The first week of trading is complete and, despite a couple of early niggles, new landlord Ade Jones and landlady Sarah Nubeebuckus-Jones are delighted to join the village!
Coming from a pub in Wantage, Oxford, the couple are very keen to make their mark and enjoy a long term at The Crown. Ade said
“It’s only been a week but it feels like we’ve been here a lot longer, people have been so welcoming!“
Their first Saturday saw the best sales since the pub re-opened in February which even considering the curiosity factor is a great sign for the future of the pub. With a new menu all hand made by Sarah and locally sourced produce, the eating should also do well. Look out for the special sausage and mash nights in the near future, cheekily called ‘S&M’, named with a nod to the previous problems the pub has endured…
I hope everyone finds the time to at least stick their head round the door to welcome the newest landlords in town!
