The Crown pub in Hawk Green has reopened following a joint investment from Robinsons Brewery and licensee Simon Hood.
Robinsons award-winning design team, who have been responsible for some of the most talked about pub refurbishments in the region, worked around the clock for nine weeks to reinvigorate The Crown with a new direction that puts great quality food and cask beer at the heart of the pub.
Internally, the designers removed obstructing pillars in the trading area to create continuity between the drinking and dining areas and the new low level snug area has become the perfect place to unwind.
The new bar area, which proudly displays a new collection of handpicked wines and spirits along with four copper hand pulls, instantly grabs your attention and has been designed to perfectly complement the rustic feel of the décor. With a palette of autumnal tones, deep brown leathers and an emphasis on the pubs’ traditional features – such as the buildings original wooden beams and exposed masonry – The Crown has maintained its charm as a country pub whilst seamlessly marrying traditional with contemporary design.
Externally, the pub has been transformed thanks to a brand new planting scheme, seating areas and Robinsons trademark copper signage. The Crown now stands proudly and draws you in from the road ensuring that the pub will be enjoyed not just by Hawk Green locals but by passers-by as well.
The new menu, created by head chef Neil Hobson, champions fresh produce with a focus on using the highest quality ingredients. From hanging skewers to a range of 28 day aged steaks alongside classic British favourites, the new menu is an explosion of hearty cuisine served with a premium flair.
Ellis Wardle, Business Development Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “The refurbishment looks brilliant and has allowed The Crown to change direction and offer a more comprehensive food menu along with a larger premium range of beers, spirits and wines. We’ve worked closely with Simon from the start as we wanted to not only keep what made the pub special with the regulars but appeal to more passing trade. The new offering certainly does that and this new chapter for The Crown will be exciting for not only the residents of Hawk Green but for the entire area.”
Simon Hood, Licensee of The Crown said: “The transformation is breathtaking and we are all delighted with the outcome, as are our customers. We’ve had very little teething issues despite having a brand new kitchen, online booking system and tills; in fact the overwhelming success has led to us already looking for more staff to join our team. I want to thank the hard work of everyone at Robinsons for making The Crown a stunning success.”
