coat of arms once adorned the front facing wall. This appears to have gone missing sometime in the 1990s, possibly during the conversion to Harvester.
